Virtual Vino Lunch with OHA & Pfeiffer Wines

The way we come together over a shared meal might have shifted in 2020, but our OHA Virtual Vino Lunch in conjunction with James Halliday 5 star Rutherglen winery Pfeiffer Wines (Chris Pfeiffer OH ’67) and Melbourne’s cheekiest Italian restaurant Marameo is a wonderfully unique opportunity to drink fine wine and enjoy superb the comfort and safety of your very own home. 

How does it work?

  • Marameo will send your meal for two, to your home the day before the lunch, with instructions on how to finish each course.
  • Pfeiffer Wines will send you three delicious bottles of Pfeiffer wines – one to be enjoyed with each course of your meal.
  • These will arrive one week prior to the lunch.


Set your table with your very best linen tablecloth or even some flowering branches from the backyard, polish up your favourite'wine glasses, lay out your finest crockery and cutlery and position your smartphone or laptop in the perfect spot for a communal Sunday afternoon of Zoom with friends.

  • At noon (12:00pm) on Sunday, 20th September 2020 Zoom will open. 
  • The Pfeiffer family will log in from Wahgunyah.
  • Marameo will log in from their restaurant in the city and you (we hope lots of you) will log in from your own home, to join us for this very special ‘virtual’ shared lunch. 

Isolation continues to challenge many of us, but there is so much power in the ritual of eating together…..even if that eating happens through the screen of your smartphone or laptop.
