Vintners Brunch takes you on a tour of top restaurants and caterers, each one pairing a dish to a specific wine from around the world. Chefs and wine personalities share the secrets of their wine and food pairing. Professionals from the food and wine industry will be on hand to choose the winner of the annual Judges’ Choice Award – and you can vote on your favourite pairing for the Peoples’ Choice Award. Once your appetite is sated, hit the dance floor to burn off some calories. This perennial wine and food pairing experience is not to be missed.

The 2020 Judges’ Choice Award went to Notch8 Restaurant & Bar, paired with Culmina Family Estate Winery Unicus (Grüner Veltliner) 2018. See all the 2020 winners here and read head judge Tim Pawsey’s recap of the event.
