Dinner date with punks & pioneers

Vintage evening sees Hotel du Vin toast the best of Australian wine

As part of its on-going series of wine dinners, Hotel du Vin hosted an evening that celebrated the ‘Punks and Pioneers’ of the wine world and invited guests to challenge their perceptions (and misconceptions) about Australian wine. A four-course menu was paired with some excellent vintages selected by Katie Smith and Nadia Rae of Bibendum, which included those from maverick producer Col McBride.
