Famous Chefs: Graham and Al Brown

An amazing learning forum and lots of great Burgundies to share.  Heaven

This is an annual conference held in Hanmer Springs, North Canterbury, New Zealand.  All winemakers and viticulturalists worldwide are welcome.  We all gather to learn how to grow better grapes and make the best Pinot Noir from these grapes.  This year the guest speaker was Greg La Follette who has incredible scientific knowledge about vitculture and winemaking.  Most people specialise in one area not both; unlike Greg.  All delegates benefited immensely from his extensive knowledge.

Not only do we learn, share experiences and knowledge but we bring in our own incredible chefs; Al and Graham Brown who cook exquisite dishes for 3 nights.  We eat like we are kings and queens; food to die for.  

On top of this we all bring exciting wines from the world that we would like to share with like-minded colleagues.

Again what more can I say other than Heaven.
