Pialligo Estate has assembled an International culinary team to create a Japanese inspired dinner to celebrate the arrival of Japan’s HITO-Communications Sunwolves in Canberra. 

This Friday 27 May, on the eve of the historical Super Rugby match between the Aquis Brumbies and the Sunwolves, traditional Japanese drummers will welcome guests on arrival to Pialligo Estate. 

International Sake Master, Satoshi Yoshikubo from IPPIN has joined with Chef, IORI’s Mamoru Aizawa, and the Executive Culinary team of Pialligo Estate to create what is set to be a memorable evening. 

Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in an authentic and creative Japanese feast, incorporating Pialligo Estate farm fresh produce. This will be the first in a series of Culinary Events to be held at Pialligo Estate over the coming months. 

Pialligo Estate’s General Manager Charlie Costelloe said “The Aquis Brumbies and HITO-Communications Sunwolves, have both supported the event with Players and Executives attending the evening.”
