With a great love of food, wine and conviviality, Chalmers plan to host more and more events at their Merbein Vineyard. One of the great new features of the Stonnington Tavern is a Tuscan Pizza oven which is set to get a workout. Who doesn’t love pizza and vino? Look out for weekend pizza lunches featuring Chalmers and Montevecchio wines paired with super authentic rustic pizzas by Sicilian pizzaoiolo Rino Anfuso from Pizzeria Divina. Don’t worry, there will always be a bus to and from Mildura so you can enjoy a sip or two in the sunshine.
The Chalmers Merbein Vineyard is home to a collection of over 40 different grape varieties, mostly Italian. From time to time the family throw open the gates and welcome wine industry and enthusiasts alike to come along during vintage and taste their way around the library of grapes for a Flavour Tasting Day. Always an eye-opening event attracting winemakers, growers and hospitality from across the country, Chalmers team it up with a festive lunch for the opportunity to network and discuss the varieties over a few glasses of the wine made from those very grapes.
