Three easy questions to start the New Year....
1) Do you like the idea of Small Batch Wine + Paired Dinner Menu + Hong Kong's coolest venue? ✔️
2) Ever wondered who is the man behind so many of the great wines you receive every quarter in the City Kids Wine Club? ✔️
3) Are you excited by the prospect of an exclusive City Kids only experience on Australian Day (at a bargain $680 per person)? ✔️
Wine Brothers is excited to present the brainchild and head winemaker of the 5OS Project, Steve Grimley. Steve will host a 5-course paired wine dinner at 208 Ducentto Otto exclusively for the City Kids Wine Club.
Who is Steve Grimley?
Steve has been pushing the boundaries, challenging the convention and building success stories over his 25-year career in and around the Australian wine scene. Through the years Steve has been exposed to the large, commercial side of wine as chief winemaker of a foreign-owned operation, he has created his own operation exporting mass-produced wines overseas yet... he has ultimately been drawn back where his heart lies; the small batch passion behind the wine. Steve is more than a winemaker - he is visionary and rogue in a relatively conservative industry.
What is 5OS?
A great question that even Steve himself struggles to answer sometimes. Steve is the brainchild behind the 5 O'Clock Somewhere Project (5OS) and describes it as a project that embodies his passion for the artistic and unheralded small batch side of the wine industry. 5OS is a project that focuses on empowering the talent of respective artists (winemakers) and channelling them to find their own beat. It is part collaboration, it is part co-op. The result thus far has been wines that have heaps of drinkability but not at the expense of varietal, regional and vintage characteristics.
