Wine night, Havelock
Hi all, no..... I'm not missing, still here, just busy with life and kids and personal ventures (exciting ones, that I do hope to share soon) I'm still in love with photographing people and weddings too, but with the last few months being winter, well.... not much like that happening for me here yet. We've settled in up here in Marlborough now, but always seem busy, or is it the country lifestyle.... maybe I just got used to being in town and hiding away rather than out and about in nature and animals like I am here on the farm!
Anyway.................................... Last week I had a last minute invite to join a friend (thank you Sarah) at a wine night held at the Captains Daughter in Havelock.
Wow, what an amazing night of good food and amazing wines to sample, plus the bonus of meeting new friends and people from around the area.
Five wines are brought along by a different winery each month to be sampled while the local chefs at the restaurant pair them with some amazing foods.
I'd been told of this amazing experience not long after arriving back in the area, but I never pushed myself to go along. I feel I've done myself a great disservice missing out on the monthly samplings of food and wine!
We had Brett, one of the wine makers from Nautilus Estate of Marlborough for September and I definitely plan to do this again next month... (I might even attempt to get a babysitter and take the hubby)
please note: I love food and I'm partial to some wines - but I'm not a critic so take all my opinions with a grain of salt.... Cheers, Emma
