Pierre White was joined by estate residents Owen Andrews (Seppeltsfield events executive chef) and David Swain (FINO Seppeltsfield) to lead a AUD $225-a-head Italian feast as one of the opening events of Tasting Australia.

With details of the event’s menu tightly held ahead of the event, Tasting Australia ambassador and FINO Seppeltsfield Proprietor Sharon Romeo said that guests would be in for an Italian feast of “generosity and authenticity”.

“Our entire kitchen and front of house team are excited to work alongside Marco for this event - he has been an inspiration to so many chefs who have gone on to be culinary legends of their own”, said Ms Romeo. “We feel so thrilled to have him in our home here at Seppeltsfield”, she added.

This event formed just one of a huge number of tantalising opportunities in Tasting Australia’s program, which runs from Sunday 30th April - 7th May. For the first time, in 2017 the event has spread to the state’s regions, with events being held in the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Barossa Valley in addition to the city.

As part of the festival, the Great Wine Voyage was held to celebrate Adelaide, South Australia’s membership to the Great Wine Capitals Global Network. The event invited guests to visit nine of Adelaide’s most vibrant bars, each venue representing one of the world’s Great Wine Capitals and providing blind tastings of international wines alongside some of South Australia’s finest. Guests were challenged to pick the local wine from the international wine, with results revealed at the conclusion of the event.

International guests from the world’s most famous regions including Bordeaux (including the Network’s own Catherine Leparmentier Dayot), Rioja and Napa Valley, participated in the event and were on hand to talk to voyagers about the chosen expressions.
