PRIVATE GUIDED WINE TASTING
Birch has always prided itself on a unique and personal approach to wine pairing. This personal experience has extended and Birch is now offering private guided wine tastings.
Join Renée [our ‘all things wine’ person] for a private wine tasting session that gives you an insight into how a wine is considered and ultimately selected to feature on the Birch wine list.
In a 1-2 hour session you will sample local, regional and/or international wines from the current Birch wine list and also learn what is considered when wines are paired to our dishes as you enjoy a sample of Birch tastes.
The sessions are designed to be best enjoyed by small groups (minimum 2 guests), are undertaken at the restaurant and bookings are essential [limited sessions available each week].
Cost: $120 per person // includes wines and tastes.
For bookings email email@example.com or call 02 4868 1817
