One of the most rewarding things about hosting winemakers on a Friday night is the opportunity to promote new labels from our own backyard. Tonight’s combo fits that bill – Alkimi Wines with maker Stuart Dudine, and DCB (Domaine Chtis Bendle) with, you guessed it, maker Chris Bendle!

Both come with serious local street cred – Stu has experience with Yarra Yering, Mac Forbes and Oakridge, while Chris has been Franco’s right hand man at Hoddles Creek Estate for the last few years – he’s been to Franco’s school of pricing too – these wines are BARGAINS!

So there you have it – 2014 DCB Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, and 2014 Alkimi Syrah – low in volume, high on quality, all from 5:00pm with the lads.

Do yourself a big favour…..!!
