Meet The Winemaker Dinner | McWilliam's Wines | Melbourne

It’s not often you get invited to dine with one of Australia’s most iconic winemaking families and their Chief Winemaker, so don’t miss this special opportunity! Synonymous with innovative Australian winemaking, McWilliam’s have curated a unique dining experience featuring a glittering line-up of award-winning wines.

With a grand total of 6 x Trophies and 28 x Gold medals amassed in just three years, you’ll taste your way through a range of McWilliam’s flagship wines, including the 1877 Shiraz (8x Gold medal winner), and the incredibly elegant McW 660 Reserve Syrah (Trophy-winner at the 2018 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge), plus the latest 2019 vintages of the McW 480 Estate Pinot Grigio and brand new Rosé.

It’s also your opportunity to meet McWilliam’s Chief Winemaker Andrew Higgins, whose gentle guidance and technical precision have helped elevate McWilliam’s wines to new heights. Listen in as he shares his thoughts on what it takes to make a stand-out wine, as well as rare insights into this iconic wine family’s storied history and future endeavours.

Situated in the heart of Melbourne’s Italian Quarter, Bottega has curated a bespoke four course Italian menu, paired perfectly to an incredible selection from the McWilliam’s range. Book now, and ensure your seat at the table.
