Australia produces a stunning range of wines from hundreds of different grape varieties in different regions, including bold and sun-drenched red Cabernet Sauvignon and honeyed and fruity whites such as Riesling and Viognier, all showing world-class quality in the glass.
 
Katnook Estate lies in the heart of the fabled Coonawarra region in South Australia and is home to one of Australia’s finest terra rossa vineyards. With a history dating back to 1896, Katnook’s award-winning winesreflect the essence of Coonawarra’s terroir, displaying subtlety, intrigue and complexity.
 
Deakin Estate’s family owned vineyards are in north west Victoria. Here the Murray River weaves across the land, with rich, fertile soils and a warm sunny climate, giving a unique taste to these delicious wines. 
 
On this special evening, guests will be met at The Twenty Six with a glass of sparkling wine before sitting down to dinner. Each course, cooked by Australian Head Chef Megs Buchanan, will be paired with a glass of wine from either Katnook Estate or Deakin Winery.
 
£60 per person, including paired wines. To reserve please email jenny@illbemother.co.uk
