An Exceptional Pork + Pinot Dinner

We are hosting a delectable evening all about two of our favourites, that are quite simply the perfect match. Warm up this Winter with our extraordinary Pork + Pinot dinner on Thursday June 30th.

Our Head Chef Darren Mercaldi has put together a beautiful menu of handcrafted pork creations, meticulously matched to some of the best Pinot you can find. White, red and sparkling – you will discover it all; each drop handpicked by Apples + Pears beverage manager Matthew Lamb and Sommelier Paul Bryant.

A five-course progressive dinner that showcases different cuts of pork, and how to use each in unique ways with outstanding ingredients. The wine will work in harmony with each dish, both complementing one another and enhancing their natural characteristics.
