Wine Discovery Dinner at ALMA | Geelong
You’re invited to come along as Wine Selectors travels to Geelong in June for a special dinner that explores a selection of unique wine varieties, partnered with a four course South American inspired feast.
Enjoy the likes of a vibrant and lively Arinto, an Italian-inspired blend of Sangiovese, Nero d’Avola, Lagrein and Primitivo, and an intensely flavourful Mataro alongside some of the South American inspired cuisine that head chef Jesse Hughes, formally of Vue Grand Queenscliff, is renowned for.
This exciting dining event takes place at ALMA Restaurant, one of Geelong’s culinary stars, where you’ll experience a fresh, produce-focused menu, which is the result of Hughes’ extensive classical training combined with his passion for South American flavours.
Your personal host for the evening will be our Wine Educator, ensuring your wine tasting journey is in both entertaining and knowledgeable hands.
