Pei Modern’s next Paddock to Plate dinner (Thursday 25 February 2016) presents the rare opportunity for winelovers to preview the exclusive William Downie 2015 vintage, months before its official release.
Hosting the dinner alongside Executive Chef Mark Best, winemaker William (Bill) Downie will treat guests to his limited series of pinot noirs in his first ever William Downie winemaker’s dinner outside of Victoria.
The exclusive wines are produced with a natural, non-interventionalist approach and on a small scale, with just three wines in the 2015 vintage and only 500 dozen bottles of each.Bill will share his wines, along with his passion for farming and sustainable living, matched to a six-course menu by Mark Best.
“A red wine lover’s dream come true, this Paddock to Plate dinner offers the extraordinary chance to be the first to taste Bill’s unique William Downie 2015 vintage,” Mark said.
“It’s also a wonderful opportunity to hear Bill’s fascinating methods, experiences and stories firsthand. He is an incredibly purist and down-to-earth winemaker who I respect very much.”
Mark and Bill will be joined by Pei Modern Head Chef, Joachim Borenius (formerly Marque, The Fat Duck and Per Se) to deliver an unforgettable evening.
