Longview is a stunning family owned Australian vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of classic old world estates, it has quickly established itself as one the most awarded vineyards in the region since its first vintage in 2001.
Brothers Peter and Mark Saturno were eager for a change from the big city lifestyle of New York City and decided they were ready to move back to their native South Australia to take on the challenge of producing the kind of premium, cool climate wines they had developed a passion for whilst abroad. Along with their sister, mother and father the boys have wine, food and hospitality in their blood and with help from dedicated vineyard staff, this family affair aims for further success while never forgetting the fundamentals of past achievements.
We are returning to Vertical Restaurant for this very special winemaker’s dinner with winemaker Peter Saturno leading us through his award winning wines. The winery is represented by Hobbs & Company here in Ontario.
NOTE: Complimentary parking in First Canadian Place for AWS dinner guests from 5pm; just bring your ticket with you for validation.
