Four Seasons Hotel Sydney Launches Winemaker Chef’s Table Experience
Each month, one high-profile winemaker from Australia or New Zealand will showcase their collection by pairing wines with a five-course meal including a series of vertical tastings.
The experience begins with champagne and canapés at Kable's wine bar, followed by a degustation dinner with matching wines at the Chef's Table in the kitchen's Garde Manger.
After dinner, guests will go even further 'behind the scenes' for a kitchen tour and chocolate tasting in the Four Seasons' Chocolate Room.
Four Seasons Hotel Manager Daniel Simon said the winemaker dinner concept gave guests an opportunity to try the new Kable's menu designed by Restaurant Chef, Jeffrey De Rome, while tasting some of Australasia's best wines.
"We've taken the restaurant wine-dinner concept and created a much more intimate experience where guests can socialise around one large table while learning all about the food and wine from our chef and guest winemakers."
"It was a pleasure to welcome Mitchell Taylor from Taylor's Wines as our first winemaker, who kindly shared a selection of his highly-coveted family museum wines for the inaugural dinner last month. We look forward to bringing a range of other talented winemakers to our hotel," Mr Simon said.
Upcoming dinners feature winemakers from:
Shaw & Smith in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia - May 27
Brokenwood in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales - June 24
Cloudy Bay in Marlborough, New Zealand - July 15
Other winemakers featuring throughout the year include South Australia's Rockford, Petaluma and Taylors Wines, Western Australia's Cape Mentelle Wines, Victoria's Bannockburn Wines and New Zealand's Villa Maria Wines.
The Winemaker Chef's Table dinners will be held once a month at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney and are available for $300 per person, with a maximum capacity of 19 guests per event.
