Sunday 5 February [Kid Curry, BNE]
Skins, snacks and vigneron tales.
See below for tickets, group booking and dietary requirement info.
On Sunday the 5th of February, The Fruitful Pursuit returns to East Street, Fortitude Valley, for an afternoon of skin-contact delights and spicy snacks with three of Australia's most established orange wine growers.
Australian orange (or amber) wine has truly come into its own in recent years. The style is no longer solely a trophy of the natural wine movement—though we still believe it is through the most mindful approaches to viticulture that the best examples are made.
Our first iteration of 'Tangerine Dreams' draws upon a national selection of vigneron: Wayne Ahrens and Suzi Hilder of Smallfry Wines (Vine Vale, SA), Bryan Martin of Ravensworth (Murrumbateman, NSW) and Paul Hoffman of Swan Valley Wines (Swan Valley, WA).
For this informative, sensory deep-dive, we are thrilled to realign with the Happy Boy + Snack Man family at their latest den of delectables, Kid Curry, under the guidance of Chef Tom Swapp. Expect flavourful dishes from a variety of Asian influences, that will both heighten and broaden your appreciation for this ancient style of winemaking.
Two hours of tales.
Twelve new and museum release wines.
Four paired courses by Kid Curry.
Fifty-five seats, only.

This is a 'big table' event.
Whether you book for one, two or in small groups, you will likely be gathered together with other wine lovers on larger tables, to share in the experience as a community.
