|selection of photos from the evening... some tasty treats and empty wine glasses.|
Yes, it is that time of year again. The annual Women In Wine function which is held by the MCC (Melbourne Cricket Club) Women association. My friend David and my husband Mark have been attending this annual event for the last four years and we love it! Not only do we get some delicious food treats, we get to sample some great wines from a different winery every year. These wineries are selected as they have some inspiring women in charge of the wines, or making them - or both!
|The menu for the evening.|
This year's winery was Rob Dolan and we were treated to a selection of wines that aren't even available to the public yet! Very exclusive!
|I savoured the very last meatball!|
As per usual the food was excellent, this year there was a lot of seafood on the menu (not so great for people with allergies!) And the main part of the meal was a tapas style. I complained a bit about this as while the platters were going around and it eventually came to me, someone had swiped my allocated meatball! Luckily the great staff there brought me out another plate of meatballs and I indulged in maybe four! Gotta love a meatball!
|The gorgeous Rob Dolan pinot gris and it's lovely pink colour.|
The stand out wine for us was the Pinot Gris which was unusual in the sense that it was quite pink in colour. It had an excellent nose, was lovely on the palate, so much so that we ordered a case of it to enjoy with our friends.
Again, a fantastic Women In Wine event. Looking forward to the next one in 2012 (and our case of pinot gris to be delivered!)
