Wednesday 8th August
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
McLeish Estate is nestled in the heart of the Lower Hunter Valley in Pokolbin. The winery boasts 11 hectares of vineyards that produce many Gold and Trophy Award winning wines. The privately owned, family run winery only sells their wines through their wine club and cellar door or to restaurants and bars directly. You will not find McLeish wines in any bottle shop.
Bob and Maryanne McLeish established McLeish Estate in 1985 and in 1995 they opened a cellar door. Daughter Jessica, second-generation of the McLeish family will host the Winemakers Dinner.
Jessica and the Indigo kitchen team have worked to prepare a 5 Course Menu with matched McLeish wines. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy the McLeish Estate Wines and meet the winemaker.
