    Presenter: Simon Bell, CoLab Wine Merchants

    In our post last month, Wayne mentioned that Simon would be presenting wines from South Australia.  While this had been canvassed it was not possible to put this together in the time available and Simon has outlined a Taste of Europe instead.  We are happy with this and the following will be the wines presented:

    • Alpha Domus Collection Sauvignon Blanc, NZ
    • Vivanco White Rioja, Spain
    • Guerrieri Rizzardi Pinot Grigio IGP Veneto, Italy
    • Domaine Dupre Bourgogne Chardonnay, France
    • Vivanco Rioja Crianza, Spain
    • Vivanco Rioja Reserva, Spain
    • Chateau Mauciol Cotes du Rhone Villages Red, France

    Members will know that Simon has supported our Club in the past has presented tastings for Ash Ridge and Macvine. Simon has recently moved to this new company in wine and spirit wholesaling, Colab Wine Merchants Limited. The directors of Colab are, as Wayne pointed out last month, associated with 2 well-known wineries: Alpha Domus Limited [Hawkes Bay] and Terra Sancta [Central Otago].
