Portugal & the Wines of Quinta da Pedra Alta




Wednesday, 26th May


6.00 pm - 7.45 pm

An evening with the Winemaker!

On Wednesday, May the 26th we are honoured to be joined by international winemaker and guest, Matt Gant of Portugal’s Quinta da Pedra Alta. Quinta da Pedra Alta’s vineyards are located on the steep slopes of Portugal’s Douro region. They only grow indigenous and traditional Douro grapes, producing a range of still wines and ports that are considered the most faithful interpretation of the land.

This one-time-only masterclass features a carefully selected list of Quinta da Pedra Alta’s wines, led by winemaker Matt Gant and paired alongside a tasty, Portuguese-inspired menu, prepared by our team of chefs.

Matt is the consultant winemaker for, and co-director of, Quinta da Pedra Alta. With 25 years of winemaking experience around the world, his escapades have taken him far and wide within Australia, New Zealand, the US, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

When Matt first visited the Douro in 2007 he was totally blown away by the landscape and the opportunities that this region presented for creative winemaking. Today he is as inspired by the region as ever.

During this masterclass Matt will present some truly magical wines from this unique estate and give you an insight into one of the great wine regions of the world.
