6.40pm, Wednesday 21st September, Yalumba, Angaston
I’m late folks! The Yalumba Growers Dinner is only on every two years, and tonight Steve Lindner and the events crew have set the whole thing up down at Vine Vale in the biggest glasshouse at our Nursery. There has been intense activity down there for days, and right now they’re serving canapés and I’m still at work packing up – out to Dublin and points beyond in Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland for the next 7 weeks.
And I have to get changed into the Sarah Palindrome power twin set for tonight as I’m doing the support act speech to Robert’s main event address. That would be the owner and spiritual leader here at Yalumba, so yes, I am a bit nervous. If you’re going to flop, it’s always best away from home – not in front of all the growers, winemakers and viticultural crew!
So I will make sure I get some photos of what the whole thing looks like, and I’d better run !! NOW
