Meet the tastemakers – The Art of the Palate fuses the worlds of fine dining, drinking and art
As much as Brisbane is a rather laid back city, sometimes we like to get a little bit fancy. Don’t get us wrong – we love to chill as much as the next person, but every now and then an occasion comes along that’s well worth dressing up and getting your pinkie finger out for. If you truly appreciate a fine wine and are no stranger to Brisbane’s flourishing art scene, The Art of the Palate is a one-of-a-kind event that will tick all of your boxes. Coming to The Lab Restaurant and Bar on Tuesday February 27, this cultural adventure brings together world-famous wine with impeccable eats and arresting visual art.
When you think about it, art, food and wine have a lot in common – so it makes perfect sense that The Art of the Palate has been specifically curated to draw upon these complementary fields. For one night only, this inaugural event will bring together wine connoisseurs, art aficionados and lovers of the finer things in life to indulge in some of Brisbane’s best across all industries. How’s this for a triple threat – the night will showcase an award-winning selection of Penfolds, an expertly curated four-course menu from sous chef Anita Green and her team, and the works of emerging Brisbane artist Lance Boucaut.
If you’re looking for the ultimate drawcard for The Art of the Palate, can we tempt you with the fact that there will be a tasting of Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz? This wine retails for a cool $850 a bottle and is one of the best vintages to come under the label, recently awarded an astounding 100 points by esteemed wine critic Andrew Caillard MW. The evening will also highlight a selection of Penfolds wines with tasting notes from Penfolds ambassador Zoe Warrington, perfectly harmonised with Anita’s fresh, seasonal menu. Whilst wining and dining, guests will take in the beauty of Lance’s vibrant works while hearing the stories and inspirations behind the canvas.
