The organic and biodynamic winemaking pioneers at Prancing Horse Estate have developed a fantastic new inspiring and ‘enlightening’ wine education series to be held each month for the rest of 2019. And it’s called Sunday School because, let’s face it, wine is pretty close to a religion for many of us.
Sessions are held at the stunning Prancing Horse Estate on Paringa Rd in Red Hill in a spacious, private cottage named The Coterie overlooking rolling vineyards across to Western Port Bay. They run for 90 minutes and are packed with information, wine tastings and nibbles and represent extremely good value for money. While each session has a theme, it is also an opportunity for attendees to ask the experts any burning wine questions they may have.
The Sunday School team includes owner and long-time wine connoisseur Tony Hancy; wine consultant, sommelier and owner of The Recreation in Fitzroy, Mark Protheroe; brand ambassador and WSET Diploma graduate Jane Gordon; and biodynamic viticulturist Shane Strange. The sessions are:
June 9 (Winter Wine Weekend), Burgundy Inspiration — Introduction to Burgundian Wines, $75pp;
July 14 (Bastille Day), Celebrating the Cote de Nuits, $75pp;
August 4, Happy Birthday Horses — The Pony 2018 range release, $50pp;
September 8, Champagne — Celebrating All Styles, $90pp;
October 20, Biodynamics — In the Vineyard and in the Glass, $50pp; and,
November 24, Food and Wine Pairing, $65pp.
