On September 20, 2014 we held an event called “Pinots of the World” at The Park Hyatt Melbourne.
Eight incredible Pinots were paired with a mouth-watering three-course dinner from the award-winning restaurant radii.
I hosted an exclusive wine tasting to some wine connoisseurs who love pinot – 23 of them.
It was a lovely evening with some very classy and elegant pinots matched to some delicious food.
