Bindi Winemaker Dinner with winemaker Michael Dhillon
Winemaker Michael Dhillon has, over the past 25 years, crafted some of Australia’s most sought after and highly acclaimed wines at his property near Gisborne in Victoria.
With the first vines planted in 1988 Michael’s decades of focus on the Burgundian varietals Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has yielded wines of immense concentration and delicacy. With relatively low volumes released each year and countless fans in the wine trade Bindi is not a wine you see in wine stores every day and only ever on the most respected wine lists in the country.
Erez Gordon, co-owner of Bishop Sessa, has had the privilege of knowing Michael and his wines for the greater part of the last two decades including hands-on experience in the vineyards during harvest. It is therefore an honour to be able to present this rare opportunity to meet Michael, drink some of his wines and be introduced to the new labels in his stable.
If you are a Chardonnay or Pinot Noir fan it is likely you have heard of Bindi as one of the top examples of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Australia alongside such luminaries as Mount Mary and Giaconda, so you will not want to miss out on this splendid event.
Details are yet to be finalised including price, menu and wines but we recommend you declare an interest now to avoid missing out later on what is guaranteed to be a sold out event.
