8.50am, Sunday 17th July, Brothers Hotel, Rattray St, Dunedin, South Island, New Zealand
Morning folks, and I’m pleased to report that our first ever Yalumba stadium gig last night at the Forsyth Barr here in Dunedin – home of the Highlanders – went absolutely swimmingly! We had 40 wine and rugby fans from all over Southland turn up at 5 to assess their way through eight wines……each one paired with a canapé put together by the fab stadium chefs.Here’s the view from the Heartlands Hotels Lounge in the Forsyth Barr Stadium above the pitch…..the 3.30pm calm before the sell out game against the Waikato Chiefs storm.
The table settings were fab…
And a tremendous win to the home – we love em’ – Highlanders 25 : Chiefs 15……and thanks to the freaky good Ben Smith for signing the flag – magic souveneir of our first stadium / pre game Yalumba event…….it’s going straight to display at my desk!
