Monday past, around 200 wine folks got together at Terroni’s Adelaide location to celebrate the glories of fermented grapes and raise a bit of money for our Canadian Sommelier contingent who’ll be making their way to Mendoza, Argentina for the Best Sommelier In The World Competition from the 15th – 19th of April this year. Thanks to everyone who turned out. It was a terrific event.
