On Monday 20th June 2017, The Australian Financial Review counted down the winners of its annual restaurant awards, crowning the 100 best restaurants in Australia at a gala event held at The Star in Sydney.
Peter Lehmann was the proud wine partner for this prestigious event, which saw owners, chefs and sommeliers from Australia’s finest dining establishments come together in anticipation of a place on the list. Unlike other industry awards, these are voted upon by the top 500 chefs and restaurateurs in the country, meaning the winners are selected by their peers rather than food critics.
Guests sipped on the multi-award winning Peter Lehmann 2011 Wigan Riesling and Peter Lehmann 2015 H&V Shiraz, alongside a creative and inspired selection of canapés from The Star’s renowned fine dining residents; Black Bar and Grill, Sokyo, Balla and Momofuku Seiobo.
2017’s top honour went to Victoria’s Brae, while chef and owner Dan Hunter received further awards, including the ‘Australia’s Top Chef’ Award.
