Jack's Block Lunch

Wednesday, September 07, 2016

Enjoy the ultimate foodie day out with gourmet regional fare by Wodonga's best restaurant, La Maison, matched with museum release wines.

Be one of the first to taste our 2016 Jack’s Block straight from the barrel as well as parcels of our blockbuster Durif and complex Prince Reserva. Learn how certain vineyard and winemaking techniques change and highlight particular characteristics and how choice of oak can further enhance the wine in our masterclass and vineyard tour.

Places are strictly limited to this full day experience involving great food and company. It's a great weekend to visit  North East Victoria with the Wangaratta Jazz Festival held over the weekend, the Rutherglen ‘Spring Swing’ on the following Monday and the Corowa Races on Melbourne Cup day.
