Women in Wine 2015

It is with great pleasure that the Women of the MCC invite all MCC members and their guests to the ninth Women in Wine function on Thursday March 5, 2015.

This year we will be showcasing wines from the De Bortoli Winery in the Yarra Valley.

Leanne De Bortoli, a third generation family member of De Bortoli Wines, will present a range of premium wines. Leanne and her husband, winemaker Steve Webber, run the successful Yarra Valley Winery and restaurant.

The chefs at Epicure have worked with Leanne to match the wines to a range of delicious tasting plates.

Entertaining speakers, wine tastings and delicious food ensure this event always sells out, so please book early.
