This month features a Riesling release from Mitchell Wines from Clare Valley, a winery with a long-standing Rigoni’s tradition. Ever since 1979, Andrew and Jane Mitchell have brought the first bottles of their Watervale Riesling to Rigoni’s for a taste of the vintage, forming a long relationship with the Bistro. This year, whilst still continuing the tradition, Mitchell Wines will be showcasing their 2017 Watervale Riesling and other delicious wines from their vineyard at a special tasting at the City Cellar Door event on May 3rd.
Mitchell Wines is a family owned winery, with two generations growing up on the winery with the third just beginning. Their wines – particularly the Watervale Riesling and the Peppertree Vineyard Shiraz – have always been must-haves at Rigoni’s, and this May 3rd, Hilary, Angus and Edwina Mitchell will be sharing their taste bud tantalizing selection with you – think Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro Grenache, and maybe even a Rosé. The family can’t wait to share a glass with you and your friends, and urge you to mark it in your calendar now!
