Sittella Long Lunch 2013

It’s a lunch I look forward to every year and this was to be the fifth time that GG and I had attended together. It is one of our favourite annual events and as fate would have it, this year it was held a month later than normal which aligned perfectly with GG and my […]

Good Food and Wine Show 2013

The Good Food and Wine Show is one of those events that I’ve always wanted to go to, but just never got around to. Strange because I am partial to both good food and good wine J Thankfully though the stars aligned this year. I was fortunate enough to receive a ticket from Devahasdin, so […]

Top Drop Tours

Now this news is unlikely to shock many but GG and I don’t mind the occasional glass of wine. And given we were spending quality time in a premium WA regiong we thought it best to book in a tour so that we could enjoy the experience of numerous different tastings together. So having put it […]

Sandalford – first visit for 2013

Consistency is a wonderful thing. And I suspect this is why Sandalford winery has long been one of my favourites in the Swan Valley. Granted that it perhaps cemented itself as a favourite all the more last year when GG and I had our reception there and they did such a stellar job, but whenever […]
