An Evening of di Lusso Estate Museum Wines
I have a limited range of Museum wines, dating back to 2003, that I have decided to offer to Members of di Lussso Estate and their friends in an evening of tastings – with matching food – as a feature of the 2019 Mudgee Wine and Food Month. Museum wines will be offered for sale during the course of the evening.
The format will be based around a six-course menu of Italian regional food favourites.
The famous Venetian dish of thinly sliced beef fillet, seasoned with mayonnaise, horseradish, mustard,
lemon and Worcester sauce.
