Discover New Grape Varieties Stokehouse City March 10 2015

Stokehouse City and Discovervin are partnering to host a special wine dinner on Tuesday, 10 March. 

Part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival which has the theme this year of, "try something new", at this dinner guests will discover new grape varieties from France.
Tannat, petit manseng, braucol, malbec and cot are all grape varieties indigenous to South-West France where dynamic producers are using organic and biodynamic methods to make exciting wines from ancient grapes and terroir.
Come and try some of these wines imported by DiscoverVin which will be accompanied by a four course menu prepared by Stokehouse City’s Head Chef, Ollie Gould. The menu (below) looks superb. We can't wait to see some of our Melbourne friends there.
