Voyager Estate Wine Dinner

We Brisbanites really are being spoilt on the wine front at the moment. Just in case you won lotto on the weekend and are able to attend an unlimited amount of wine events, the next one you'll need a ticket to is the Voyager Estate wine dinner at Vino's on 2 September 2009.

Voyager Estate is one winery that I've been a big fan of over the last 5 years or so. I visited the cellar door in 2003, and was extremely impressed with their wines. Since then, I've been stashing away every release of their cabernet merlot, which has become one of the rising stars from Western Australia. Their chardonnay isn't far behind either.

Cliff Royle, the winemaker responsible for the stellar rise, has recently left, so it will be interesting to see the direction their wines take over the next 5 years or so.

If you want to see what all the fuss is about, Travis Lemm (winemaker) and Steve James (viticulturist) from Voyager Estate will be attending the dinner, to guide you through the wines.

According to Stewarts (who are putting on the event) the night will feature "current release wines and rare back vintages alongside a carefully selected four course degustation menu". Tickets are $110 per person and you'll need to book ahead.
