2015 Wine Bottling Weekend
AEA staff from around Australia joined Phil Hitchock, expert winemaker, on his farm and winery in Hunter Valley for the second year in a row!
Arriving Friday night, staff kicked off the weekend with a delicious barbeque on the farm followed by a wine sensory challenge where staff were expected to put all their senses to the test.
Following a night filled with many laughs and maybe too many beers, on the Saturday morning staff enjoyed a hearty breakfast before heading over to Phil’s winery to assist him in bottling and labelling his Pinot Noir.
In the afternoon, AEA staff visited some local wineries and a brewery in Maitland before ending the night with a good old fashioned game of cricket.
The highlight of the trip was (once again) taste testing the Pinot Noir!
A special thanks to Phil and Scarlett for organising yet another enjoyable and memorable trip!
