Join James Halliday for an intimate Q&A and wine tasting session at the launch of Melbourne’s newest luxury retirement living community, Ardency Kennedy Place.

In an exclusive event, Melbourne wine lovers have the opportunity to join James Halliday in an intimate Q&A session while sampling top-rating wines from four award-winning wineries. James will sit down with Halliday Wine Companion head editor Amelia Ball to share his insights as part of the Victorian launch of Lendlease’s luxury retirement living brand, Ardency. 

The event will run over two sittings on Thursday, March 5, the first from 2pm, and the second from 5pm, during which guests will enjoy Halliday award-winning wines from:

Yangarra Estate – Wine of the Year 2020
Seville Estate – Winery of the year 2019
Principia – Dark Horse Winery of the Year 2019
Cullen Wines – Winemaker of the Year 2020

Ardency Kennedy Place is the newest luxury living offering from the Lendlease’s Ardency brand and the first of its kind in Victoria. With a name inspired by the “king of Australian television” Graham Kennedy, the $190m development is set to transform the former Nine Network studios in Melbourne’s Richmond.
