It was very special seeing so many of our wine friends at our 15th annual Seductive Sauvignons Festival last month at The Vineyard Hotel. Thank you for being with us and for your warm reception to the producers who were there. Many of the wines were not seen before which you all just loved and of course quite a few of the old favourites were welcomed back.
