Winemakers dinner @ Falls Creek

August 7, 2014 Ski No Comments Email Email

Longview Winery winemaker Peter Saturno is heading to a much higher elevation than his vineyard in the picture-postcard Adelaide Hills when he showcases his wines at elk Restaurant in the heart of Falls Creek Alpine Resort on August 27.

From 400 metres above sea level to a lofty 1585 metres above sea level to take part in a five-course winemakers dinner is a significant journey from the South Eastern Ridge of the Mt Lofty Ranges.

Longview Vineyard 3

Whilst the alpine resort is known for its snow-covered slopes (and quality apres ski establishments) it does not have a vineyard.

The restaurateur owner of elk Barry Iddles (who relocates from Sorrento each winter) has invited the award-winning cool-climate winery to pair its red and white wines with an array of dishes prepared by the chefs at the popular restaurant.

Participants in the winemaker dinner will encounter interesting outcomes from the efforts of two brothers who relocated from New York to their native South Australia.

Longview wines are all from a single estate and therefore much of the work to provide depth and character is completed in the vineyard. Each block is serviced differently, in order to build complex flavour profiles which are then fermented separately and blended to make the wine of any one vintage.

Five- course Longview Wines dinner $80 including wines 2012 w.wagtail brut served on arrival light canape of parmesan gougeres filled w a lime scented waldorf salad.
