    BBQ – Derek’s place

    4:00 pm to late

    Venue: Derek’s place
    No Charge event
    BYO wine
    Food Your committee arrange the meat and salmon, and we ask participants to contribute by providing a salad or dessert, this should be sufficient for about eight people. This year we would ask that if your street address has an odd number, that you provide a salad and an even number, a dessert.

    We have noted in recent years that newer members have not always attended this event.  I encourage you to do so. The weather does not matter, the venue has covered outdoor areas to suit any occasion, including rain. The BBQ is a great opportunity to mix and mingle so please think seriously about attending.

    Anne asks you to bring any screw caps along that you have been collecting over the holiday period.

    The original Glenvale winery included concrete fermentation vats that are still used today and have proved ideal for fermenting Esk Valley’s award-winning red wines.

    The thick concrete walls of the winery, built into the hillside have also proven to be a stable and cool environment for maturing wines.
