Our first outing for 2022 was on a perfect autumn day.
Fifteen members headed to Pizzini’s winery where we were shown to our tasting table, beautifully set with an array of glasses, and outside overlooking the grounds.
Our sommelier, Chas, introduced himself and then proceeded to impart his expert knowledge of Pizzini wines and make suggestions for wines to taste. We started with five La Famiglia Wines that were fabulous for everyday drinking and one from their Special and Rare wine selection.
Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini planted the first vines on the property in 1978, then in 1994 the first wine under the Pizzini label was produced.
We then moved to the Mountain View Hotel where we sat out in the garden under the shade of the established trees.
The wait staff were very friendly and the service was good and food excellent – very large servings. A very pleasant way to spend the day.
On 23rd March we will be heading to Politini Wines at 65 Upper King River Road, Cheshunt and lunch at The Ovens, 451 King Valley Rd Cheshunt.
Meeting in the car park behind Aldi at 10.00am. Please let me know if you are coming on 0428 696 408 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 20th March.
