More on Keith Tulloch after the jump.

Keith Tulloch, a fourth generation winemaker, is recognized throughout the world as one of Australia’s leading vintners. He is most famous for his crisp, dry Semillon and richly perfumed Viognier, which many maintain are Australia’s most distinct white wines. Not to be outdone by the acclaim of his whites, Tulloch also makes delicious reds. His Hunter Valley Shiraz is noted for its alluring fruit and spice characters and a rich, lingering finish. The dinner will also include Tulloch’s version of Sauterne, a delicious dessert wine made from late harvest Semillon grapes.
