Morvino trade tasting at the Mount Nelson

This small trade tasting was held in the famous Ocean room at the Mount Nelson Hotel on Monday night and we had such fun catching up with the wines, and friends from wine farms we know and love.  This was accompanied by good canapés made by the Mount Nelson kitchen, they did  very good smoked salmon on melba toast and pulled pork rolls amongst others
