Our Winemaker Tastings & Suppers are an opportunity to spend time with some of the world’s most exciting winemakers, experiencing the wines with their expert guidance. You’ll be amazed at how much a winemaker’s personality can be expressed through their wines, and by the passion they bring to making them.
We’re delighted to welcome winemaker Darryl Catlin from Sidewood Estates in Adelaide Hills, for an evening tasting wonderful Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
Darryl grew up in the Barossa Valley and started his passion for the wine industry as a youngster. He completed his Bachelor of Wine Science in 2004. Whilst studying his time was spent working for Adelaide’s East End Cellars consolidating his knowledge before managing the independent wine store. Since joining Sidewood Estates, Darryl’s hard work has earned much recognition including ‘Best Red Wine in Australia’ from 2014 International Wine Challenge.
Sidewood estates has gone from strength to strength is now Adelaide Hills’ largest sustainable winery. The wines have collected many international awards and accolades with the 2015 Mappinga Shiraz getting an incredible 98 points from Decanter!
After a reception glass of the delicious and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc, Darryl will talk us through the history of the winery and winemaking in Adelaide Hills. We’ll taste some of the estate’s finest wines, including the stunning Mappinga Shiraz all of which are shipped exclusively by Davy’s. The tasting is followed by a specially prepared 4-course menu, with a wine paired with each course and Darryl on hand to answer any questions.
