Bombak Distillery is a family-owned & run distillery located in Osborne Park, Western Australia. Our location is traced back to our immigrant Croatian Great Grandfather who set up market gardens on the land in 1946. The land was worked by three generations including our father and is again being used by the fourth generation to handcraft spirits. Nick has a passion for creating contemporary style gins focusing on using Western Australian natives and fresh WA ingredients to produce truly unique flavours. Nick is an Environmental Scientist by trade; holds a Bachelor of Science and qualifications from the Institute of Brewing & Distilling.
This is a complementary tasting in the Loft that runs from 4pm - 5.30pm on Saturday, May 14th.
On Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of May, our host Cicero Salvador will take us through an informal complimentary tasting of wines that come from Italy's most recognised wine region, Piemonte.
We're featuring three much-loved grape varieties found in the region's rolling hills; Barbera, Dolcetto and Langhe Nebbiolo.
- Trediberri ‘Dogliani Bricco Mollea’ Dolcetto DOCG 2019
- Giovanni Rosso Barbera d’Alba ‘Donna Margherita’ DOC 2018
- Vietti Nebbiolo ‘Perbacco’ Langhe DOC 2019
If you’re a red wine lover, Langhe Nebbiolo has a lot to offer. From its complex palate and refined texture to its beautiful array of red fruit and floral notes, this wine is a great alternative to the more expensive Barolos and Barbarescos! Langhe Nebbiolo is often seen as the younger sibling of the more sophisticated Barolos and Barbarescos. And while the wines have similar floral aromas and red fruit flavours, they differ in a few ways. This weekend we have 3 benchmark Langhe Nebbiolos to taste:
- Bruno Rocca Langhe Nebbiolo
- Josetta Saffirio Langhe Nebbiolo
- Massolino Langhe Nebbiolo
