Seneca is the project of wine enthusiast Stu Richardson and his friend, vigneron Will Shelmerdine. While only four vintages young, the vineyards from where the fruit is sourced average in age from 21 to 25 years and are nestled on the banks of the Goulburn River in the Nagambie Lake sub-region of the Goulburn Valley . The portfolio's focus is Riesling, Graciano and Cabernet Sauvignon with a goal to creating small batch, handcrafted wines of the highest quality.

Mac Forbes has become one of the great champions of sub-regional site expressions. Since cutting his vinous teeth at Mount Mary in the early 2000’s, Mac has worked tirelessly to map each micro-climate and what each individual expression has to offer. The Portfolio focuses primarily on Pinot, Chardonnay & a Cabernet in the Yarra Valley and Riesling in all its Germanic guises from the Strathbogie Ranges He is of the firm belief that the focus on sub-regionality will unlock a greater future for the Valley much in the same way that specifity applies to the Old World.
Mac's name pops up regularly when we are travelling to international wine regions and is testament to the high regard in which he is held. On the night we will be looking at past and current vintages offering a rare opportunity to talk with of one of Victoria's real wine talents.
Join Mac Forbes for an intimate dinner paring his wines with the seafood of Bacash and chatting all things Terroir!
‘Choosing the right sea creatures is three- quarters of the battle and, for longer than I care to remember, Bacash has had the best fish in his fridge.’– John Lethlean
