Gala Dinner, Marysville Sparkling Wine Festival, Lake Mountain

On the eve of the Melbourne Cup, 150 guests gathered at the Lake Mountain Alpine Resort for the presentation of awards for Australia’s best sparkling wines.

Set in the strong landscape of skeletonized trees killed by the heat of the bushfires of Black Saturday, 2009, this was a striking venue.

The wines were accompanied by a gourmet dinner and the music of Jazz Notes, playing a range of vocal and instrumental jazz along with some pieces from the pop repertoire.
