The GMWC has celebrated Old World wine at a dinner held last night in Melbourne.
Members dined at Scopri restaurant, Carlton, where they worked their way through a suite of outstanding wines:
- a Bolinger NV Rosé (Champagne, France)
- a Marcel Amance 2012 Chablis (Burgundy, France)
- a Boschi dei Signori 2015 Barbaresco (Piedmont, Italy), and
- a Sangenis i Vaque 2001 Grenache-Carignan (Priorat, Spain).
The highlight? Impossible to say*; the night was a cracker from beginning to end.
*Though this exchange might come close…
CURLY: Dove vieni in Italia? Which part of Italy are you from?
WAITRESS: Milwaukee, USA.
