JOIN US FOR THE ANNUAL COGNACING OF THE BARREL BREAKFAST AT THOMAS ALLEN WINES.

 

2018 Cognacing of the Barrel

Join us for breakfast in January to continue our Cognacing of the Barrel tradition.  It was started by Steve and Craig many years ago and involves christening the newest of the oak barrels with a bottle of Cognac to add additional flavour and complexity (ensuring there is a little left over for us!).

Our breakfast begins with a glass of Sparkling on the verandah, overlooking the beautiful Moon Mountain vineyard, followed by a sumptuous two course breakfast from our friends at Il Cacciatore.  Throughout breakfast enjoy a Chardonnay masterclass, our infamous aroma challenge and finish with the Cognacing of the Barrel ceremony.
