Following on from last year’s Cellar Door at Sea, Clare Valley’s Taylors Wines will continue its summer celebration of perfectly chilled reds with the unveiling of the Summer House of Shiraz. The Summer House will open its doors (and private jetty) from December 7-8, as the family-owned winery transforms a stunning Point Piper abode into an exclusive summer backdrop for temperature themed red wine tastings.
From Pinot Noir, to Tempranillo, through to glorious Shiraz – the Summer House is the hottest spot in Sydney to chill with a glass of red. Going beyond just another wine pop-up, the Summer House of Shiraz will challenge the notion that red wines are only for cozy winter nights indoors, but can actually be a refreshing drop all year round through the importance of serving temperature.
The Summer House Chef and 2015 My Kitchen Rules winner Will Stewart will be preparing a selection of matched summer dishes to accompany a selection of Taylors award-winning reds. This will be done in an open kitchen format, with the cheeky pommie celeb-chef saying he “welcomes Sydney-siders into one very cool summer house for the most eye-opening wine experience of the year”.
Guests will be transferred by private water taxi from Rose Bay to the secret Point Piper location to take part in the unique temperature led pairings. Once ashore, the 90-minute immersive experience will commence as guests explore the various red varieties on show and their ideal serving temperatures. After selecting their favourite red from the menu, guests of the Summer House will have time to relax, dip their feet in the pool, play a game of bocce on the waterfront lawn or simply relax and soak in the start of summer on Sydney Harbour.
