Share Yalumba – Private Wine Tasting
Hosted by Brenton Fry
It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon when we held our inaugural Tasting Session in our humble little office with a few friends from the trade. We took this opportunity to showcase some of Yalumba’s best selection as well as a few other key labels from our collection. Brenton was fantastic, giving everyone a casual presentation on each wine that was showcased with the most enlightening ancedotes on the journey of winemaking.
We are just glad everyone enjoyed themselves and took precious time off on a Sunday to ‘Share Yalumba’ with us! Thanks everyone!
(And thank you Brenton, for rolling up your sleeves for the cleaning up. 🙂 )
