Blog 37: A wonderful suprise arrived today!

What a wonderful industry we are a part of. Brioni & I were happily working and gossiping about what we are going to wear to the SA Wine of the Year awards tonight….and a very large parcel arrived……

Our fabulous decanter

Like two kids on Christmas morning we unwrapped the parcel to find the most fabulous gift from Riedel Australia. For those of you who dont know who Riedel are- they are the makers of the best glassware for wine that you can get. I dont use any other glassware, same goes for our cellar door and the winery- nothing else is an option. This is one of the Riedel Face to Face Black Tie Decanters- see more about them here. My photo doesnt really do it justice- but it is seriously impressive!

Also enclosed was a wonderful letter. We are extremely proud to be a family business with a long history and to be associated with the Riedel family- who have been in business for some 11 generations and 333 years of glassmaking- astonishing!! I seriously love this industry!!
