Thanks very much Perth…..see ya soon!

10.34am, Saturday 21st April, Gate 9, Perth Airport, Western Australia

Morning all, we’ve come up from Mandurah this morning, and Pratty has just dropped me at the Perth airport to dash home and get all glammed up for the big wedding later today – our super salesgal Pia from the Perth branch is marrying her Mediterranean Mainman – congratulations!!!

And I’m back across the Nullarboar to Adelaide and back up to the Barossa for a week. But we’ve had a top run here in Perth – won a lot of new hearts and palates, and put another layer of goodtimes on the ones that we’ve had for a while. Solid stuff, and it will all be capped off nicely by the Yalumba Museum Tasting that Brian Walsh our in house winemaster will be hosting at the Parmelia Hilton Perth on Monday night – as part of the A+Australian Wine Program.

Here at the airport it’s peak hour – 32 flights a day they tell me in and out of Perth, all part of the mining Fly In Fly Out (FIFO – it’s a proper word and its own huge commercial world over here now ) boomtimes over here in the West.

And the Perth skyline has filled right up since I was here last year – on the far right is the just finished BHP building – the sign is yet to be attached to the massive meccano set stands up on top – and to the extreme right of the picture, that’s the WACA. The Western Australian Cricket ground – home pitch of the legendary Australian fast bowler Dennis Lillee.

So thanks a huge amount Perth, and we’ll see you soon!

PS. I will also be putting up individual stories on our events with Your Shout Liquor at Da Bruno’s Restaurant, the Silver Spoon Restaurant Dinner, the Twist Club Businessman’s Luncheon, and our first visit to Mandurah – last night’s dinner at ‘The Cut’ Golf Club.

  1. Hi Jane,

    Well what a Twist Club lunch it was, first class wines, geart ” crack ” ( in the irish way ) and as usual great entertainment by you !!!
    Fair to say you could from about 75% or more of the guests bragged about an Eagle landing, however , a bit like finding an empty spot in a shopping centre car pak,usually have the blue sticker on them for old and or injured all others seem to have baggage!!!!!!!!
    Look forward to the next time we pass, ther is an old saying, go to enough weddings as an un attch maybe it shall rub off ?????
    Thanks again, Andrew G
