• Al Brown and James Millton

    Al returned for a second weekend with James Millton of Millton Winery in Gisborne.  We will not reveal which wine matchings were more perfect than those of last week. We will say the entire weekend was a roaring success and we thank everyone who attended, and our hosts Al and James, for a wonderful end to our 2012 Food and Wine program.
