I know that many of our loyal members have been wondering what happened to our Annual Family Dinner – a regular fixture on our calendar for the past 7 years. I am so happy to let you know that we will be continuing the tradition this year, and after chasing down our ideal venue – Mark’s favourite restaurant in fact – I can reveal this year’s invitation to our D’Orsa Dinner…..

Annual Family Dinner invite (front)

Matteo’s is a well-established Melbourne institution, renowned for its modern Australian cuisine and proud recipient of 2 Chef Hats. Not only is the food incredible here, the venue itself is a study in refined beauty, its rooms evoking a truly intimate ambience.


With this gorgeous new venue comes a brand new format, and this year we’re excited to offer a choice of either a Dinner Only ticket, or a Masterclass & Dinner experience on each night. Of course, in the usual Sanguine style, each night includes prize giveaways and the ever popular museum tasting bench and our wonderful sponsors Plumm Glassware are once again providing our stunning crystal glassware for the occasion.

As Matteo’s intimate space only allows us to seat up to 70 people for dinner, and 30 in the Masterclass, tickets are limited and will sell fast.

You can download your official invitation, but here is a snapshot of what you can look forward to

Dinner Only – 6.30pm canapés for a 7pm dinner start Early bird discounted price of $155 per person until Monday 31st August (including gifts valued at minimum $25). (Full price $165)

Masterclass & Dinner – 6pm (sharp) for masterclass followed by dinner at 7pm Early bird discounted price of $185 per person until Monday 31st August (including Plumm European Glassware and wine gift valued at minimum $145). (Full price $195)

RSVP by 9th September or phone Jodi on 0409 140 507.

We have decided to host these dinners later in the week hoping that this timing will be more conducive to your busy calendar. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the events.

We look forward to welcoming you to Matteo’s in September.
