12 October 2010weddings and medals

Its been a bit exciting of late for us here at Mt Aspiring Wines (you know - the home of '36 bottles'!)

In the recent New Zealand International Wine Show 2010 we received a Silver medal for the Pinot Noir 2008.  That's our second Silver for this lovely wine, and it is definitely improving with age!

Then at the start of October Jane and I took off to Rarotonga for a little tropical R&R, with much of the family in tow.  It was, as far as most of the others thought, a chance to celebrate Jane's birthday.  But we had a surprise in store - we turned it into our wedding.  A lovely sunny day, by Muri lagoon with a reception at Sails Restaurant.  It was fantastic.

Have to say that Sails Restaurant is a great place to dine, not matter the occasion.  So if you are ever in Rarotonga (and I recommend going there) definitely go there at least once for lunch or dinner (or even a cocktail sitting right on the beach).
