Uncle Bill’s Wedding.

Went to my Uncle Bill’s wedding in Masterton, it was gorgeous in his back garden, restricted to family… And the weather was simply fantastic… Just like the champagne. Which was only the first of many fine wines we enjoyed, as the reception (and Bill’s b’day party) was held out at the Murdoch James winery, fantastic… So much good food and a really great riesling… Also favoured the cab franc.

We dropped by Penny & Dave’s (my cousin and her partner) place after the party, they own an apple orchard, and make lots of cider, and have started growing olives – they live in a huge barn, it’s really quite wonderful, with an extension made of rammed earth bricks… And delicious sweet juicy apples out the door.
