Event description: The date has been announced for the 20th anniversary of our annual black tie affair, Strings and Brass in the Winery. The evening features spectacular classical music, gourmet food and a superb selection of Allandale wines. Adam and Ros from Mojo’s on Wilderness Restaurant will once again provide a superb three-course dinner while Paul Goodchild, The Bacchus Sinfonietta and Sydney Brass will entertain us with a program of enchanting classical music. Sadly, the 2016 event will mark the final year for Stings & Brass in the Winery. We hope that you all can make it to farewell Paul and the team and to enjoy another outstanding performance for one last time.
