Welcoming Geoff Thompson, Grounded Cru (McLaren Vale) to The Wine Loop!
NEW EVENT! With just twelve seats at the table, join Grounded Cru winemaker Geoff Thompson in The Wine Loop for dinner at Bar Liberty on Thursday 3rd October.
Passionate about all things wine, Geoff ‘Joffa’ Thompson took the plunge in his late 20’s - leaving his career in the photographic industry to follow his passion and dream of becoming a winemaker.
Based in McLaren Vale and with the regions of the Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek nearby, Geoff handcrafts his wines from premium vineyards from the ‘Vale, Hills & Creek’. Pinot Noir, Grenache, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon feature alongside Chardonnay and Pinot Gris in the range.
Founding his own family wine label in 2013, the name ‘Grounded Cru’ epitomises Joffa’s philosophies. ‘Grounded’ reflects his down-to-earth nature and the fact that he values relationships. And Cru being both the French word meaning ‘growth’ and used with ‘Grand’ and ‘Premier’ to classify the superior quality of a vineyard.
Joffa also likes to think of ‘Cru’ with regards to joining the crew or being part of a group of like-minded people! So look forward to an evening of great wine, great food and great conversation – with a menu crafted by Bar Liberty Head Chef Zackary Leon Furst.
