Hello Quaffers!

What a fabulous food and wine month we’ve had with Vin-atics this time round! An awesome collection of wines from Spier Wines with some totally fabulous dishes and great guests – bet you wish you could have joined us!

Check out the Vin-atics Dinner with Spier Wines!
If you want to see all the fun we had, then take a look at our Vin-atics blog. Fun, frolics, fish pie, fondants, flippant remarks, fab conversations – all backed up and egged on by Spier’s Private Collection collection. If you want to read more about this awesome set of wines, then click here for all the notes and details.  And if you want to know more about this month’s sponsors, Spier, then click here  for more background information on this great brand.
Dinner Party Deluxe
We picked 4 dishes from the Vin-atics menu (click here for details of the recipes and the tasting notes on the wines) and I think we actually deserve a pat on the back as three of the four matches were perfect! When you read our report, you’ll see that we all went big time for the white wines on the night, so I think I shall be making the lamb knuckles this weekend to try with one of the reds – probably the Shiraz  – I’ll let you know how I get on!

Win a Case of Spier Private Collection Wines!
But don’t wait to see what I get up to, why don’t you just have a go yourself?! We’ve got a fabulous case of Spier Private Collection wines up for grabs to the person who sends us the best pics of them having a dinner party in their own home. All you have to do is
