Wine Dinner at The Whale

Make a note of Friday October 7 in your social calendar to while away an evening with Robert Oatley Vineyards at the Whale Restaurant, Narooma. Michael is preparing a 4 course menu (canapés on arrival, entrée, main and dessert) which will be matched with some of Robert Oatleys finest. The price is $80 per person.

If you are not familiar with Robert Oatley Vineyards it is in the heart of the wonderful winegrowing region of Mudgee in NSW. Robert Oatley himself says his wines are a 'darn good drink' but James Halliday is a little more eloquent in his appraisal, rating it a 5 star winery. On the evening we will have with us Darren Jahn, Communications and Education Manager for the vineyard, and our dear friend Paul Ditter, the manager for the Southern Region, both of whom will lend their expertise to any enquiring minds, or is that palates.

I am sure our chef, Michael Donovan, needs no introduction but just in case I will tell you about him anyway. Mick has been with us just over a year and he has taken us to new gastronomic heights. He started out at the Hyatt in Melbourne where he did his apprenticeship. After that he was sous at the iconic Florentinos when they were awarded a hat. He then moved onto the Melbourne institution, Walters Wine Bar, where he was awarded two hats. Byron Bay beckoned, eventually giving way to a hiatus from restaurants running his own food manufacturing business. Then seeking the quiet life he chose to settle in Narooma to head the humble kitchen at the Whale Restaurant.

Seats are limited so if you don't want to miss out get organised. If you need to travel from afar we will also offer a 15% discount on accommodation because no one should drive after a wine dinner!!!

All the best,

Matt and Jen Deveson
