Watershed Wines was established in 2001 on the southern end of the Margaret River. The Margaret River region is world renowned for traditional varietals of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, but is expanding into alternative varietals such as Sangiovese and Viognier.
On Wednesday 29th March, Riley St Garage will be hosting a dinner featuring Watershed’s multi-award winning wines and we asked Severine Logan, Head Winemaker at Watershed, to take us through the menu;
Kingfish, olive crumb, almond cream truffle oil
Pairing: 2014 ‘Senses’ Sauvignon Blanc “we tried to get some texture for it not just to be a ‘fruity’ wine, but for it to have some complexity”
Seared scallop, yuzu koshu butter, pickled apple
Pairing: 2014 ‘Senses’ Viognier “Viognier – the variety itself – with its intense fruit flavour is just best with food, rather than as an aperitif”
Pairing: 2014 ‘Awakening’ Chardonnay “an early wine of ours, we started it in 2003, the toasted cashew, nectarine, peach and butteriness make it perfect for pairing with food”
Fried quail, bonito crust, soy vinegar
Pairing: 2013 ‘Senses’ Sangiovese “very small volume that was originally made with our on-site restaurant in mind, perfect lighter style, more savoury, doesn’t dominate a dish and though it is a red wine, can go well with fish or game”
Pairing: 2010 ‘Awakening’ Cabernet Sauvignon “2010 was an elegant vintage – a lot of perfume, a lot of lift, nice tight structure, not that really sweet, rich fruit that can turn people away”
Banana mousse, peanut brittle, yuzu
Pairing: 2014 Late Harvest Viognier “Viognier is a great variety for dessert wine because it likes being really ripe, and you get beautiful flavours of marmalade, dried apricots – it’s quite luscious”

When Rabbi Yaacov Deyo set up a singles event at a Los Angeles coffeehouse in 1998, he had no idea that his unique spin on ‘singles night’ would go viral. The Rabbi’s idea was to get a bunch of single Jewish guys and gals in the same room, give them 10 min to talk to each person, keep track of who liked each other and follow up these matches so they could set up future dates themselves. Within a year, Jews and Gentiles alike were setting up speed dating events all over the place. The advantage of speed dating is that it’s a great way to meet people, and unlike online dating it gives a chance for chemistry to do what a profile picture never could. So ‘Buckle up, Buttercup’ and book your spot at RSG’s first Valentine’s Day speed dating event…
Join us at Busby, under the garage, for our first singles speed dating event.
Enjoy a delicious cocktail or beer on arrival, canapes & 15 dates on the night & get ready for some sparks to fly.
Love. A basic fact of the human condition. Like sleep, or Sex and the City reruns. Valentine’s Day is the day we set aside to celebrate that strange cocktail of chemicals responsible for some of the best (and worst) feelings we’ve ever had. But how should it be celebrated?
In Finland, Valentine’s Day is less about romance and more about remembering friends. In South Korea, there are ‘Twelve Days of Love’ celebrated throughout the year on the 14th of every month. On 14th February South Korean women bestow gifts upon men and a month later they return the favour. If a gift isn’t reciprocated, they eat a dish of white noodles and black bean sauce. In Japan, it is all about the guys as ladies offer chocolate gifts and hope for romance to be returned. At Riley St Garage, it means Oysters, Champagne and Sweets.
