On Australia Day Eve, we hosted a Gourmet BBQ at our cellar door. We had fantastic tunes by our resident DJ Pablito L'Amore, fantastic food as always by Chef Ben Sommariva (with the help of Ben & Nelson Riggs), and of course of fantastic cellar door crew manning the wine bar. It was a beautiful balmy evening, and everyone had a great time sitting back, relaxing, enjoying some great food and wine, and great tunes to bring in Australia Day.
