Cloudy Bay – Pinot Noir Event

It was two and a half days of being immersed in Pinot Noir.  Not literally, thankfully, but I sure do know a lot more about this wine variety than I did before the Cloudy Bay 2014 Pinot Noir Event!  Don’t get me wrong, I could quite easily tell the difference between a red and a white wine, but being able to identify what region of the world a particular Pinot came from just by tasting it was (and still is!)…

Crossfit Blenheim – confessions of a dough-nut

Dough.  That’s what my kids call it.  It’s soft and squishy and if I thought that the Internet truly kept me anonymous and I wouldn’t run into you in the supermarket, I’d show you a picture of it.  It sits right around my middle, mostly, as well as hanging onto other places with it’s squishy cuddliness. …

This and that

Check out Riannon’s absolutely stunning eyes, what a little cutie! On Saturday we popped out to Yealands Winery to photograph the Ulysses Motorcycle club.  The wind was absolutely atrocious, but these guys soldiered on amazingly!  I think there must have been about 60 members who turned up and had a wonderful time trying Yealands wine and touring the winery.…
