Stunning food and wine event from Byron at Byron

Stunning food and wine event from Byron at Byron

On Wednesday April 29 The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa welcomes Andrew Hardy, Chief Winemaker from leading South Australian winery Petaluma for a very special celebratory dinner.

Five of Petaluma’s finest wines will compliment four courses from The Byron at Byron’s Head Chef Gavin Hughes.

Andrew commenced his winemaking career at Petaluma in 1982, working with founder Brian Croser before moving to work vintages in Oregon and Bordeaux. He settled at Knappstein for almost a decade where he was awarded the Warren Winiarski Trophy for the Best Australian Red Wine. In 2004 he returned to Petaluma where he has relished in his role as “Custodian of the vineyards”.

Petaluma’s success is based upon planting the right varieties for individual vineyards in regions where the varietals excel. The Yellow Label has garnered significant acclaim for riesling from the Clare Valley, sparkling from the Picadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills, shiraz from Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills and cabernet from Coonawarra.

“This will be anything but a boring wine dinner” said Gavin Hughes. “Andrew is a fascinating and genuinely charming fellow and we plan to have a little bit of banter throughout the evening. Guests are welcome to join in. Food and wine are everything, so when a special person such as Andrew comes along we are excited to share him with our local guests and friends.

“The menu to me is all of the things I like in Autumn and as always the meal will pay homage to our local growers and producers. Whilst there are five different wines we would like you to try, if guests prefer to stay with a particular wine that’s okay too.”

7:00pm Wednesday April 29. $130 per person. Or stay overnight for $499 for two people including two Wine Dinner tickets and full buffet breakfast. Bookings are essential please contact 02 6639 2105 or reservations@thebyronatbyron.com.au

Byron at Byron presents

Byron at Byron presents

Dr Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan

Inject some adrenalin into your life.

The Byron at Byron is thrilled to present extreme health experts Dr. Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan for a night of mind-blowing inspiration.

This husband and wife team has set three World Records in extreme sport, including the world’s highest BASEjump in a wingsuit over the Himalayas. The achievement is made even more remarkable by the fact that Heather was a corporate executive who was afraid of heights.  Over six years she trained with Glenn to become physically fit, mentally focused and emotionally tough enough to climb a Himalayan mountain and fly off the top.

“Heather’s transformation was inspirational,” said Glenn. “She had never planned to climb anything higher than the corporate ladder but by overcoming her fears she attained much more than she ever imagined possible”.

By changing her diet and exercise regime she changed her body fat content and became physically strong. Through techniques like meditation and visualization she overcame her fears and by joining Glenn on a ‘Vision Quest’ their relationship “was deepened and enriched beyond measure”.

Accompanied by spectacular photos and videos, Heather and Glenn will share their story and their process at the Byron at Byron.

Dr. Glenn Singleman is a world famous professional adventurer, expedition doctor and award winning documentary filmmaker. He has accompanied expeditions to Antarctica, the North West Passage, the Himalaya and the Andes. He was a part of James Cameron’s recent expedition to the deepest part of the ocean; the Marianas Trench and has accompanied the Hollywood director on expeditions to the Titanic and the hydrothermal vents. His own films have won 25 international awards and been seen by hundreds of millions of people. He has twice been named as one of the ‘Top 5 Presenters in Australia’ and is a popular media commentator on extreme sport, fear and managing risk.

Heather is an award-winning author of two non-fiction books and freelance photojournalist. Before her radical career change she was a corporate executive managing International and Australian businesses. She has received a ‘Spirit of Adventure Award’ from Australian Geographic and has presented to hundreds of audiences around the world.

Heather and Glenn have been married for 18 years and together have four children. They have appeared twice on Australian Story as well as 60 Minutes, A Current Affair, 7:30 Report, Sunrise, HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, Revealed and Wide World of Sports (to name a few).

Join them as they share their recipe for being brave, being healthy and having a great relationship. Hear how you too can tap into the wilder side of life over some intriguing menu choices that will match the flavour of the evening.

“We are so excited to bring two great Australian adventurers as a part of our Byron at Byron Presents series” said General Manager of The Byron at Byron Lyn Parché. “We kicked off this series with the irrepressible Bettina Arndt, and haven’t looked back. Australia has so many creative people to inspire us along our journeys. We are lucky we live in such a beautiful place so that we can entice them here to share their stories”.

Thursday July 10, 7:00pm.

$70 including two courses and a glass of wine.

Bookings are essential. Please contact 02 66392105 or reservations@thebyronatbyron.com.au

She toured with Angus and Julia Stone on their recent national tour and has played at the last two Splendour in the Grass music and arts festivals.
