Freakishly Matched at Vintners Bar & Grill


Barossa Gourmet Weekend

Friday 1st September

Part 1 – Freakishly Matched Masterclass – Starts at 11:00am

John Hughes first vintage of Rieslingfreak was in 2009, with a Clare Valley Riesling. Since then John has expanded the brand to include vineyards in Eden Valley and Polish Hill River. Together with traditional dry wines John also makes Riesling in Off Dry, Kabinett, Fortfied and Sparkling styles.

Join John for a Riesling Masterclass before lunch where you will learn more about this noble variety, with the different styles, regions and winemaking techniques. This will include comparing wines from the Rieslingfreak Collection with wines from Riesling’s ancestral homeland, Germany.

Following the masterclass your day will continue at the Freakishly Matched lunch.

Part 2 – Freakishly Matched Lunch – Starts at 12:30pm

Join other passionate Riesling Freaks and let John Hughes take you on a journey through the stunning 2017 Rieslingfreak release together with back vintage Rieslings to match perfectly with the menu from the iconic Vintners Bar & Grill.

Vintners Head Chef Peter Clarke and Host Rami Heer will share their passion for fresh, local and seasonal produce using their extensive experience to marry flavours that will tantalise your tastebuds.

The fusion between Rieslingfreak and Vintners will be a memorable experience not to be missed, all without a drop of red in the house!
