French wines were once thought of as the undisputed benchmark for a great wine. Wine makers from all over the world aspired to make wines like the legendary Burgundies and Bordeauxs. Some Australian wineries have managed to achieve that dream.
For the first time El Vino is teaming up with the Dear Sainte Éloise crew to bring you this magnifiqué pre-Australia Day taste off as we pit some of our most iconic Australian wines against France's finest. Let us walk you through some of the most iconic wine regions of France from the gently rolling hills of Burgundy to the steep windy slopes of Northern Rhone and pebbly soils of Chateauneuf du Pape. How will our mythical Wendouree Shiraz weigh against the superstar Syrah of Northern Rhone? Or our most collected Lakes Folly Chardonnay compare to the Grand Crus of Burgundy? Be the first to taste the pre-release 2017 Lakes Folly Chardonnay! Extraordinary Chardonnay from an exceptional vintage. Who will be your favourite? You might be surprised!
Taste 8 iconic wines paired with 5 courses.

Testimonials from previous events:
"Absolutely loved the event last night. Great selection of diverse samples from a single region! It was both surprising and refreshing. Attila made the event too with his stories and anecdotes. He clearly has a wealth of information! Really looking forward to the next one. The Three Kings will be tantalising." Daniel
"Thank you for making tonight not boring!" - Steve
"I have now been to 2 of your wonderful wine dinners – ‘Noir’ and ‘You say Wine, I say Vino’. They were fabulous nights.
Not only are you great hosts but Attila is a great MC and wine expert. Your evenings provide a no-nonsense story behind every wine so we are truly learning something and appreciating the true craft of wine making. I love the line that “This wine will change your life…..” because it is also about understanding the wine maker and the passion behind the wine that makes every wine unique. You are discerning in your selections and I appreciate the effort which you go to in trying to procure the rare wine vintages you provide. I have enjoyed every wine you have selected so far.
Thank you for your fabulous wine evenings. I will absolutely go to more and highly recommend this to anyone who wants a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening. -Sarah"
