Thick As Thieves wines in collaboration with Candela Nuevo presents: A taste of the Yarra by Thick As Thieves

Join us in another spectacular wine tasting at Candela rooftop. A collaborati between Candela Nuevo and Thick As Thieves, a local boutique winery from the Yarra, showcasing some of the best Pinot Noir, Gamay, Chardonnay and Rose for our members.

Thick as Thieves is a one-man, Yarra based operation and that one-man is a guy named Syd. After 10 years in winemaking, working for some of the Yarra’s top producers during that time, Syd’s oenological clock started ticking and he decided the time was right to make his own babies.

Not having to answer to bean counters and marketing departments, Thick as Thieves has the freedom to experiment with alternative varieties and styles which means Syd gets to make interesting wines that he loves to drink, not wines that simply sell or are in vogue.

Members will be also able to access purchasing of wines on the night.

Date: Wednesday 4th October 2017
Time: 1800hs to 2000hs
Price: Candela Nuevo Members only event
Light canapes & great local cheeses included.
