A long lunch at Jo Jo's featuring the wines of Stanely Estates

Over 50 people attended the Wine Room's first seriously fun wine and food event held recently at legendary local eatery, Jo Jo's.

Billed as a Long Lazy Vigneron's Lunch, we booked out the entire restaurant and were treated to the award winning wines of Stanley Estates from Marlborough, New Zealand.

The wines were introduced by owner and vigneron, Steve Pellett, originally from Canterbury in Kent, and were matched with a delicious lunch comprising of an array of dishes presented by the great team at Jo Jo's.

Steve spoke about his adventures with his wife Bridget driving in a Landrover from the North of Africa to the South and then planting a vineyard in the premium New Zealnd wine region, Marlborough.

Guests enjoyed his 2010 Sauvignon Blanc, which has won Gold Medals in New Zealand and the UK as well as a trophy in Australia at top wine competitions.

Also served was their excellent 2010 Pinot Gris and 2009 Pinot Noir and the relaxed lunch finished with a great range of cheeses served with our own wine the Southpaw Vineyard 2006 Shiraz from McLaren Vale in South Asutralia.
