2017 Vintage Celebration DINNER


In the past few years, some of Australia's top sommeliers have turned to winemaking, immersing themselves in the cellar and concentrating on the vineyard.



James Sexton of Main Ridge Estate is one of these new breed of sommeliers turned young-gun winemakers. Since 2015 he has been lucky enough to have mentor and Mornington Peninsula wine legend Nat White advising on getting the most of the exceptional grapes that Nat planted 40 years ago at the iconic Main Ridge Estate (the oldest on the peninsula). 


We are delighted to be joining with James and the Sexton Family for two wine dinners to celebrate their 2017 Vintage.

James and The Grand's Head Chef Andrew Beddoes  have collaborated to present a beautiful 5 course Italian feast matched with 7 of Main Ridge Estate's wines.

There will only be one dinner at The Grand and another at the winery, these are strictly only available to Main Ridge Estate and Grand VIP'S and their friends.  You will also have the opportunity to get your hands on their very limited remaining stock.
