Last weekend, the Melbourne Wine and Food Festival event of note was the cellar door and providore show at Como House in South Yarra. Accompanied by forty other wineries, Squitchy Lane was there, in glorious sunshine and with a fantastic audience of enthusiastic and aware patrons.
Both Saturday and Sunday started quietly but soon grew into a great tasting session where we were able to show our wines to a great number of people.
Many hadn't tried our wines before and it was a real pleasure to meet some of our old friends again. The overall reception for the wines was tremendous--I soon lost count of the number of Fume Blanc bottles we opened. The Chardonnay was also a highlight, assisted by the weather, while the Pinot Noir continued to impress.
Events like this, while time-consuming and tiring, are a real highlight for us. We love to show our wines and to meet new customers and welcome them to the Squitchy fanclub.
