Meet the Makers Series “Tellurian Wines Heathcote” & Romain’s Moroccan Dinner

 On Thursday, 20th April 2017  at 6.30pm for 7pm

Romain & Lutèce Chef de Cuisine Qian Cao are matching “Tellurian Wines Heathcote” with the first Moroccan dinner held at Lutèce.

Tellurian Wines Heathcote was established in 2002 by Ian Hopkins with the purchase of a parcel of farming land on the western slopes of the Mt Camel range, overlooking the township of Toolleen. The original Tellurian vineyard was planted to Shiraz that year, with further Shiraz plantings in 2003, 2006 and alternate varietal plantings in 2011 and 2012.

In 2006 Winemaker Tobias Ansted and viticultural consultant Tim Brown joined Tellurian in preparation for the first vintage, which produced the 2008 Tellurian Heathcote Shiraz. In 2009 the first Pastiche Shiraz was introduced, combining fruit from both our Tranter Rd Vineyard, and the Tuohey family vineyard on the eastern side of the Mt Camel Range.

Tellurian meaning ‘of the earth’ reflects our deep respect for the unique character of Heathcote’s famed red soils and a desire to simply express the essence of our vineyards in hand crafted wines including shiraz and alternate varieties that are perfectly suited to our climate and lifestyle
