Chef Jose Silva of Double Bay’s bibo Wine Bar and Head Winemaker Alex Retief of Urban Winery Sydney, invite you on an exclusive and intimate journey as they collaborate for the October Chef x Winemaker long lunch.
The Chef x Winemaker long lunches are one of Urban Winery Sydney’s signature experiences; each course is inspired by the latest releases alongside the cellared back vintages. The A.Retief wine label is made from grapes sourced from cool climate southern NSW regions, including Tumbarumba, The Hilltops and the family’s biodynamic vineyard in Gundagai. The grapes are all trucked in entirely handcrafted by Alex on-site.
Portugal-native Jose Silva, gained acclaim as Head Chef of Guillaume Brahimi’s 3-hat Opera House restaurant for 12 years before buying iconic Petersham bakery Sweet Belem, famous for the custard tarts that sell between 600 and 1000 on a weekend day! The chef x winemaker delicious four-course menu will incorporate flavours of Jose’s ancestral homeland and also take inspiration from the vineyards and winemaking process.
