TarraWarra Estate Digs Deep for the OzHarvest Event in August

Tarrawarra Estate will be donating all matching wines for the OzHarvest annual fundraising dinner on Sunday 2nd August. Hosted at Neil Perry's restaurant Rockpool in Sydney, the six-course tasting menu with matching wines, will see 100% of the proceeds from the $400 per person event donated to OzHarvest, Australia's leading food rescue organisation, allowing them to deliver an additional 88,000 meals to those who need them most.

Combining forces with Diego Munoz, the Head Chef of Astrid y Gaston in Lima Peru, Rockpool's Head Chef, Phil Wood and owner Neil Perry, will create stunning and mouth-watering dishes using the most frequently rescued produce by OzHarvest, such as potatoes, lettuce and apples. Add premium matching wines from the Yarra Valley's Tarrawarra Estate and guests are in for a real treat.

With all proceeds going to charity, Tarrawarra estate couldn't wait to raise their hand and donate the wine for the much anticipated event. Clare Halloran, Tarrawarra Estate's long standing wine maker stated, “when an opportunity arose to give back to the community, we jumped at the chance. And showcasing our wines with some of the world's most esteemed chefs, well, that was just a bonus!”

OzHarvest is the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it, direct and free of charge, to 600 charities providing much needed assistance to vulnerable men, women and children nationally. In addition to matching wines, Tarrawarra Estate will also be donating an exclusive item for auction at the event.

Tickets to the six-course tasting menu with matching wines are $400 per person. Bookings are essential. For more information and bookings contact Rockpool, 11 Bridge Street, Sydney on (02) 9252 1888.
