Wine Lunch at Red Spice Rd McKillop St – February 21, 2016


A Very Special Wine Lunch at Red Spice Road McKillop Street, CBD

There was a little bit of work involved to organise this wine lunch at Red Spice Road.

More than usual but we were finally given permission to hold this event.

The first thing I have to say is that the new refurbished function room is absolutely beautiful and spacious.



On top of this were the very efficient Red Spice Road Staff who were very accommodating and helpful.

The city was quiet that morning when we came to setup – I recall it was the morning after the White Party in Melbourne.

We had 24  people who attended this event including Zenon Misko, Program Co-Ordinator of Melbourne Food & Wine.

Everything about this lunch was special and the food was something I will never forget.

Our guests were a pleasure to host & serve and a special thankyou to Zenon from Melbourne Food & Wine for attending.
