A NIGHT OF EXTRAORDINARY MOTORING AND OUTSTANDING FINE WINES WITH MCLAREN SUPERCARS AND GOURMET TRAVELLER WINE

Join us at McLaren Automotive for an evening devoted to the ultimate in exclusive British supercars and the finest food and wine

In conjunction with Gourmet Traveller WINE, McLaren invites you to one of three exclusive dinners hosted by renowned motoring writer Stephen Corby and winemakers and ambassadors from Australia’s most prestigious wineries.

In Sydney, McLaren will partner with the Hunter Valley’s Mount Pleasant Wines when winemaker Adrian Sparks will lead guests through a handpicked collection of outstanding wines. In Melbourne, Paul Bridgeman and his winemaking team from Yarra Valley’s Levantine Hill Estate will present some of the finest bottles from their award-winning winery, while in Adelaide Jamie Sach from Penfolds will take guests on a journey through the most sought-after releases from Penfolds, including Grange.

Guests will go into the draw for a chance to win a bespoke experience for two, which includes feeling the full force of McLaren as you get driven to the featured winery to attend a special one-off tasting at the destination.

Places are extremely limited. Book now to enjoy this unique wine and drive experience.
