Calabria Family Wines is celebrating a revamp of its cellar door, which includes a suite of tasting experiences, a winery museum and a unique sensory wall.
The food offering features an extensive selection of Italian-style shared plates and a seasonal shared menu designed by the venue’s new chef Amanda Fuller.
“This has been a huge undertaking by the cellar door team and one that will be a great addition to the region,” said Calabria Family Wines Sales & Marketing Director Andrew Calabria.
“While there are still traditional wine-tasting experiences to guide you through our portfolio of wines, we feel the best way to get to know all about the Calabrias is by taking a seat at the tasting bar and enjoying a selection of Italianesque menu items alongside our delicious wines.”
“Food is an essential part of the wine experience, and I’ve worked with the Calabria family to best more. showcase their Southern Italian heritage and the incredible local produce we have available in the Riverina,” Fuller said.
“The new space and food experience will be a welcome addition to the exciting food scene here in Griffith.”
In addition to the menu offering, Calabria Family Wines has added an array of new immersive experiences and tasting sessions for guests to enjoy.
An interactive Sensory Wall has been built on site, which aims to showcase the aromas that inspire the Calabria family’s wines, the family’s homeplace in Griffith and the iconic varieties of the Riverina region.
Utilising a system of hand-blown glass decanters and aroma pumps, the team have carefully curated a selection of aromas to give visitors a scent-driven, self-guided experience in the cellar door.
The new wine tasting menu includes the Discover & Taste flight, the Sorseggia e Assaggia (Sip & Taste) Italian tasting, Riverina Signature Flight self-guided experiences and the Icons of the Riverina Bill Calabria & Three Bridges Durif vertical tasting hosted by Bill Calabria AM himself.
Each tasting will be guided or introduced by a host from Calabria Family Wines and includes a selection of grazing plates, platters and wines that best showcase the breadth and quality of the family winery’s portfolio.
