Borrowed from Bordeaux, the idea of En Primeur is essentially to gain a sneak peak into the vintage – a chance to taste a young wine pre-release and gain an insight into the vintage before the wine has matured and been bottled.
We’re delighted to announce the classic long lunch will be hosted by our Managing Director, James Metcalfe.
Urban Winery Sydney has collated 8 of the states most exciting winemakers to give you a rare opportunity to taste their 2018 vintage pre-release wines and see how terroir and winemaking come together – something normally only seen working in a winery.
This is a chance to chat to the winemakers face to face, gain an understanding of what they are looking for from the fruit and how they expect their wines to change over time. A real behind-the-scenes experience!
Post tasting, enjoy a unique lunch with the winemakers – a remarkable opportunity to chat all things NSW and wine, with a classic long lunch hosted by chef James Metcalfe (ex Becasse and now the very new Saint George).
Four courses matched eight of the best NSW wines – all poured and talked through by the winemakers themselves.
1pm – 4pm, $150pp, includes a ticket to the tasting to start your day!
