Fancy some wine?

Popping bottles and a four course meal on a Sunday afternoon? Wine not!

That’s exactly what happened last Sunday when we were invited to Wharf One‘s wine tasting event that showcased a range of new and upcoming wines! Not to mention, Wharf One have recently been presented a gold plate award for restaurant of the year 2017, as well best standalone restaurant 2017 and best themed restaurant 2017, so obviously our expectations were quite high.

So what did we get at this lovely event? A huge belly and lots more:

The 6 Wines (left to right) –  Sparkling Sterling Presecco, Sparkling Sterling Presecco Rose, Coldstream Hill Pinot Chardonnay, Heemskirk Chardonnay Pinot, Salinger Vintage, Sparkling Shiraz.

Upon entering Wharf One, we were presented with a taste of a Sparkling Presecco in a beautiful metal cup that frosted nicely in the area of the drink. Everyone wanted to take home the cup, as did we.

Some canapes were also being offered as we were waiting for all guests so arrive

Getting straight into it, the event was hosted by the lovely Amy Hetherington with Con Daglas as the ambassador for the wines.  A brief story behind each accompanying wine was shared with the audience before each course, and each course was delicious! Here are the photos!

Furthermore, as you may or may not know, one of our writer/foodie founder is a vegetarian, so we were also able to have a glimpse and a taste of their vegetarian options. Only the First and Third course had to be substituted as the other courses are already vegetarian.


Grilled Eggplant and capsicum, with crumbed feta.


Roasted Cauliflower, beans, broccoli, kale, and scallions.

Throughout the event, the atmosphere was kept alive thanks to the lovely host Amy and Con, as well as the continual flow of wine and amazing food. The open kitchen of the restaurant also added to the atmosphere as we saw the food being made and prepared before our eyes.

All in all, it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and we had a fabulous time. There’s actually another event on the 26th of November, so if this blog made you think “Oh I wish I went to that!” Well, you can!
