|Gosh we have been busy. Sharon Gage has taken over as out full-time manager and is faultlessly supported by Taylor, Jenna, Sarah and Bella. Kate and her team continue to man the kitchen. This has been such a pleasurable marriage of food and wine. The tourist and hospitality formula is a winner.
The Grapest Fun Run was a massive success with about 600 visitors. We will repeat the event next year although under our own banner. Keep your eyes out for announcements.
Our Scenic Rim Eat Local Week Degustation Long Lunch on June 30 was superb. Seventy-two fortunate guests sampled the 5-course masterpiece of culinary delights created by Kate Raymont. She matched the ingredients perfectly to five of our Estate wines. Every course was explained as it was served and guests were able to gain an intimate appreciation of the history of the Overflow, its wines and its ethos. Fabulous day. Dale had her 75th birthday celebration too.
Javier Codina and his creative team descended upon the Estate on July 7 for our third “Moda in the Vines”. Gorgeous Spanish tapas, freshly prepared paella and local ice creams were complemented by music all afternoon from Jazz Train.
We’ve been open seven days every week during school holidays and gratifyingly busy. Whilst there is no truth in the adage .. “ you build it .. they’ll come”, it has been a real winner for us. Thanks to every visitor for your trust and support.
