Moorooduc Est. Wine Dinner – Tuesday 8th October 2019, 7pm at Bow Lane

After several false starts, wine production finally got going in the Mornington Peninsula, south east of Melbourne, in the mid-1970s, and in the intervening years the region has established itself as the most important area in Australia for Burgundian varieties; a status that has only grown as global warming has affected longer established Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards.

Dr Richard McIntyre and his wife Jill were early pioneers of the region. Inspired by the wines of Burgundy they searched for a suitable place to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and settled on the cool maritime climate and rolling hills of the Mornington Peninsula.

After almost 40 vintages, Dr Richard McIntyre, who describes himself as ‘a lapsed surgeon’, still makes the wines with the help of his daughter, Kate – or Kate McIntyre MW, to give her full title.

Kate will be at Bow Lane to present a range of Moorooduc’s wines, including the chance to compare the top-of-the-range McIntyre Vineyard and Robinson Vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. This is a dinner that shouldn’t be missed by lovers of Australian wines, or by lovers of Burgundian varietals.

Doesn’t that include everyone?
