Cheese Matching & Rosé at Milk the Cow – April 10, 2016

, ,

Rosé & Cheese Matching Event

Our rosé & cheese matching event at Milk the Cow Licensed Fromagerie was on and we had a full house again.

It was sold out within 2 days of announcing this event and this is just from facebook.

This event is our second most popular event.

I have noticed that our guests who attend our rosé events are so excited to try new things and I love to see such enthusiasm.

Please note that all our wine comes from Top Australian Wines Pty Ltd and any wine from our events can be purchased online here.

I am sure that it will continue to be a popular event for a few years still.

Rosé being showcased at the event

  1. 2014 Bertani Bertarose Chiaretto Veneto Rosé IGT (Veneto, Italy)
  2. 2014 Sirocco Vinde Pays D’Oc Rosé (France)
  3. 2015 Brown Magpie Rosé (Geelong, VIC)
  4. 2015 Soumah Ai Fiori (Yarra Valley, VIC)
  5. 2015 Rogers & Rufus Grenache Rosé (Barossa)
  6. 2015 Hentley Farm Rosé (Barossa)

The French rosé was the most popular wine of the day and great value for money as well.

These six wines were matched with 6 different cheeses selected by cheesemonger Laura Lown.

Laura Lown the cheesemonger amazes people with her selection and quality of cheese and has the most interesting stories about them all.

If you haven’t tried the cheese at Milk the Cow then you are missing out.

We plan many more rosé events and we anticipate rosé will be massive in terms of popularity & demand for 2016 & 2017.

From September 2016, it will be rosé all the way with Wine Tasting Events.

Below are the photos from the event – as you can see lots of smiling faces.

Thank-you to all the Wine Tasting Events staff, Laura Lown, Bela Rice and all the wonderful attendees who made this event a very special and memorable one.

Until the next event at Milk the Cow Carlton which will be a Pinot Noir & Cheese Matching event.

Event Video: Pinot Yum Cha Lunch at David’s Restaurant (Short Version)

Shiraz Heaven Wine Tasting Lunch at The Leveson Hotel – June 1, 2014


What happens when two perfect settings collide? You enjoy one of the best wine lunches you’ve ever had.

Heathcote wines originate in a unique micro-climate setting which produces Shiraz styles with power, elegance, and voluptuous fruit flavour.

And on Sunday, June 1st, you can enjoy glass after glass (10 in all!) of these critically-acclaimed wines in the setting of a modern and charming Australian pub.

Extraordinary tastes throughout your day — from the food to the wine to the atmosphere!

What’s better than being greeted with a hug or handshake? How about a glass of 2007 Barnadown Run Sparkling Shiraz upon arrival!

Pass around plates of antipasto including a selection of house made dips, preserved meats, kalamata olives, grilled vegetables, and Danish fetta.

Wash it down with a glass of 2010 Mcivor Estate Sangiovese

You must experience this dish at least once in your life! The Leveson’s own filo and dukkah-wrapped lamb fillet on a bed of humus with a pomegranate drizzle.

Now you have three luscious Heathcote wines to savor:
2012 Meehan Shiraz

2012 Bull Lane Shiraz

2012 Condie Kyneton Road Shiraz

Now, for the stars of the show:

Kangaroo fillet (yes, kangaroo!) With sweet potato mash, broccolini and juniper berry jus

Enjoy this memorable dish with three more wines — all distinct, all extraordinary!
2012 Tellurian Pastiche Shiraz

2010 St Michaels Reserve Shiraz

2008 Downing Estate Shiraz

Next, you’ll want to give this dish a standing ovation — on appearance and taste: eye fillet medallion on a bed of mushy peas with baby carrots and parsnip crisps served with garlic and thyme butter — every bite better than the last.

Your wine lunch concludes with a grand finale — three more of our most popular Heathcote wines:

2012 Paul Osicka Shiraz

2010 Wanted Man White Label Single Vineyard Shiraz

2004 Barnadown Run Henry Bennett’s Voluptuary

How close have you been to heaven? After this wine tasting featuring the best of Heathcote Shiraz Heaven and The Leveson Hotel, you’ll come closer than ever before.

The first of June can be one of your greatest meals and experiences —but only if you reserve your table now!
