    Event description

    CHEF X WINEMAKER LONG LUNCH 
    FIREDOOR X URBAN WINERY SYDNEY

    SUNDAY 24 NOVEMBER | 1 - 4pm 

    Chef Lennox Hastie of Fink’s Group; Firedoor and Head Winemaker Alex Retief of Urban Winery Sydney invite you on an exclusive and intimate journey for our final Chef x Winemaker Long Lunch of 2019.

    Our Chef x Winemaker long lunches are one of Urban Winery Sydney’s signature experiences; each course is inspired by our latest releases alongside our cellar favourites. The A.Retief wine label is made from grapes sourced from cool climate southern NSW regions, including Tumbarumba, The Hilltops and the family’s biodynamic vineyard in Gundagai. The grapes are all trucked in entirely handcrafted by Alex on-site.

    Lennox Hastie’s speciality is cooking with fire, and he’s earned a reputation as one of Australia’s best chefs with that skill. He has worked extensively in restaurants and hotels over the past sixteen years including the award-winning restaurants Le Manoir au Quat Saisons (two Michelin stars), La Maison du Marc Veyrat (three Michelin stars) and Martin Berasategui (three Michelin stars) before opening Firedoor, located in Surry Hills in 2015.

    Our Chef x Winemaker delicious four-course menu will take inspiration of Lennox’s fascination with fire, and the vineyards and winemaking process. Join us to celebrate wines of exceptional quality and beautifully prepared food in Australia’s first true urban winery.
