Vintage in the Vines

I met Alex Brydges at a fabulous lunch on Wednesday at Martin Duncan's Freestyle Escape property in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Alex brought plenty of wine for the lunch and I enjoyed a glass of the Bridgeman Downs Cellars 2008 chardonnay.

If you'd like to try some of Alex's wines where they were made, the beautiful South Burnett, head for Vintage in the Vines on May 16. Alex says with another year’s harvesting is done, it’s time to park the tractor and take pleasure in the fruits of someone else’s labour.

The inaugural five-course Vintage in the Vines dinner celebrating the end of the season will be held at Bridgeman Downs Cellars in the heart of the South Burnett wine region, overlooking the picturesque Lake Barambah. Festivities begin with dinner on Saturday May 16, followed by the perfect recovery, a Merlo Coffee Appreciation Session, hosted by coffee ‘Don’ Dean Merlo, on Sunday morning.
