James Halliday Food and Wine Experience
Executive chef Matthew Macartney has teamed up with Australia’s greatest wine authority James Halliday to treat you to a chef’s table event you will never forget.
After a short leisurely drive through the beautiful Yarra Valley to the historic Chateau Yering, guests will be treated to a private lunch or dinner in the oak room at the award winning Eleanor’s Restaurant.
Together James and Matthew will entertain and engage as James pairs a selection of local and international wines to Matthew’s degustation menu – with many of the courses prepared at the table.
Respected wine critic and vigneron James Halliday has a career that spans over 40 years, but he is most widely known for his witty and informative writing about wine. As one of the founders of brokenwood in the lower Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, and thereafter founder of Coldstream Hills in the Yarra Valley, James is an unmatched authority on every aspect of the wine industry, from the planting and pruning of vines through to the creation and marketing of the finished product. His winemaking has led him to sojourns in Bordeaux and Burgundy, and he is constantly in demand as a wine judge in Australia and overseas.Quote Now
