Melbourne Fabulous Ladies Wine Soiree October 2012

Our first ever Melbourne Fabulous Ladies Wine Soiree was held on Thursday 25th October 2012 was a fantastic night!

Sixty-five fabulous, wine loving women enjoyed an evening of incredible wine, food and company as we gathered at the Rose Diner in Port Melbourne to explore the wines of YarraLoch and how they held up against the wines of France! 

 With five-courses to get through, and two wines to sample with each course, there was nothing very lady-like about it!

Jason Tozer from World Wine Estates – our token Fabulous Lad for the evening – did a brilliant job of talking us through the incredible range of wines, while Steed Sheriff and his amazing team from the Rose Diner served up sumptuous offerings to match. (Despite threats of Steed donning a dress for the all-girl dinner, he remained firmly in his normal attire – much to the disappointment of his staff and us!)

The evening was also peppered with fabulous giveaways thanks to Spencer Lacy fashion who gave away a $250.00 gift voucher to one lucky lady on the night, James Halliday’s Wine Companion Magazine who gave away a 12-month magazine subscription and Cacao Vin who gave a thrilled winner a hamper filled with Brix Chocolate-for-Wine worth $230.

In fact, no one left the night empty handed with everyone who going home with a copy of Wine Companion Magazine and a goody bag of delicious Brix chocolates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What we’ll remember most about the night was the way women aged in their early twenties through to their mid-sixties shared tables and talked all things wine with each other. The conviviality was contagious, and as each table found their groove it carried over to the next one until the entire restaurant was alive with the sound of fabulous ladies having a marvelous time.

   

 

 

 

 

 

Of course, amidst all the fun and fabulousness we also had a serious task to do – to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research as part of Frocktober 2012. And when the hat wine bucket was passed around, everyone dug deep and $400 was raised in donations. Great stuff Melbourne!

Thank you to everyone who came along and made the evening such a wonderful success. We can’t wait to do it again soon Melbourne!
