Dinner & Sex with Chantelle Otten

| Thursday 27th Feb & Tuesday 3rd March 2020 |

Dinner and Sex (conversations) with Chantelle Otten. A night to kick back, and be surrounded by like-minded individuals while sipping wine and enjoying Neptune’s cuisine.

Australians have a multicultural society, and for this reason, our sex education is a little ‘all over the shop’. For some, we learn from our cultural backgrounds, religion, friends and family. For most, we receive limited sex-education in school, which usually teaches us about pregnancy and STI prevention, and fails to teach us about pleasure, especially female pleasure, and consent.

This dinner is here to NORMALISE sexuality, pleasure and communication around sex. And Chantelle will give you the honest, scientifically-backed, real version of sexuality and what it is about.

She will be sitting and eating with you and will provide a presentation about modern-day sexuality and sexual self-esteem during dinner, plus answering a Q&A (questions can be submitted when purchasing tickets). So, please think… what would you like to ask a sexologist?

Please inform the venue if you have any dietary requirements to consider.

PLEASE NOTE – Tuesday 3rd of March is the only accessible friendly event.

Koerner x Neptune

| October 9th 2019 |

Damon​ and​ Jono Koerner offer an exclusive opportunity to celebrate their recent 2019 Young Gun of Wine award over dinner at Neptune.

Our Head Chef, Hayden McMillan, has crafted a bespoke five-course feast which will be perfectly matched with a selection of award-winning Koerner wines, making this a must-try mid-week experience.

From the vineyards of Watervale in the Clare Valley to Windsor’s neighbourhood wine bar, the Koerner brothers focus on fruit quality and transparent winemaking. One of the brothers will be talking through the wine varietals at the start of each course, making this a great educational experience for those who are lucky enough to secure a seat.

Tarrawarra Estate X Neptune

| 21st August 2019 |

There’s more than 50 kilometres separating Head Chefs Mark Ebbels and Hayden McMillan, but that hasn’t stopped them from developing a five-course menu that will hero local produce from Tarrawarra Estate’s quarter-acre kitchen garden, while showcasing Neptune’s coastal Italian leanings.

On Wednesday, 21st of August, Ebbels is teaming up with Neptune’s newly appointed chef for a one-time-only collaboration that will see guests flock to the Windsor local for an exploration of premium food and wine, spotlighting the Yarra Valley region.

The estate’s resident Winemaker and General Manager Clare Halloran, will also join the celebrated chefs at Neptune, matching premium pours from the internationally renowned winery throughout the evening.

Pol Roger Champagne Dinner

| 28th March 2019 |

Join us with Pol Roger for an evening hosted by resident Sommelier Dominic Getson and Champagne guru Lieven Vanhoutte celebrating the art of France’s famed drop.

We’ll be heralding Champagne as a drink that can be matched with food, nailing the misconception that it’s a wine solely for toasting.

Pouring five of Pol Roger’s best drops, our chefs have designed a menu that illuminates the notes of each bottle. We can’t wait for you to join us for this corker!

OSTRO x NEPTUNE

| 20+21 February 2019 |

We are joining forces with Julia Busuttil Nishimura, more commonly known in the food world as Julia Ostro, for a one-night-only exploration of her highly praised cookbook Ostro.

Recreating a selection of Julia’s personal Ostro favourites, she’ll be sharing the origins of her soulful food philosophy – one that sees simple ingredients shine.

And while her beloved home-style recipes will dominate the menu, guests will also be treated to some exclusive Neptune creations, drawing inspiration from Julia’s approachable cuisine and penchant for all-things seasonal.

Ticket includes: 4 courses with matching wine, alongside a grazing-style aperitivo on arrival.
