Drink, Eat, Melbourne, Restaurants / 18 April 2023

Esteemed chef and restaurateur, Shane Delia, has joined forces with acclaimed winemaker Patrick Sullivan to bring an extraordinary wine and dine experience to Maha North on Smith Street for one night only on 26th April.

At this first-of-its-kind event at Maha North, guests will indulge in a delightful five-course tasting menu, exquisitely crafted by Shane Delia himself, and expertly paired with five exquisite wines handpicked by Patrick Sullivan. Each dish will showcase Shane’s passion for Middle Eastern flavours, while the accompanying wines will express Patrick’s innate understanding of the Gippsland terroir and his dedication to producing wine that remains true to its origin.

The story of Patrick Sullivan Wines is one of passion and perseverance. Patrick, a native of rural Victoria, took his first steps in the world of wine at the tender age of 12, planting vines with his family. After a whirlwind journey through the wine trade in London, Patrick returned to his home soil with a keen eye for the potential that lay within the Baw Baw Shire, particularly for the cultivation of Chardonnay. Establishing Patrick Sullivan Wines in 2010, he has since become one of Australia’s most respected winemakers, revered for his uncompromising approach to quality and his belief in allowing the fruit to speak for itself.

One of the standout wines featured at this special event will be the Bull Swamp Chardonnay, a particular favourite of Shane Delia’s, which captures the essence of Gippsland’s noble red soils and optimal climatic conditions. This sumptuous wine will be but one of the many gems to be discovered during the evening, as guests are immersed in a world of rich flavours and tantalising aromas.

Tickets for this exclusive event are priced at $165 per person, and reservations can be made for the 7pm seating here. Guests will also have the unique opportunity to purchase Patrick’s best-selling varietals on the evening, making this a truly memorable occasion for wine aficionados and gourmands alike.

Do not miss this unparalleled opportunity to delve into the delectable depths of Gippsland’s finest wines and savour the exquisite culinary offerings of Shane Delia, as they join forces for a wine and dine affair that promises to dazzle your senses and elevate your appreciation for the artistry behind great food and wine.
