    Details

    This tasting was postponed last year.  It is now happening on Thursday 9 May at the Amora hotel.  Tickets are $40.  There are more details on the attached flyer.

    In addition to the wines we managed to get our hands on last year, we also now have:

    • Stony Ridge Larose 2000 (1) bottle - A Bordeaux cabernet sauvignon dominant blend from the Waiheke Island producer. Larose is widely regarded as NZ’s best take on a Bordeaux blend.  And it would want to be.  If you buy this from the vineyard cellar, it will set you back an eye watering $320 for a bottle of the 2000 vintage.  We managed to get hold of this little gem courtesy of a generous donation from a family who have a child with cancer.
    • JK (John Key) Pinot Noir 2009 (1) bottle - There’s nothing our PM can’t do….
    • Junction Road Point Noir (2) bottles - Southern Hawkes Bay pinot noir made by former All Black prop John Ashworth.

Drinking and driving

Members will be aware of the lowering of drink/drive limits from December 2014. If unsure read the Land Transport Amendment Act (no 2) 2014. We ask members to be conscious of these limits.

For those driving, water and some food are provided or think about a designated driver, taxi, uber or dial-a-driver to get you home safely.

Wine bottle screw caps

Save and bring them to the next monthly meeting.

Anne is collecting them to give to the Lions organised Kidney Kids support group.

No food lids or beer tops, please.
