May saw winemaker Vanya Cullen travelling around Australia hosting a number of exclusive Family and Friend events as she introduced the latest release 2015 flagships, the Diana Madeline and the Kevin John. The sold out events gave guests the opportunity try the new releases and chat with Vanya about the 2015 vintage.
After kicking off the first dinner at Bib & Tucker in Fremantle in WA, Vanya headed to Brisbane where the Cullen New Release Dinner was held at Blackbird Bar & Grill, overlooking the Brisbane River, and highlighting chef Jake Nicolson’s menu.
Following that were two very special events in Sydney; a private dinner in the Boardroom at the Sydney Hyatt and an exclusive event at Quay. Guests at Quay enjoyed spectacular views over the harbour while dining on a menu that included Murray Cod, Roasted Duck and Arkady Lamb.
Finally, Vanya hosted two dinners at Andrew McConnell’s Cutler & Co. Andrew’s specially designed menu treated guests to WA marron with the 2015 Kevin John and dry aged duck breast with the exquisite 2015 Diana Madeline.
