The region of Saint-Emilion has a winemaking history that dates back to the 4th Century AD. Chateau Cheval Blanc has been growing grapes to make exceptional wines since at least the 15th Century. Cheval Blanc obtained its first medal at the 1862 Universal Exhibition in London. In fact, a representation of this bronze medal is found on the château’s present-day label. Cheval Blanc won their first gold medal at the 1878 Universal Exhibition in Paris. In 1886, Cheval Blanc won a second gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in Antwerp. Reflecting this series of successes and a wine well on the way to achieving international recognition, a château was built on the estate.
Cheval Blanc was able to realise its greatest dream in the 1880s, when it began to be considered on a par with the first growths of the Médoc – and one of the most dependably fine wines in the world – by the wine trade and connoisseurs. Thus, in the latter half of the 19th century, Cheval Blanc was in the same price bracket as Margaux, Latour, Lafite, and Haut-Brion in Paris and London auction houses. The wine’s reputation earned it a place at prestigious meals, major receptions, and state dinners.
Seats are limited to only 12, as the Chateau has requested a small, intimate event for this one event, and several of the wines we will be tasting are in VERY short supply. Get in quick to secure your seats.
Dinner will be held at The Gidley, on the corner of King and Elizabeth streets, Sydney CBD. The Norfolk Room, their private dining space, can be found hidden at the back of The Gidley. This private space is the perfect environment in which to enjoy some of the best wines in the world, matched to world-class fare.
