On Friday 17th July, the highly acclaimed fine-dining Indian restaurant, The Cinnamon Club, is hosting an intimate wine and spice evening with Yalumba, Australia’s oldest family owned winery.

With a menu designed by Head Chef Hari Nagaraj alongside wine buyer Laurent Chaniac and Yalumba’s passionate winemaker Jane Ferrari, guests can enjoy five courses, each individually paired with some of Yalumba’s finest wines. A unique evening where guests can discover the history and culture behind not only The Cinnamon Club’s dishes, but also one of the most respected wineries in the world. Founded by the Smith family in 1849, Yalumba (aboriginal for ‘all the land around’) is steeped in heritage, fiercely independent and extremely progressive with a reputation for innovation. Complementing the Cinnamon Club’s own ethos of pushing boundary’s, this meeting of culinary forces promises to create an evening of enlightenment.
