An Evening with David Franz - Winemaker Dinner

Sunday 24th June | 5.30pm 

This Sunday 24th June join us for a leisurely dinner with special guest David Franz.

Sharing his experience and knowledge acquired from his father - Peter Lehmann, David will be showcasing wines from his Barossa winery with our lucky guests.

“Through experience and great mentors, my knowledge and passion for our vines has grown. I now manage the family’s Stelzer and Stonewell Hill vineyards (around 75 acres). Carte blanche in the vineyards has allowed for a focus on producing fruit of the highest quality, without compromising for the sake of yields. In real terms it means that I produce my wines from the vine to the bottle. Pruning is where the journey starts, not just when the grapes are picked and arrive at the winery.”

This exclusive wine dinner is priced at $120pp and includes 5 wines meticulously paired with 5 courses by Head Chef John Frid.
