Regional Winemaker’s Dinners to become a regular event

Berry resident and General Manager of the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach Hotel, Walter Immoos has long been a supporter of the regional food and wine industry. Living in the heart of the Shoalhaven Wine Region, Walter is keen to share the secrets of the South Coast.

Walter has been working with local Event Management Company, JAi Events and the Kiama Regional Wine Show Committee to promote regional food and wine to a wider audience. In conjunction with JAi Events and the Kiama Regional Wine Show, the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach will launch a new initiative for Accor AdvantagePlus members on Friday 5 September.

The first of a series of Accor South Coast Winemakers Dinners will feature a special menu and award winning wines from Coolangatta Estate. With over 880 Wine Awards and 59 Trophies to their name, the Coolangatta wine tasting dinner is sure to be a wonderful experience.

Coolangatta Estate Manager, Ben Wallis will discuss each wine and take guests on a journey into the world of vignerons and winemakers.

Novotel Wollongong Northbeach Executive Sous Chef Sebastian Hartmans will create a menu with a regional flavour to compliment the ten specially selected wines. Originally from Holland, Sebastian has cooked for the Dutch Government and Royalty, as well as gaining valuable experience cooking in France, Switzerland, Scotland and England prior to moving to Australia.

With over 60 commercial wine producers within the Southern Highlands and Shoalhaven Wine Regions we are looking forward to many more Accor South Coast Winemakers Dinners.
