Seasoned Summer Dinner with Andrew Marks

Seasoned is our quarterly wine dinner celebrating the talented community of Yarra Valley food and wine producers that we are so lucky to work and collaborate with. This summer's edition sees us joining forces with Yarra Valley winemaker & master distiller Andrew Marks (The Wanderer, Melbourne Gin CompanyGembrook Hill Vineyard). 

If you didn’t know of Andrew Mark’s activities, it would be fair to think there’s just a bit too much happening in the Gembrook Hill winery where he is based for such a humble Upper Yarra vineyard. In addition to Gembrook Hill’s releases, Andrew has his own label The Wanderer and a fun release coined El Wanderer which spawned from an annual trip to Catalonia to pick and press Carinyena (a native variety of the region).

And just as if all that winemaking wasn't keeping him busy enough, Andrew’s love of a good drink and a challenge birthed a project that has turned into something bigger than even he could have imagined, the Melbourne Gin Company. 

Join us from 7.00pm in The Stables Courtyard as we kick off the evening with sparkling and canapés prior to taking your seat at one long table for a casual, intimate and interactive dinner with Andrew Marks. The Stables kitchen team will present a 5 course tasting menu to match a collection of Marks' wines including releases from Gembrook Hill and The Wanderer.

Finishing off with petit fours and a refreshing Melbourne Gin Company Gin & Tonic, The Stables bar will be open for those wishing to purchase post dinner drinks, along with the opportunity to have a chat with Andrew.
