Description

Wine Selectors invite you to join members of Australia’s First Families of Wine for a showcase of incredible wines matched with delicious fare at Guy Grossi’s Merchant restaurant in Melbourne.

Asked to nominate their favourite wines that they enjoy with their favourite meals, the AFFW have put forward an impressive list of wines that is as diverse as the regions and styles they represent. The team at Merchant then put together a 3-course menu that matches four wines with each course.

Joining us for the evening will be Sally Webber of De Bortoli Wines, Andreas Henschke of Henschke, Scott McWilliam of McWilliam’s Wines, and Monica George of Tahbilk.

Guy Grossi’s Merchant is a relaxed Venetian Osteria. The menu is designed to be shared in a family style atmosphere bringing together regional cuisine and knowledgeable service.
