An occasional series about interesting wines I try, some wine news and things that annoy me

On the weekend we attended Jan's 60th birthday in Auckland. This was a truly great event, held in a local tennis club and suberbly set up and catered by Tom and Janny's family and friends. Its nice to see warmth and conviviality (ably helped by a great selection of wines) with no tension or hassles. Parties and events with alcohol don't have to involve argument and unruly behaviour. This one was rich and rewarding. The family spoke very nicely about Jan - the sons wrote and performed a hilarious homage in song - and Jan gave a really funny and nice thank you speech. This was one to remember.
