Comparative Tasting Dinner at Safety Beach Sailing Club

For this year’s Comparative Tasting we are comparing Mornington Peninsula against wines from the Pyrenees. The event starts at 7pm.

For this year’s Comparative Tasting we are comparing Mornington Peninsula against wines from the Pyrenees and, as we usually do, we are planning on having a winemaker from each region to talk to their respective Region wines. 

This is an interesting comparison as the Pyrenees is best known for its big reds and the Peninsula for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Nick and I have tried to put together a combination of wines to showcase both areas. 

David Snooks will again provide a set of courses to complement the wines as he has so successfully done in the past. For those of you who haven’t attended one of our functions at SBSC before, you are in for a treat, as you will experience some of the best cooking on the Peninsula. 

The format will be our traditional one of 6 flights of masked wines matched with 6 courses of food. Tables will be made up to as close to 10 people as we can make them with one of the people on the table appointed as Table Captain to pour the wines and tabulate the wine ratings from the table participants. 

This year’s wine flights will be: Rose, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon 

Should you have dietary needs, please specify at time of booking and alternative courses will be arranged.
