Vancouver Wine Festival…..we’re away!

11.56am, Wednesday 25th February, Pan Pacific Hotel, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Sorry folks, it’s been a big day, just got in from hosting the absolutely huge! “Wizards Of Oz” dinner at the staggeringly good speakeasy look Chambar restaurant, complete with old warehouse style narrow red brickwork and exposed timbers. It was Yalumba, Henschke and Vasse Felix on the list, and I’m not saying any more now – I want to do justice to sommelier Jason Yamasaki and chef Nico Scheurmans, so I’m writing it up tomorrow during the Festival tasting sessions. Now I need to get some sleep, as tomorrow is THE biggest day for us.

Cheers and here’s a couple of my rock star winemaker mates from Coonawarra – Sue Hodder and Prof Lynn – at last night’s opening Australia arrives at Van Wine Fest event. I’m seriously looking forward to being down on the ‘Terra Rossa Cigar’ for their Coonawarra Cabernet Weekend come October this year.

See ya when it’s Thursday
