It is no coincidence that the word for the love of wine, “oenophilia”, is derived from the Greek language. Being of Greek heritage and loving wine, is why Nick & Virginia Tzimas and their dedicated team at The Golden Ox are excited to invite you to join them on the evening of Friday, 9 March 2018 for a fantastic five course food and wine degustation dinner.
The delectable menu has been cleverly created by Head Chef, Peter Tzimas and his kitchen team, working together with Grant Walker from Accolade Wines to perfectly pair each dining course with wines from the Stonier, St Hallett and Grant Burge vineyards.
With many years in the wine industry, Grant is well placed to briefly talk through the wines matched to each dish as it is served.
