The first is at Kyneton’s fabulous Royal George (one Hat Age Good Food Guide 2009) featuring five local wines selected by Wine Australia as Landmark Australian wines. The Landmark event was a recent intensive presentation of Australia’s greatest and most unique wines to twelve international wine professionals, including many Masters of Wine. The wines were selected, and tastings presented, by Max Allen, James Halliday, Brian Croser and many other journalists and winemakers. For more information please see www.landmark-wineaustralia.com

The second is a celebration of Bindi wine and Vue de Monde’s food in their private room. We have had a long association, since Vue’s earliest days in 2001 when Shannon Bennett began in Carlton. This relationship has progressed to the stage where for the past five years Bindi has grown and bottled a special Pinot Noir specifically for Vue de Monde. This lunch will be a lot of fun and will include Bindi 2003 Sparkling, Composition and Quartz Chardonnays, Bindi Vue de Monde and Block 5 Pinots and our Pyrette Heathcote Shiraz.
