Granite Belt wine lovers weekend

What happens when a food and wine writer visits a wine and food region?  Well, a lot of eating and drinking, great conversations, a little learning and a lot of laughing and a food coma at the end.

I met some great people (including Ewan McPherson of Symphony Hill Wines pictured above) when I visited the Granite Belt recently and I've written all about it in this fortnight's edition of Bmag.

Here's the people and the story below.
