Natural Wine is fast growing in popularity within the global wine community and we want to demystify all things natural wine and answer your questions about this alternative to traditional wine. Love it or hate it, it’s on the rise and worth knowing about so you can increase your wine knowledge and understand what it’s all about the next time you spot one on the wine list.
This April, the Fine Wine Group have a Members Special Wine Class event offering you the opportunity to explore, taste and delve into the world of natural wine during a relaxed night with paired cheese at our tasting table with fellow wine lovers.
Natural wine is typically made from handpicked grapes grown by smaller, independent producers using organic or biodynamic techniques to grow the fruit to allow for the purest fruitful flavour possible. The wine is fermented with no added yeast, and there are no additives or sulphites added, so the wine is made with little to no chemical and technological intervention. These natural processes are done to respect the environment and vine by avoiding harmful chemicals and practices, resulting in a unique fresh flavour.
On Wednesday April 10th join Australian winemaker and educator Tom Egan from Jed Wines as he guides you through 8 natural wines. Tom is an engaging facilitator with many years of experience and passion for wine, and we are very fortunate to have him lead this special event for you.

“For the first time in 16 long and too-lonely years I have someone to talk to. Now, I have friends. And a reason to keep going.”
Curtis’ battle with HIV isolated him for too many precious years. However, it was through the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation’s health and well-being program that Curtis was able to reach out and become connected, supported and healthy once again, transforming his life.
Australia’s longest running HIV charity has provided support and refuge to thousands of vulnerable people living with HIV over the last 34 years. It has become their mission to limit the challenging circumstances of such an unrelenting disease. Through providing direct financial and practical assistance, emotional support, financial counselling, housing, and study and employment support, the BGF helps people to find a new sense of hope and assistance to get back on their feet. This not-for-profit organisation ensures people from all walks of life living with HIV are welcomed into an open, safe and inclusive environment, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, religion or sexual orientation. Through responding to the diverging needs of their clientele, the BGF is constantly adapting to the changing face of HIV.
The foundation originated after the death of Bobby Goldsmith, one of the first AIDS related deaths in Australia. Bobby was an active member of the gay community as well as a respected Australian athlete and dearly loved son, brother, partner, friend and uncle. Although it has been 34 years since his death, HIV and the social stigmas attached are still present, despite being a virus that anyone can contract. The BGF are constantly working to reverse the physical and emotional damage inflicted by the unforgiving virus by addressing social isolation and economic poverty to allow for healthy living.
No one should have to face HIV alone. For the month of February during Mardi Gras Festival, we will have a donation tin at the counter to collect donations to this incredible organisation. Want to do more? You can also donate at: http://www.bgf.org.au/donate/give-now/
