Don’t let the name fool you! Bastardo Rosé is named after the grape from which it’s made; a Portuguese variety called Bastardo traditionally used to make Port.
Mazza Wines is a family-run vineyard located near Donnybrook and is owned and run by David and Anne Mazza, who are extremely passionate about the varieties they have chosen to grow.

Home to more than 40 whisky distilleries, Australia is starting to become increasingly recognised internationally as a whisky producing nation. Our homegrown distillers are producing whiskies that speak more of place and region, rather than attempting to mimic styles of the world, and this individual and free-flowing approach is being embraced world-over.
For this special masterclass we’ve teamed up with Whisky specialist Mitch Gurrin, (Drinks World Top 100 bartenders in 2018 and 2019), to showcase what we think are great examples of Australian Whiskies. This delicious line-up will be paired with different styles of cheese, all of which playfully compliment these unique Whisky profiles.
Mitch, with over a decade working in the industry and for some of the most awarded Australian distilleries, will be our host for the evening. He’ll lead you through a selection of 5 Australian Whiskies, which will be enhanced with our carefully selected cheese range.
Whiskies being poured:
Archie Rose White Rye
Starwood Nova Single Malt
Whipper Snapper Upshot
Gospel Straight Rye
