Winter Winemaker Series

Elements of Byron are inviting local wine lovers to join them for an unforgettable journey through the world of wine with their Winter Winemaker Series, which they describe as a unique opportunity to delve into the captivating narratives behind some of the most distinguished wineries, with an exquisite exploration of flavours, aromas, and tales straight from the vineyard.

‘Throughout the winter months, we will be hosting a series of intimate winemaker dinners at Azure Bar and Grill, each curated to showcase the distinct character and craftsmanship of renowned Australian and New Zealand wineries. Our lineup promises an exceptional experience for wine enthusiasts and curious connoisseurs alike,’ they say.

‘In June, we kick off the series with Will Gilbert and Nick Spencer, esteemed winemakers whose passion for their craft is matched only by their dedication to quality. Get ready to savour their exceptional creations and hear firsthand the stories behind the bottles.

‘Nick Spencer, an award-winning winemaker with a degree in Oenology from the University of Adelaide, has nearly two decades of experience. His expertise shines in wines from Gundagai, Tumbarumba, and The Hilltops. Recognised by industry accolades, including the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, Nick’s wines are consistently celebrated for their quality and innovation.

‘Will Gilbert, a sixth-generation winemaker from the renowned Gilbert family, honed his craft across Australia and Canada. Since becoming head winemaker in 2016, Will has elevated the Gilbert label with his technical skill and passion. He also launched his own label, Underwood, and created the popular Goose Apple Cider.

‘Partnering seamlessly with the wines, Azure Bar and Grill’s menu, created by Executive Chef Ebony Bakers, focuses on Elements of Byron’s food philosophy, which marries native, local influences with international flavours. Prepare to be tantalised by a symphony of tastes that perfectly complement the richness of the wines.

‘Indulge in a sumptuous four-course meal, expertly curated to highlight the nuances of each wine, to entice your taste buds from the very start. Throughout the evening, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with the winemakers, gaining insights into their winemaking philosophies and the stories behind the labels.

‘Tickets for this extraordinary experience are priced at $165 per person and include four courses with matched wines.’

Thursday 6 June, Nick Spencer & Will Gilbert, from 6 to 9pm at Azure Bar and Grill, Elements of Byron Resort, 144 Bayshore Drive, Byron Bay.
