Unlike the federal election this weekend – we had two winners.
One for the whites, and one for the reds.
Wine that is.
But what is a “wine in the bag” or blind wine tasting event? Well, this is how New York Wines have described it,
“We don’t wear blindfolds, or even Lone Ranger masks. A blind tasting simply means we have no idea what specific wines we are tasting. We usually know the varietal (or type of wine) and the vintage (year the grapes were harvested), and a few (but not most) competitions include the price category as well. But we never know the brand, rarely the country or region of origin; and we never see a bottle, even in a brown paper bag (because the capsule could give away the winery’s identity)”
For our event, we knew the brand and type of wine and it went from there. There were three bottles of white – and three bottles of red!
Respect and thanks go to Glen Urbani for his organisation of the #wineinthebag event for us; it’s an awesome concept, and lots of fun!!
And as he said, “A big thank you needs to (also) go to Luke Kelly the manager at the pub (Hyde Park) who bent over backwards to help set up the event. Top bloke! And Stewie on the night for his fantastic service.“
The Hyde Park service was perfect indeed. From the specially selected menu, to the help with our wine selection for the “wine in the bag” concept, they helped create a relaxed, fun atmosphere for us winelovers to play, where nothing was too much trouble.
Big congratulations go to Sonia and Litsa for their respective wins…

It was entitled “24 Things Women Should Stop Wearing After Age 30”, and it triggered Maximum Eye-Rolling from everyone who took the time out to read it. Written by Kallie Provencher for RantChic.com, this “article” (I use the term loosely) highlighted things such as “leopard print”, “graphic tees”, and “short dresses” (because “By this age, women should know it’s always better to leave something to the imagination”).

So, age is no longer an increasing number, it’s a decreasing one. And her time left has been determined by a slew of tests. Her countdown is predicated on exam results and the duration of her life will be decided on what “the rulers” deem to be her: merits, intelligence, looks and charisma. So far, so contemporary.
