We have been enjoying a busy 2014, and have just celebrated our third birthday. Melbourne Food and Wine Festival’s Winter Roast Collection was a successful and fun event. We are also continuing to host regular “Producers Lunches” on Sundays with the next being held on the 27th July with Delatite wines.
Make sure you also have a look at some of our recent past events.
