“Tasting StoneFish Wines at Royal Cliff”


The deVine Wine Club of Royal Cliff Hotels Group hosted a fabulous ‘StoneFish’ wine tasting event at the Grand Hotel’s Head of State Chamber (Grand Ballroom). Featuring an impressive selection of StoneFish Wines, the evening was well-received by old and new wine members alike. 

Royal Cliff General Manager Mr. Christoph Voegeli opened the evening, welcoming the wine members to yet another fantastic event and introduced Mr. Peter Papanikitas, the founder and owner of StoneFish wines. Mr. Papanikitas’ vibrant and friendly personality drew wine members as he personally presented and explain the history and workings of his wines.

The wine tasting was presented in a new, more interactive format. Instead of classroom style tastings and lectures, individual booths were set up for each wine where junior wine sommeliers presented, served and explained the intricacies of each wine. An assortment of international canapés were accompanied the wines.

Today, Stonefish Wines is a company that comprises of a passionate and dedicated team that all have the same goal- to consistently produce and deliver premium wine to consumers all over Australia and the world. Since 2000, Stonefish has grown from a small and unknown boutique label, to one that sits proudly on restaurant wine lists and on a dining table at home, shared by friends. It’s a label that gets exported to countries around the world, and we are proud to represent our wonderful Australian vineyards every time it leaves the country.

Stonefish is more than a label, it epitomises the relaxed Australian lifestyle.

Today, membership has grown substantially and we are now Asia’s leading wine club. Our gala dinners are always very popular, offering an exquisite seven-course meal. At each event the resort invites renowned international wine experts to introduce and offer their wines for tastings.
