De Bortoli Award Winning Wines with a Set Lunch Menu

Thursday 1st October 2015, 12.30 – 14.30 p.m.


Steve Webber, winemaker at the De Bortoli family winery and one of Australia’s most influential wine makers, is a Yarra Valley expert having moved there with his wife Leanne De Bortoli 30 years ago.

De Bortoli Wines was founded by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli, an Italian couple who moved to Australia in 1928 from their mountain village in the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo. Today the business is run by their grandchildren and their Italian heritage still drives the way the family makes wine. De Bortoli’s focus is on careful site selection, vine maturity and high input viticulture, whilst in the winery their belief is minimal interference allowing the wine to ‘make itself.’

Steve will be presenting a selection of 8 fabulous wines over a four course lunch* giving us an insight into the history of the De Bortoli winery and how the wines are made. Please reserve your place by speaking to a member of staff at the bar or emailing

*Details of the menu will be posted nearer the time as the menu is prepared using seasonal produce available from the market. Please let us know when you book if you have any special dietary requirements and we can supplement the fixed menu with something suitable from our daily menu.
