The highlight of our Grange series, the Grand Grange Masterclass & Lunch is an indulgence of fine red wine, great food and excellent company.

2014 Penfolds Grange
2014 Brokenwood Graveyard
2014 Mount Pleasant Maurice O'Shea
2014 Silkman Reserve Shiraz

The afternoon begins with a Grange Masterclass led by none other than Iain Riggs AM. A Hunter Valley, Australian & international legend, Iain was at the helm of Brokenwood for over 35 years. One of his many achievements for Brokenwood was the elevation of Brokenwood's Graveyard Shiraz to the highest category of ‘Exceptional’ in the Langton's Classification of Australian wine. Iain will guide you through this incredible bracket of wines, giving his unique insight into their provenance and quality.

After the Masterclass you will be served a cleansing glass of sparkling on the terrace before settling into a stellar lunch by chef Andy Wright, accompanied by a bracket of some of the finest 2019 vintage reds.
