Taste of South America: Argentinian Wine Tasting
Date: Wednesday 23 July

Venue: Private Dining Room
Price: $27.50

Price includes a formal wine tasting hosted by Jed Winemaker Tom Egan with a selection of Argentinian 'bites'.  

Each year, Jed’s winemaking team travel to the Uco Valley in Argentina to produce wines that express the unique characters of this acclaimed region.

With combined winemaking experience in Australia, France, North and South America, Jed’s three young Australian winemakers have travelled the world’s wine regions in search of ideal vineyard sites.

This search led the trio to the Uco Valley in Mendoza (Argentina), one of the world’s true frontier wine regions. Mendoza has an extraordinary 450 years of winemaking history, however, only in the last 10 years has the Uco Valley emerged as one of the world’s most exciting wine producing regions.

Situated in the foothills of the Andes at 1200 metres above sea level, the pristine environment in the Uco Valley yields elegant wines with unrivalled purity.

This event is fully booked. Please phone Club Reception on 6488 8770 to be placed on the waitlist.


Taste of South America: Empanada! Empanada!
Date: Thursday 24 July 
Time: 5.30pm - 7.00pm
Venue: Case Study Room
Price: $49.00

Price includes a glass of Chilean wine on arrival, empanada demonstration followed by a taste of the empanadas, South American canapes and a glass of Chilean wine to match.  

Empanadas are popular in South American cuisine and although empanadas are most associated with Chile and Argentina, many South American countries have their own versions.

The name comes from the Galician, Portuguese, and Spanish verb ‘Empanar’, meaning to wrap or coat in bread, and are made by folding dough or bread around a stuffing. Like ceviche, empanada ingredients can vary from region to region.

In this demonstration the chefs from Public House will show you how to prepare authentic and delicious empanadas at home.

Presented by the Chefs of Public House
Popular new Perth eatery Public House is like eating at home with your family and friends; food is cooked slowly with love and passion. Their chefs are inspired by a love of South American food, wine, lifestyle and culture and have created food using local produce, showcasing the best WA has to offer with a modern take on South American flavour. We have brought their South American chefs to the Club to give you some tips on making your own traditional South American fare at home.

Fully Booked. Please phone Club Reception on 6488 8770 to be placed on the waitlist.
