Dress up and get treated as royalty in a fairy tale castle

Bouffant hairdos, cinched waists and goblets of wine will collide for the ultimate night of decadence this July at the Tomich Wines "Let Them Drink Wine" event.

It's time to dust off the feathers, trinkets, and poufs, because this is a dinner that will expect you to bring your best impersonation of Marie Antoinette (and/or her equivalent king). Completing the idea of a fairy tale one-night-only dinner, guests will be treated to the picturesque views offered by The Manor at Basket Range, as part of Winter Reds.

"Whether guests want to be primped, powdered and wigged or simply nod to embroidered elegance – this will be a party where every guest has that certain Je ne Sais Quoi," says Tomich Wines Director, Randall Tomich. Hoping to provide guests with a "modern twist on the baroque-era parties of days gone by", The Manor will be transformed into a glitzy and glamorous affair.

"Bees have been synonymous with the French Monarchy for years and proudly adorn our Tomich logo as a tribute to our family bee-keeping history. Given our love for bees and their rich French history it was the inspiration for this fabulous affair".

The night will kick off with an extravagant banquet dinner that will involve canapes on the terrace, after which the ballroom will offer a feast that will include slow-roasted suckling pig, with all the wintry trimmings, like stewed apple and fennel and a generous helping of roasted potatoes - all matched with award-winning Tomich Wines. Bringing the feast to a close with a sweet touch, guests will then be able to enjoy cocktails and a "French-inspired dessert buffet" that will bring the classics into the mix - macarons, crème brulee, and of course, cake (as the dear Queen ordered).

Guests will also have the opportunity to have fun on the dance floor, thanks to the classical and modern beats performed by Adelaide Hills string quartet Strung-out Mamaswho, followed by DJ Nick Dawson.
