Join Halliday and Australian wine luminaries for exclusive pinot noir dinners in Melbourne and Sydney.

Join James Halliday in Melbourne for an exclusive evening of pinot, fine food and conversation.

Halliday is teaming up with acclaimed winemakers Viv Thomson and Reg Egan, and award-winning sommelier Lak Quach for an intimate tasting of rare Australian and imported pinots over a three-course dinner.

This is your chance to sample 12 top-rated wines from Best’s, Mount Mary, Wantirna Estate, Punt Road, Curly Flat and Burn Cottage, as well as acclaimed international labels, such as Domaine De Bellene and Huber, plus a blind tasting of a hard-to-find back vintage.
