What type of person would pass up the opportunity to ingest copious amounts of vodka, wine and caviar whilst listening to Dan Aykroyd ramble on about the significance of Crystal Skulls and how they somehow relate to large-scale quantities of Vodka and en masse marketing techniques? Not I, said the Walrus. Precisely why I found myself at the 3 Winos Trade Day on Monday 10th August.
Each year, Winestock, World Wine Estates and Combined Wines and Foods get together at the Four Seasons Hotel to display a comprehensive spread of various wines and food for industry giants, and lowly food bloggers.
A standout of the brand varieties sampled was ‘Whitehaven Wines’, based in the Marlborough region of NZ, whose richer-than-Donlad-Trump Pinot Noirs, while subtly sweet, certainly hit the spot.
The only things I didn’t engage with were the spit buckets, and I’m appreciative that the lads from 3 Winos booked a venue with a working elevator to facilitate my ungracious exit.
