TarraWarra Estate Winemaker and General Manager Clare Halloran is venturing to
Melbourne’s popular South American restaurant Palermo on Monday, 5 August for a special wine dinner
that will explore the comparison of Australian vs. Argentinian wines. With more
than 20 years experience making wine at the internationally renowned Yarra
Valley winery, Clare is one of the most skilful winemakers in the country.
“Argentina, like Australia, has a diverse climate and strong wine-growing
culture, spread across many distinct regions. This is a fantastic opportunity
to gain an understanding of Argentinian wine and its importance as the fifth
largest producer in the world. Paired with an authentic menu, it promises to be
an informative and enjoyable evening,” says Clare.
Clare will join Palermo’s celebrated wine expert Emilia Flotts,
uncovering the nitty gritty facts about each country’s unique wine offerings,
including the influence of varying climates and terrain differences.
Guests will journey across Australia and Argentina with an
educational wine tasting, while enjoying an authentic three-course Argentinian
meal prepared by Palermo Head Chef Mikey Dalton.
With only 40 tickets available, the intimate and informative event
is one not to be missed by both wine enthusiasts and beginners alike.
