Sunset Wine 2018 – My Favourite Year!

Pull Up A Chair Hire - Sunset Wine 2018Yesterday I headed along to Sunset Wine at Brighton Reserve in Scarborough. And I had an absolute ball!

I have always said out of UnWined, City Wine and Sunset Wine, that the Scarborough beach based wine festival is my least favourite. I am not entirely sure why, perhaps it’s because it’s a bit of a hike for me to get there. Something silly like that.

We were of course on a budget so it meant visiting budget supermarkets like ALDI for food and the all important wine shopping. Continue reading

Vasse Felix Wine Dinner at the Inglewood Hotel, Perth

Menu at the Vasse Felix Wine Dinner at the Inglewood HotelI am pretty sure my Tuesday night this week was better than yours – 4 deletable courses of food, 5 glasses of top quality Margaret River wine, good company and all at a great setting on a rainy night.
