Swirl of World August 2018

Swirl Of World 
Moray Tawse of Tawse Winery is hosting this event at the Brampton Golf Club. He will be introducing wines from around the world as well as his award-winning winery in Ontario's Niagara district. Additionally, 50 guests will be served a four course meal with appropriate wines paired with each course. If the chef's preparation is up to the wine standard we are in for a wonderful evening.

At the end of the evening I spoke with Moray and said that this evening had been one of the best over my 34 years at the BGC. The lobster appetizer, ahi tuna 1st, duck 2nd, and lamb final all served with various wines Prosecco, Chardonnay, Pino Noire topped off with a small scotch led us to a Uber and home. It was the best. 🍇

Lovely time, if a bit humid some days.

We had a delicious meal at the Zélé, their favourite local restaurant.
