Australian Wine Dinner

Australian Wine Dinner with Steve Edwards

Thursday 27th June 2024

Australian Wine Dinner
Arrival 7.00pm



Ever since the heady days of the 1980’s when Oddbins were the first to champion the wines of Australia here in the UK with lots of fruit forward Shiraz and easy drinking Chardonnay much has changed, however what has not changed is the Brits love of a “nice bottle” from the sunburnt country and Australian wine is as popular now as it ever was and today the UK is still one of the largest export markets for Australian wines.

Today there are over 60 different designated growing regions in Australia with around 160,000 hectares of vines planted and some of the oldest commercial wineries were established in the 1820’s and 30’s. There are vines grown in every state, however the blazing heat in the desert center and the tropical, humid weather in the north of the country dictate that most wines are produced in the southern, eastern and south western states where the climate is cooler.

The event will be hosted by Operations Director Steve Edwards who is himself a 3rd generation Australian and passionate not only about wines from his native country but has worked with the wine team at Lympstone Manor to develop the wine cellar since the hotel opened in 2017. Steve has chosen a short but very well considered selection of wines to match the fantastic menu that the kitchen has put together inspired by some truly classic Australian cuisine!

The evening will commence at 7.00pm with an arrival drink and canapés, taking seats in the Glass House dining area of the Restaurant for a superb menu designed and prepared by our kitchen team, We look forward to welcoming you to Mickeys Beach!


£80 per person
Three course menu with canapes, arrival drink, coffee petit fours and matching wines.
