Crown Melbourne and Seppelt Wines Welcome Back Guests to Bistro Guillaume

To celebrate the easing of restrictions on Victoria’s restaurant industry that came into effect last night at midnight, Crown Melbourne (Crown) and Seppelt Wines treated Victorian couples to one of the very first in-restaurant dining experiences since the state’s restaurants closed down in March, hosted after the laws were relaxed at midnight.

Having announced their engagement on March 31, Johnny Graham and Emma Hosking were unable to have a traditional romantic meal at their favourite restaurant to celebrate. As such, Crown and leading Victorian winery Seppelt partnered together to give the couple their dream engagement dinner – at famed Melbourne restaurant, Bistro Guillaume complete with Seppelt’s award winning wines.

Johnny and Emma were treated to a 3 course decadent meal with matched wines including Seppelt Drumborg Riesling and award winning Seppelt St Peters Shiraz.

George Samios, Seppelt Fine Wine Director is encouraging Victorians to get behind venues and Australian wineries as they begin to reopen.

“Lots of people have missed out on celebrating treasured moments during the last couple of months, so it’s great that now people can go out to a restaurant and enjoy a nice glass of wine to toast the moment - and finally celebrate”

“Seppelt are lucky to supply wines to hundreds of venues across Victoria and we look forward to supporting them as they reopen after tough times” he adds.

Crown Melbourne Executive General Manager, Enda Cunningham, says his staff are looking forward to bringing to life more special experiences and celebrations for Melburnians as restrictions ease.

“COVID-19 has been challenging for the hospitality industry right across Melbourne. The team at Bistro Guillaume and all our restaurants here at Crown Melbourne are looking forward to being able to welcome our customers back to enjoy great dining experiences. We’ve spent a lot of time behind the scenes implementing new physical distancing and hygiene measures – so we’re thrilled to be able to welcome Melbourne back.”

Crown will commence a staged re-opening of its restaurants and hotels in line with the Victorian government’s easing of restrictions.
