Miche­lini’s launch lat­est 2018 wines

Myrtleford Times - - What's On -

MICHE­LINI Wines will launch their 2018 wines at a meet the wine­maker and tast­ing event at their Myrtle­ford win­ery on Fri­day.

New wine­maker Matt Kilby said this year’s vin­tage had been a suc­cess­ful one.

Mr Kilby has over a decade of ex­pe­ri­ence in the wine in­dus­try where he has held wine­mak­ing roles at Do­min­ion Wines, Chateau Tah­bilk, Mitchel­ton, and Zim­mer­mann-Gra­eff and Mueller in Ger­many.

“We’ve had great weather con­di­tions and all fruit came into the win­ery in per­fect shape, the good qual­ity fruit gave a great head start for the win­ery,” he said.

“There is very low dis­ease pres­sure out in the vineyards, it was a low yield and gen­er­ally speak­ing when the yield goes down, the qual­ity goes up so hope­fully the low yield is a pos­i­tive thing for the win­ery.”

Mr Kilby said he had par­tic­u­larly high hopes for the Pinot Gri­gio.

“It’s a la­bel that has done well for us pre­vi­ously and this year’s is go­ing to be an­other step up from those ones, I’m pretty ex­cited about it, I think it will do well,” he said.

“Mer­lot as well, the cli­mate suits it and there’s been some re­ally good stuff com­ing out of the area.”

The pop­u­lar An Choi Viet­namese Street Food will also be avail­able on the night.

Mr Kilby sug­gested the Ver­mentino as the ideal wine to com­pli­ment the Viet­namese food.

“It’s a nice dry sort of cit­rus flavoured (wine) that has a nice cleans­ing ef­fect on the pal­let so if you’re eat­ing spicy food or hot food it’s very good for that,” he said.

The launch will run from 5.30pm to 7.30pm with An Choi Viet­namese Street Food avail­able from 4.30pm to 8pm.

LO­CAL business op­er­a­tors will have the op­por­tu­nity to join Tourism North East for a thought-pro­vok­ing work­shop on the fu­ture of the tourism in­dus­try next week.

The free three-hour work­shop has been suc­cess­fully de­liv­ered to tourism op­er­a­tors for the past four years.

Par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to ques­tion, in­ter­act and en­gage in the lively con­ver­sa­tion sur­round­ing fu­ture trends through­out the pre­sen­ta­tion.

All of the work­shops con­tent is an ab­stract para­phrase of the an­nual brief­ings which are de­liv­ered by Fu­ture Lab, a United King­dom based global ‘trends anal­y­sis’ com­pany.

The group help par­tic­i­pants to un­der­stand whole sys­tem think­ing right down to the nitty gritty of what con­sumers want, how to con­nect with an au­di­ence and how to stay ahead of the curve with a business.

The work­shop will be held on Tues­day, Septem­ber 11 at the Alpine Shire Coun­cil of­fices in Bright from 9.30am un­til 1pm.
