The Caxton Street Jazz Band, one of Australia’s top groups, will be playing this Saturday at Robert Channon’s Stanthorpe winery.
Robert Channon said the band “are great entertainers, they play great music and their concert is always a highlight of our year”.
“If you love hot, traditional jazz played with verve and colour and lots of that Caxton Street humour, you can’t miss them.
“This is the 10th consecutive year that they have played for us and it keeps getting better. Their concerts always end with standing ovations.”
Tickets for the concert are still $25 and as usual include a free glass of wine. Bookings are advised as this is always a popular concert.
Before the concert, there will be a special Caxton Street Tapas Banquet in the Singing Lake Cafe.
The banquet includes eight delicious traditional Spanish tapas dishes plus starters and dessert and costs $35 a head. Bookings for lunch and the concert are strongly advised.
The concert starts at 2.30pm this Saturday 15 July and is indoors in the Swigmore Hall – seated and heated – at Robert Channon Wines, at 32 Bradley Lane, Amiens. For bookings or information call the winery on (07) 4683 3260.

Gong for Channon Wines Head Winemaker
Granite Belt winemaker Paola Cabezas Bono has won the coveted 2017 Royal Queensland Wine Show Winemaker Bursary. For this she receives a place at the elite 2017 Advanced Wine Assessment Course facilitated by the Australian Wine Research Institute, South Australia.
This is an intensive four-day course designed for candidates with considerable formal wine tasting experience – Paola has judged in 13 wine shows to date. It aims to prepare potential wine show judges and to develop sensory analysis capabilities and the vocabulary of Australian wine industry personnel at an elite level.
Head winemaker at Robert Channon Wines, Paola has decided to pass on some of her knowledge, recently establishing ‘Paola the Wine Educator’ and offering classes for people who want to know more about wine.
Paola’s next Wine Appreciation Class will be in the barrel room at Robert Channon Wines on 29 July, at 4.30pm. It will include some Granite Belt wines including the Pinot Gris 2016 from Robert Channon Wines that recently won a gold medal and the trophy for best Queensland White Wine at the Cairns Wine Show as well as some international wines.
Information on this and her other classes can be found at www.paolathewineeducator.com
