Estelle Wine Dinner Series

Posted by


Craving a trip around the world?

Take a tour of the world’s best wine regions from the comfort of Estelle’s newly renovated dining room, thanks to their upcoming wine dinner series.

The dinners were created to give back to Melbourne’s wine loving community, with uniquely themed dinners that are a shift from the norm at the restaurant. Indulging curiosity with exciting wines and pairing them with excellent contemporary cookery is where it’s at.

Take the stairs to Estelle’s private dining room, where the five-course dinners will feature on the last Tuesday of every month, from June until October 2014.

With wine being the main attraction here, the nights will be hosted by a different wine maker each month, including guest cameos from chef, Scott Pickett and head sommelier, Michael Smith.

Next Tuesday 24th June, Estelle invites wine lovers to explore the wonders of the Loire Valley. The evening will showcase stunning examples of sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc , cabernet franc, artisan
sparkling and lesser known street wines. Who knows what flavours lie in between?
