It's not always about Barolo, you know, it's also about the wines of Barbaresco, which sometimes live in the shadow of Barolo, but should be celebrated for their difference, fragrance and finesse. And equal quality. For 25 years the new release wines of Barbaresco have been celebrated at the Barbaresco a tavola in Piedmont, so the idea here, is to have a local celebration, for local people. The Recreation was quietly chuffed when asked to be the venue for the inaugural Barbaresco a tavola (OZ). It's kind of like working, only different.
This year's Barbaresco a tavola (OZ) features some great wines from Barbaresco and showcases the following producers - Paitin, Produttori del Barbaresco, Albino Rocca, Fiorenzo Nada, Bruno Rocca, Castello di Verduno, and Valter Musso.
The wines poured for tasting will be accompanied by a selection of food designed to amplify these wonderful wines.

An awesome last minutes dinner with two of NZ's most exciting wineries.
The Recreation bistro x bottleshop introduces the first of its biannual beer festivals. It promises to be a great afternoon with beers from Hawkers, Napoleone & co, La Sirene, Wolf of the willows and more. The ticket includes food served all afternoon both from The Recreation's wood burning grill focusing on food we consider Australians would call a 'barbie' as well as a well known local food vendor producing some food in an American barbecue theme.
The beers on show have been selected by the brewers as what they consider their best winter style of beer. Expect Porter, Red Ale and IPA. The ticket price also includes the first beer that you decide on from the range on show. Beers will then be sold by the 'pony' for the low-price of $5 per glass. Entertainment will be provided by a live band. Definitely an afternoon not to be missed.
Full list of brewers for this exciting event below.
