On Sunday 9th of February, 2014, Top Australian Wines is hosting an exciting fine dining event at the renowned After The Tears restaurant in Elsternwick, Melbourne.

Dubbed 'Pinot Gris vs Pinot Grigio Wine' this special one-off wine tasting lunch will see guests enjoy 8 top-shelf wines, paired with beautiful Polish inspired dishes created by the chefs at After The Tears.

Guests are invited to come along and sample the four-course lunch and wine selections, and decide which Pinot is best!

Whether you are team Pinot Gris or team Pinot Grigio Wine, you are sure to love bountiful Polish feast that's on offer.

Guests will start the feast with a tantalising Farmer's Zakąski, with luscious grilled Polish sausages, sliced gypsy ham, chicken liver and cracked pepper parfait, duck confit, Uzbek lamb croquette, dill pickles, horseradish marinated beetroot, Russian salad, and rye bread.
