Julian Hanna, owner of Towerhill Estate in Mount Barker, WA, visited Merchants recently – bringing with him famous truffles from neighbouring Manjimup, in WA.
A wine dinner with Julian the Riesling Whisperer was hosted at Merchants, and guests enjoyed Julian’s magnificent Rieslings and Cabernet Merlot, including the 2008 Riesling – winner of Decanter Gold. The highlight of the evening (besides, the wines and truffles) was Julian’s impromptu Slam Poetry dedicated to an old work colleague…

Christmas was celebrated early at Merchants – in July as the tradition goes in the land Down Under..
We ho-ho-hosted a fabulous, festive feast with special guest Chief Winemaker from Blue Pyrenees Estate Andrew Koerner as our host. Not-so-secret Santa made a surprise appearance, gifting our guests with a bottle of Blue Pyrenees Brandy.
