Dominique Portet Masterclass with Ben Portet
Ninth generation winemaker Dominique Portet, quite simply, is international winemaking royalty. From a winemaking family that stretches back 10 generations in Bordeaux, his father Andre Portet was vineyard and winery manager of Château Lafite Rothschild in Pauillac.
A tenacious search for grapegrowing terroir to rival that of his native Bordeaux led Dominique to the cool climate of the Yarra Valley where he founded his winery in 2000. His son Ben now heads the winemaking team whose own resume boasts time spent with the likes of Bordeaux’s Château Beychevelle, Champagnes Louis Roederer and the Rhone Valleys M. Chapoutier.
Ben joins us this Wednesday, 5 June for what is sure to be an incredible evening of tasting and discussion around both new and old world techniques, traditions and terroirs.
