Andy and I helped host a fantastic dinner last week for 40 upstairs at The Aviary as part of Melbourne’s Spring Grazing season. Fantastic lamb from Rutherglen and the whole table was edible – pictures are on our facebook page. Perfectly matched with the menu were the 2008 Polly, 2011 Pinot gris, 2010 Reserve Pinot noir, and the 2011 Riesling Late Harvest. Coming up on 18th November is the St Mary’s House of Welcome 2012 Wine Rules Touch Footy Competition at Elwood Park.
A great fundraiser on the day (if you have the time and inclination) do come down and support the Delatite Desperados as we battle with around 15 other teams from the Victorian wine industry. You can also contribute to the Desperados fundraising efforts for the homeless via the Everyday Hero fundraising page http://www.everydayhero.com.au/david_ritchie_7
