Bi-monthly dinners

The Barwon Wine and Food Society was formed in 1976 by Darryl and Elizabeth Jones who have been constant members throughout the life of the Society. Others who have served the Society for over thirty years include Neil and Phyl Drew, Gail Thomas and Eddie Amon who, along with the Jones, are all Barwon Life Members.

 Barwon is a mixed group of around 50 people and meets usually on a Tuesday night every 6-8 weeks between February and December. Members are delegated to host functions and as the Geelong region has a diverse abundance of restaurants and venues from which to choose dinners extend across a wide range of styles and cuisines.

Over the years there have been numerous memorable and imaginatively themed dinners along with functions at various ethnic restaurants. The Society has also hosted functions featuring guest speakers including wine makers, food producers and journalists and has also engaged a number of high profile chefs to prepare special occasion dinners.

As the Society holds a substantial cellar, accompanying aged wines add to the interest and diversity of the functions with the annual Cellarmasterís dinner profiling high end, rare or specialty vintages members may not usually have the opportunity to encounter. There is also the annual Wine Options night that sees teams vying for a perpetual trophy while simultaneously educating their palates with an array of vintages from around the globe
