September

The Whole Pig with Matthew Evans and James Mele: A two-day hands on pork workshop. Sat 4-Sun 5 September 2021

Saturday September 4 - Sunday September 5

SOLD OUT  Sorry. You may want to join the waiting list for the next one.

The transformation of pork is miraculous. Sweet fresh leg meat can become fragrant prosciutto given salt and time. Minced shoulder cures into mouthwatering salami. Middles can become luscious smoky bacon, delicately spiced pancetta, or complex tasting lonzo. Join us on a two day workshop exploring the art and alchemy of pork butchery.
PRICE: $750

Lunch & Some Cracking Good Wines - 11 September, 2021

Saturday September 11

A special spring feast to celebrate Samantha Connew's new season wines. Sam is a brilliant winemaker based just outside Hobart in the Coal River Valley. Stargazer is her brand. This will be a chance for us all to try her latest releases. Brand new Tupelo, two different rieslings, one from Sam's own Palisander vineyard and her fulsome pinot, boasting lean tannin and mouthwatering depth. We can’t wait to see what we can gather on the farm that week to match with Sam's exceptional wines.

"The intense palate is all class, blending purity, precision and power." James Halliday on Sam's 2019 Pinot
PRICE: $190
