Always something new..
We finally finished the barrel hall upgrade by installing another collection of our now famous Marsden B Power station lights, somewhat like the tasting room, but lacking in the view department.
So having cleaned it for the first time, this morning I have been cleaning up yet again after another very successful function!
The Breast cancer Pink Ribbon people approached us to hold a wine tasting event as a fund raiser for Breast Cancer, so how could we say no??
Kim and Belinda turned up and transformed the barrel hall to a room of fun, fairy lights and food. Not to mention the outside of the winery…
It all started quietly, but as normal became a loud and proud wine talk in no time at all.
My job was to be the host and talk about wine, but it was so much fun and such a catch up with people it became more like a gathering of old mates.
The atmosphere was absolutely wonderful and everyone had a great time.
One of the most interesting things from this event was which wine was enjoyed most.
We did our normal tasting line up and then offered the patrons a choice of any of the wines tasted, as a full glass for free, post the tasting as part of the deal. After the night we looked at the volume consumed of each varietal, surprisingly the overall winner by a large amount was Chardonnay! I guess there is an underbelly of Chardonnay drinkers who are a bit scared of admitting there actual true love…
Pinot Noir was a definite second, but significantly behind the mighty Chardonnay.
Life is moving pretty fast now we have these places to offer.
Call in and see have great it is for yourself!!
