Wine Tastings

Rochester Ginger tastings

Tastings will re-commence in Spring.

Meredith Dairy Cheese/Yoghurt tastings

These tastings finished on Sunday 12 August. After tasting these cheeses in Canberra since 2012, Meredith Dairy Cheeses has decided that it is not in their interests to continue these tastings (in Canberra) any longer. We have enjoyed our association with the company over the years and despite the tough economic times, we wish them all the best for the future.

Brunch

No plans at this stage to organise Saturday Brunches in 2018.

Next Dinner

Details of our next Wine and Food Matching Dinner ( set down for Saturday 15 September at Trev’s@Dickson) will be published here soon. Our Dinner on Saturday 30 June was a great success.
