Traditionally, a Paulée marks the end of the harvest. It is an opportunity for harvesters to share a good meal and taste the product of the vineyard in which they have just spent several days. The word comes from the patois “paule”, meaning “shovel”. The Paulée could thus be, originally, the last shovel of grapes poured into the press. The first Paulée of Meursault dates back to 1923. It was organized by Count Jules Lafon, then mayor of the village.
This inaugural edition in Melbourne will be one of the biggest BYO lunches in the country and will host around 250 guests, with a 6 course banquet, musical entertainment, fine bottles shared, and top sommeliers from across the country pouring wine. La Paulée Melbourne will be a celebratory rendez-vous for the wine industry and all fine wine lovers.
Wine lovers and winemakers will share their wines with passion. All guests, joining in the tradition of La Paulée, will bring one or two very special bottles to share among friends, winemakers, sommeliers and fellow wine lovers.
Current wineries in attendance: Yabby Lake Vineyards, Bannockburn Estate, Dominique Portet, Ten Minutes by Tractor, among others.
