This one of a kind experience is an ideal way to expand your knowledge and enjoyment of wine in a relaxed, informal and highly entertaining environment.

Pick up new wine skills while you taste:

You’ll learn about wine history, and how some of that has evolved into modern day wine etiquette and traditions.

You’ll learn tips for choosing, serving and tasting wines, and best of all it will all happen in an environment as far removed from a classroom as you can imagine!

It’s an interactive experience, questions are more than welcome, and your host will keep you laughing and learning until the bottles are dry. For those that have some more advanced questions, there will be time to delve into more complex issues during the evening as well.

*It is also possible to tailor the experience, for example, reds only or just sparkling.

Prices start from only $59 per person.

Private Sommelier Paul Manthey

Paul started his wine journey in South Africa when he hit the legal age to drink (although prior to this, Nonna used to feed him thimbles of vino while he watched her cook the old Italian classics!).

He then emigrated to Australia and was fortunate enough to secure a position working under Nick Stock at Epicureans Restaurant where he was given a solid grounding of wine and food. After a stint at Sofitel Brisbane as junior/trainee sommelier he moved to the Byron At Byron Resort and Spa in Byron Bay where he soon became Beverage Manager. Here he honed his skills while being responsible for staff training, hosting Champagne dinners, winemaker dinners, matching wines to quarterly menus and degustation menus as well as keeping the medium to large wine list relevant and exciting. This led to the list being awarded two glasses in the 2012 Gourmet Traveller Wine List Of The Year Awards.

Paul then travelled through France, Italy and Spain for six months, returning to Australia to work for Bouchon Wines And Spirits as the Northern Rivers to Brisbane, Area Sales Manager.

With a desire and passion to work with small ethical producers to create a portfolio that expressed his own tastes and experiences, Paul started his own wine importation and distribution business in 2016, Baumé Fine Wines.

  • Brisbane Wine Tasting – Private Sommelier Dave Cush

Brisbane Wine Tasting – Private Sommelier Dave Cush

Dave’s affinity with wine began in 1995 with a casual job in a wine shop in suburban Brisbane. Before long, the knowledge he was absorbing in this role overtook the interest in his studies at the time and he left his law degree to begin studying the science of growing grapes for winemaking.

While studying Viticulture at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, he met his future wife, Kristen. Kris was studying Wine Science with a view to one day returning to her family farm on the East Coast of Tasmania to make the family’s wines. In mid-2001, Kris and Dave made this a reality, relocating to Spring Vale to construct a winery and commence on-site production of the family’s wines.

Over the next 12 vintages, Kris and Dave produced many award-winning wines and three young boys. In 2013, they decided to embark on a new adventure in their wine careers and relocate to Brisbane. In 2015 they created their own wine business, focussing on private tastings, wine engagement, wine education, wine events as well as wine production and sales. Current production for Cush & Cush Wine Company is 1000 dozen.

Dave loves sharing conversations about wine. He has experienced the wine industry from all angles and shares his deep knowledge in a down-to-earth, practical manner.

We had a late change of chef due to illness, however Kamel stepped up to the plate (pun intended) and delivered an outstanding meal. His pleasant demeanour, on time service and excellent cleaning up meant that the evening was enjoyed by absolutely everyone, especially the hosts. His waiter, Angus, was also excellent and provided unobtrusive and friendly service all night. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommended!

William Poveromo
I still can't believe that a 5 star restaurant dishes was come out from my very own kitchen. Thanks to our Chef, William who cook an exceptional dishes and not to mentioned with my last minute request, he can turned my caviars into special canapes dishes that will hard to forget. Jo-ann who help us last night, also very warm and friendly, make our dinner table looks amazing. Can't thank you enough, and will definitely go for another round when something big coming up. I would highly recommend their service, especially for family with kids like me. I believe you know how hard it is to enjoy a 5 star restaurant with kids, but it won't be a problem anymore since you'll have a master chef at your home.

Jess Allen
Very happy with the chef and staff, food was excellent, service was non invasive. We had canapés for entree and sit down main. If anything we would’ve liked more quantities for the canapés and maybe some bread rolls to go with the main. Overall though everyone was happy. I would definitely recommend Jess and At Your Table.
