Yering Station Charity Lunch with Guy Grossi

On Saturday 20 May, Yering Station welcomed Guy Grossi for a special charity lunch and raised $28,725 in support of the Children's Cancer Foundation.

Together with Head Chef Maxime Croiset, Guy Grossi created an inspiring menu specifically matched to an incredible line up of wines.

Guests who attended the event experienced a five course menu plus canapés, with matching Yering Station wines, poured mostly from magnums with a predominately Shiraz focus. Yering Station’s winemaker Brendan Hawker and Viticulturist Andy Clarke presented the wines for each course and Gordon Gebbie was the Auctioneer on the day. 

“The Rathbone Family have been involved in raising money for the Children’s Cancer Foundation since it first started 25 years ago. We are very pleased to see the success it has had in improving the lives of children with cancer and their families. This event has been a great success and we would like to thank everyone for their generosity on the day,” said Darren Rathbone, ‎CEO and Winemaker at the Rathbone Wine Group.

Yering Station owners, the Rathbone family, have been fundraising and advocating for childhood cancer since their son Matthew was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 1979. 

Thank you to the Rathbone family and their guests, for their generosity and support.

The Yering Station charity lunch in 2015, with Vue de monde’s Shannon Bennett raised $22,900 for the Foundation.
