Corks 'N' Forks - August Update

Dear Members,

Our Bastille Dinner has been and gone for another year, and what a night it was! With the Macquarie Room decorated for the occasion, a good crowd, a French inspired 5 course menu with 7 matching French wines, members and their guest all had a great night.

We’re now finalising our trip to the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley from 12-17 September, and those already taking part have made reservations at our reciprocal clubs - the RACV Resorts at Cape Schanck in the Mornington Peninsula and Healesville in the Yarra Valley. If you’re interested in joining us, or would like some more information, please ring me on 0411 103 119 or send me an email to mogigi.grj@bigpond.com.

The next of our popular ‘tasting/tours’ is scheduled for 6pm on 10 August. ‘Orange Wombats’, will feature and compare 12 wines made by 2 Club members - Ben Crossing from Angullong Wines in Orange and Ian Napier from ‘Wombat Crossing Wines’ in the Hunter. Ben and Ian will be joining us to present their wines.

For those who’ve not been before, our ‘tasting/tours’ are relaxed, informal and educative evenings designed to appeal to those members and their guests seeking an introduction to the wonderful world of wine or to expand their existing knowledge.

They’re held in the seated comfort of the Vintage Room and only 16 places are available. The wines are served in 4 flights, accompanied by 4 small food courses chosen by Chef to match the wines.

Finally, an early heads up about our annual Black Tie Henschke Dinner, this year scheduled for Friday 24 November with a ‘Roses’ theme. Although we’ve not finalised the details yet, there already seems to be much interest. It might therefore be a good idea to book early.
