Wine Festival Preparation And Etiquette


I love a wine festival and I have been to one or two so I think I have a pretty good routine when preparing for a wine festival and how I act once I get there.

I want to make sure that I and the people around me have a great time and by the time we leave I can’t wait for it to happen all over again next year.

So, today I am preparing for Wine and Food’s Unwined Subiaco, WA’s premium wine and food festival.

I have been kindly gifted a couple of tickets for the VIP Club Lounge from the team at CMS Events and I am super excited.

But, before heading off to any wine festival, I make sure to have a couple of things under wraps.

Don’t Forget To Prep

1. Dress For The Occasion

It is currently beautiful Springtime weather here in Perth, and today, we’re expecting a high of 28 Degrees celcius and tomorrow a high of 33. That’s a little warmer than what we have been used to recently.

Taste Great Southern – Make A Long Weekend Of It


I have a long-standing connection to Western Australia’s Great Southern region.

As a kid, my family would pack up the car at least twice a year and drive the 4-5 hours to my Aunty and Uncles farm just East of Albany, where we would spend at least a week at a time catching Koonac’s from one of the many dams, fishing and sight-seeing.

Fast forward 15 years or so and the team at CMS Events gave me an amazing reason to reacquaint myself with this wonderful part of the world. To be honest, I don’t know why I don’t visit the region as often as I use to, but I am going to make it a goal for 2019 to make sure I visit far more regularly. Continue reading
