Just a Few Paddocks Away

Down the road, around the corner, just a few paddocks away.
A celebration of local produce in the Yarra Valley. 

As part of the 2018 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, this community driven dinner is a collaboration between The Warehouse Bar & Larder, The Providore at Meletos, Winemaker Syd Bradford (Thick as Thieves) and guest Chef Hugh Davison from neighbouring Stones of the Yarra Valley.

Join us from 6.30pm for a glass of wine and salumi in The Providore. Peruse the wonderful regional produce and unique homewares with some added encouragement from an exclusive 20% discount on the night. Through our private courtyard you will be ushered into the warmth of The Warehouse where you will join fellow diners at a communal table for a shared feast of Yarra Valley produce. The talented and prolific Syd Bradford, will provide some sensational wines and entertainment through the night with his infamous Thick As Thieves releases.

By night’s end, we hope you've got to know your fellow diners, fallen in love with some amazing local produce and learnt the story behind Syd’s wine ‘The Aloof Alpaca’. We look forward to sharing our table with you.

We recently visited Syd for our quarterly printed broadsheet Seasoned
