Cooking With Koonara

Cooking With Koonara

It’s no secret we like to cook, so when we were approached by Gavin from Another Food blogger fame to collaborate on a recipe we jumped at the chance. 

Gavin created for us something that is so well paired with our two premium Family Reserve Red Wines, that we couldn’t help but be excited. So get yourself to the grocery store because you are going to want to make these Red Wine and Chocolate Braised Lamb Shanks. They are absolutely delicious and are a perfect match for the cold Winter days now upon us.

AGED DELIGHTS & ARGENTINIAN ALFAJORES

In Argentina, alfajores are usually enjoyed with family and friends gathered around the table sharing tea. Our take on this is opening up and sharing with you bottles of wine from days gone by. These back vintage wines will be hand selected by owners, Dru & Nicole Reschke, ready for you to enjoy in our relaxed and comfortable cellar door. You will be able to taste our aged wines accompanied by an Argentinian Alfajore from our friends at Argentinian Delights.

DATE Month of July
TIME Daily from 10.00am – 4.00pm
COST Wine tasting and an Alfajore $12.00 per person (until sold out)
