MFWF A Trip to Jura with Jacques Reymond

Event Details

Join a Legendary Chef For a Trip to an Idyllic French Wine Region

Enjoy a five-course dining adventure exploring the elegance and distinctive charms of the savagnin grape variety made in the Jura style by award-winning Mornington Peninsula winery Crittenden Estate. Winemaker Rollo Crittenden will be on hand to discuss the trials and tribulations of the rare and ancient winemaking technique of flor-aging, presenting a range of his current and back-vintage wines.

Authorities as diverse as James Halliday and Jancis Robinson have described these as some of the most exciting white wines being made in Australia today. They’re an enticing drawcard on their own, but the chance to taste them paired with food from Jura native and Victorian culinary legend Jacques Reymond makes this a truly special event not to be missed for lovers of fine food and wine.

Be transported to the wilds of eastern France from the springboard of Victorian terroir, tasting these remarkable wines alongside benchmark examples of their French cousins in a lively and delicious feast.
