Hunters Hill Food & Wine Festival 2018 – Recap

Coinciding with the very warm weather, our building team, Ian and Richard, turned up on Friday morning (19th January) to fix the shadecloth across the roof of the terrace extension.

No room at the Shady Tree Inn

While recently enjoying a lovely lemon tart from Racine Bakery in Orange accompanied by our Botrytised Sauvignon Blanc Dessert wine and savouring the way it complimented those strong, tangy citrus flavours, my thoughts turned to Christmas and one of my absolute seasonal favourites – the Plum Pud. From past experience I can definitely say that our Boree Lane “Sticky” and […]
