On Thursday 29th September 2016 Lutèce and Romain Bapst are welcoming Winemaker Scott McCarthy
Soumah of Yarra Valley, is known that “great wine is made is the vineyard” and we set out to select an exact location that delivered every advantage of a cool climate, undulating topography and ancient soils.
We then wanted to bring some focus to our endeavour.
After being resident overseas for many years, we found the elegance and honesty of Northern Italian wines and food to inspires us. So we found our hidden gem, located down a county lane in the dress circle Warramate foothills of the Yarra Valley. It is from here we set out to make wine with the charm of Northern Italy but the provenance of the majestic Yarra Valley.
Our first vintages attracted many accolades including exclusive Savarro winning consecutive trophies at 2011 and 2012 Federation square showcase as well gathering not less than 14 medals and trophies. As our wines flight expands we will focus on styles from Northern Italy including Pinot Grigio, Ai Fiori Rosata and Nebiolo as well as the eastern French varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Viognier.
Here’s just a taste of what is in store for the night by chef Bapst 4 courses celebrating Return from France: Calamari « supions », snapper carpaccio, smoked sea salt, extra virgin olive oil & lemon sabayon, Yamba prawn with almond milk, blanc mange & crustacean jus & Vacherin of raspberry & coconut, gel of lime
