2009 Curly Flat Release Dinners

As we all know wine is best enjoyed with great food.  To highlight this fact were holding several dinners over the next few months to showcase the new release 2009 Curly Flat Pinot Noir. We’ll also be showing three older vintages of Pinot (’01, ‘03 & ‘05), which serves as a great opportunity to see the youthful splendor of vibrant fruit and at once, how with age, our wines sublime gracefully into a more complex and rarefied savoury expression of top Pinot Noir.

Bolstering further an already insightful event you’ll also see our current Curly Flat Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Rosé.  Wines that have each been identified as prime examples of varietal or stylistic expression by critics and consumers alike.

Harvest Lunch @ Curly Flat – April 2012  Date & Price: TBC

Harvest this year will see a Pinot release lunch in our 1880’s homestead, Vintage Hall. Worth it for the dining experience alone but harvest is also a great time to visit Curly Flat.  Come and see the activity in the winery whilst gaining further insights into our story and our vineyard based approach to wine making.

 

A very special weekend…

As you may be aware the Macedon Ranges Budburst festival is on this coming weekend, where the cellars open their doors and arms to welcome you to what our region has to offer.  Curly Flat is no exception to this and like the duality of smoke and fire, where there’s great wine there’s fine food.  To celebrate that spectacular union Saturday (12th November) will see chef Emma Chapple of Kyneton Bistro Star Anise utilising Vintage Hall to provide all comers with a seasonal menu of sensory delights from 11.30am to 4pm and of course Curly Flat and Williams Crossing wines will be available by the glass.  Please call us on 5429 1956 for any queries or bookings.

Come Sunday we have another very special guest and friend of Curly Flat, Andrew McConnell (and his exceptional staff!) returning to us for his fifth time to effortlessly remind us of his refined yet relaxed definition of a ‘long lunch’.  This event unsurprisingly sold out very quickly, so to those seeking culinary comfort on Sunday again from 11.30am to 4pm, Emma Chapple will be serving up a range of light food options in the winery, like for example Rare roast beef, smoky tomato relish and rocket baguettes…

All in all it will be a weekend of great food and wine, which of course is always a celebration in itself!
