Limited Availability – Irvine Estate Wine Tasting & Informal Lunch Event


On Thursday, September 21st, Bowcliffe Hall will be holding an intimate and exclusive members-only wine tasting and informal lunch event in association with Bowcliffe’s wine merchant, House of Townend and the Irvine Estate.

Taking place in Bowcliffe’s regal Briefing Room, 16 guests will be offered a unique opportunity to join Rebekah Richardson, a winemaker at the renowned Irvine Estate in Barossa, as she explains more about a select few of the Estate’s most special wines.

Rebekah has taken over from James Irvine, who is arguably one of the greatest Merlot producers in Australia. Irvine’s six vineyards span over 400 acres of the most esteemed Barossa and Eden Valley regions.
