As a Glandore Cellarhand Member our sought-after Firestarter Lunch is the pre-burning event that can't be missed. With only 50 tickets available, there are two just for you. 

Join Chief Winemaker Duane Roy for a sumptuous pre-ignition dining extravaganza on the deck of our cellar door overlooking the beautiful Hunter Valley vineyards. 

The wine list is full of rare gems and old faithfuls, scoured from the depths of the cellar and being poured exclusively for the Firestarter's lunch. Paired with a flame cooked, 5 course degustation menu by Harry Callinan, this is the Firestarter you don't want to miss.
