Yalumba – 27th September

Australian history blends with innovative winemaking

Bistro Blackwood is a quintessential Australian bistro. Jock Zonfrillo invites a roster of his winemaker friends into the Bistro to show off their drops and chat about their practice and philosophy with customers.

Voted South Australia’s Hottest Restaurant of 2018, Bistro Blackwood continues to thrill. This week Jock Zonfrillo has invited Senior Red Winemaker for Yalumba, Kevin Glastonbury, to feature as his Winemaker Waiter.

Kevin brings a unique blend of passion and expertise to his winemaking, and throughout his 30+ year career has been recognised with numerous accolades, such as becoming a Len Evan tutorial scholar, a respected wine judge and Winestate’s “Winemaker of the Year.”

He is committed and passionate about winemaking, and understanding that, like any good relationship, winemaking takes time, effort, trust and flexibility to be successful.

Kevin’s winemaking career started when he left school, and he had had several years of hard work, experimentation and innovation behind him before joining Yalumba in 1999.  As Senior Red Winemaker for Yalumba, his hands-on approach has been the key to his success as an innovative and intuitive winemaker.

Yalumba is Australia’s most historic family-owned winery, boasting five generations and 167 years of history. This iconic brand continues to grow in size and stature and embodies all aspects of the Australian wine success story, making it the envy of winemakers, globally.

A brand this steeped in history holds a respected place in Australian winemaking history, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn more about these delicious wines, from the Senior Red Winemaker.

This week we are featuring Yalumba’s Rousanne, Eden Valley 2016, Block 2 Grenache Rose, Barossa Valley, 2017, Vine Vale Grenache, Barossa Valley, 2016, and the delicious Paradox Shiraz, Northern Barossa, 2015. Marrying Jock Zonfrillos’ exciting dishes with wines crafted by the best, Kevin Glastonbury will pour you a glass while giving insight into his processes, beliefs and passions driving his success. Each wine serves to demonstrate the dedicated commitment to developing the best flavours possible that has cemented Yalumba’s place in Australian Winemaking history.
