Welcoming a legendary Barossa winemaker to Wiston...
Winemaker Dinner: Torbreck & Wiston
February 17 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
We are very excited to share that we will have the winemaker of Barossa Vineyard Torbreck, Ian Hongell, joining us on 17th February for a special dinner at Chalk. Torbreck is home to some of the oldest surviving vines on the planet – celebrating Rhône grape varieties. You may have already enjoyed some Torbreck wines at Chalk where we list it on our wine list, and we can’t wait to have Ian with us talking us through some of their wines.
The Chalk Team have curated the below menu which will be matched to a selection of Torbreck and Wiston wines. Price includes four courses each paired with a glass of wine and service.

Really enjoyable wine tour and tasting as part of a few days in the area. Our guide was an excellent guide and really brought the whole process to life when explaining what Wiston do and how they produce their excellent wines. We sampled a number of different styles and got to understand what makes each unique. It also seems a real family affair and labour of love for all involved. I would highly recommend a visit if in the area, and tag on lunch/dinner in their delightful restaurant if possible. July 2022.
An absolutely fantastic tour! Our tour guide had so much passion and energy that really came through whilst talking to us all. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment! And the wines......... WOW..... We are officially blown away by them! July 2022.
Delicious lunch followed by fascinating tour of the winery and tasting. Our guide brought the whole story of Wiston alive and was so knowledgeable and entertaining. The tasting was the icing on the cake. A perfect way to spend a summer Saturday afternoon. July 2022.
