Calais Estate has created the unique experience you’ve been looking for—Winery Long Lunches. This is more than just a Winery tour, it’s the experience all wine lovers are after!
Begin the day with a glass of our sparkling wine and nibbles. Get an all access tour of the inner workings of a Boutique winery. Meet the family behind the brand, learn how wine is made and get hands on designing some of your own custom sparkling, made in the French traditional style.
Then it’s time to relax with a 5 course degustation by the renowned Verandah Restaurant (located on the Estate and one of the most popular restaurants in the Valley) with matching Calais Estate Wines. This is when you get to sample the Estate’s extensive boutique wine list, one of the largest in the Valley, and work out what styles suite your palate.
It’s a great way to spend the afternoon – eating, drinking and relaxing with new friends. Definitely an experience not to be missed but probably best to leave the car at home!
Lunches are held monthly (except in our Wine and Food Month June when they will be held weekly) but places are strictly limited as this is a very intimate experience. If you’ve a group of 10 or more we can book a private Winery Long Lunch for your celebration or get together.
When: Saturday 3rd March – 11:00am – 3:00pm
Take a fun, educational look at the life of a Winemaker at Vintage.
Join Stomp Wines on Saturday 3 March, 11am (for an 11.30am start) to 3.30pm.
Begin your experience measuring grape ripeness and sampling our 2018 juices & ferments. From here we’ll be taking a look at what it takes to make the perfect blend, we’ll put your palates to the test & see if you can create our next blend.
After the hard work, in true winemaker style, we’ll relax with an alfresco lunch prepared by Chef Matt Dillow, live tunes by Mark Henderson & a glass (or two) of wine.
Of course, no Vintage experience would be complete without some training in the art of pigeage or foot stomping. So, after lunch, we’ll provide ripe, juicy grapes for you to stomp.
Dress – enclosed flat shoes (you’ll be outside), casual clothing (nothing too good, it will get dirty, particularly if you intend to practice your foot stomping), hat & sunscreen.
