Paddock to Plate at Pitchfork
The sold-out ‘Celebrate Autumn’ wine lunch at Pitchfork was a highly-anticipated event to kick off 2023 in delicious fashion, as Carlie Wacker discovered.
It was a perfect autumn’s day to enjoy a sumptuous banquet of fine food paired with a selection of unique wines.
Matt, Debs and Ruby Spencer along with Head Chef Hughen Marino and the tightknit Pitchfork team delivered a decadent menu and friendly service that reinforced why Pitchfork Restaurant is so loved by locals and visitors.
Brandt Rainbow of family-owned Domaine Wine Shippers, hand-selected the very best French and Australian wines to match the feast with the story behind every drop expertly explained – and adored!
The Celebrate Autumn lunch was indeed a celebration of paddock-to-plate; grape-to-glass and family, all in a stunning setting. Cheers!
