Melbourne Cup Lunch – 5 November

We’d love to host your Melbourne Cup festivities this year, with fantastic food and drink options that will celebrate the ‘Race that stops the nation’ in perfect gastronomic style.

This year, we are excited to introduce our guests to the Champagne House of Bonnaire.

Or, add a drinks package for an extra $55 per head, which includes selected sparkling wine, wine and beer served from your arrival until the Melbourne Cup race has been run.

Or, select our ‘Get To Know Bonnaire’ offer of lunch as mentioned above plus we will keep you topped up with Champagne Bonnaire from your arrival until the race has been run for $145 per head.

If you have not yet had the pleasure of being introduced to Champagne Bonnaire, here’s what Richard Juhlin of 4000 Champagnes had to say about it…

“Bonnaire makes textbook Cramant for the sensualist. My private cellar is full of Bonnaire.”

Located in Cramant in the Côte de Blancs to the south of Epernay the Bonnaire family own some of the very best sites of Cramant making a range of beautifully precise blanc de blanc and Chardonnay predominant Champagnes. Bonnaire

use only their own estate-grown fruit from 100% Grand cru rated vineyards in Cramant and Cuis and Oiry together with small holdings in the Marne Valley and Bergeres-les-Vertus for a little Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier to craft their small range of crystalline pure champagnes.

Gourmet Traveller WINE ‘Wine List of the Year Awards’

Annata’s wine list received the highest ‘wine glass’ rating at last night’s Gourmet Traveller WINE ‘Wine List of the Year Awards’. In giving Annata this accolade, the judges said our wine list:

“Pushes the boundaries by exploring a wide range of avant grade producers from all corners of the world. Sustainability and minimal intervention are key issues in this challenging offering. The list by the glass offers a way into the collection for those unfamiliar with what’s on offer.”

Christian Blair, our wine list curator, has a keen interest in uncovering quality gems from around the world, to keep our offer fresh and interesting.

So, pull a seat up at the bar, peruse our wine list or have Christian and his team suggest something new to try. We also have delicious bites you can enjoy with your wine. Find your new favourite!
