Three hot couples and a Giveaway




I've probably mentioned this only a squillion times before, but I went to boarding school with a girl whose parents owned a winery in the South West of Western Australia.  Where all the good wines are produced.  If only I'd known at age 13, just how important the good stuff would be in my adult years.  I would've made a concerted effort to become life long besties with that girl.

Sadly, we drifted apart and she's not on Facebook therefore I can't find her to reconnect and suck up.

But all is not lost, as I met the obliging Marketing Manager of another West Australian winery at the recent Good Food & Wine Show - Plantagenet's Omrah Wines. 

Back in ye olde days when I first discovered wine, I started as a red-only girl.  Then I swapped to white-only, for no apparent reason.  And in the past few years I've started to rely on enjoy both red and white - because I'm all for a total open door, non-discrimination policy when it comes to my wine consumption these days.

So back to Plantagenet's Omrah Wines and why you should be even more excited about them than I am.

Thanks to having all my senses and faculties (it was early) at the start of my wine sampling journey, I managed to talk my way into six of Plantagenet's Omrah Wines for a giveaway.

Now I've got your attention...

I have sampled all of these fine wines.  Not from the giveaway bottles, don't worry.

I have honestly enjoyed all of them.  And it's good to know that I can head to my local bottleshop and buy a bottle for around $20 or less.  That's very important in my ongoing struggle to balance quantity AND quality.


Behond, three of the hottest, most in demand couples I know:











To win:

1. Follow this blog, so that you can listen to me whine about having to part with all that wine

2. Follow Omrah Wines on Facebook.  Where else would one go to gush over them?

3. Comment below with your favourite wine accompaniment.

It goes without saying that mine is more wine, and also cheese.  Cheese served on by George Clooney.

  3. I enjoy almost any food with my wine, but if I'm having a bit of a social gathering, especially out the back in nice weather, my favourite would be a cheese platter with water crackers.

  4. I like olives and nuts when drinking my wine.

  5. You had me at Omrah .. all class here Cheese Twisties !

  6. My favourite wine accompaniment is a straw. It looks so much classier than just drinking straight from the bottle. *grin* No, really, my favourite accompaniment to a white is a hot day, and a cold day and open fire for a nice red.

  7. Cheese with homemade quince paste goes down wonderfully with some delicious wine.  There is no better way to spend a girls night in (even if I am alone!)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Cheese matches with wine,
    And they seduce me just fine.
    They go down with ease,
    So to Hubby I say, “yes, please”!

  9. I didnt feel like wine tonight til i saw this. Might need a few glasses now, and the perfect red will of course go with the perfect steak.

  10. Wine can only be accompanied with misbehaving children. And since I'm 'blessed' with the aforementioned misbehaving children...... a wine is in order. STAT!

  22. I've never been a wine drinker until recently. Hubs prefers a red, me i prefer a white although i think that might be the teenage wipe outs on cheap red cask wine that make me shudder about going there again. 

    I enjoy having wine with the girls along with some cheeses, fruits and of course before the end some chocolate lol

  26. My favorite is anything taste good with the wine! seen as how I prefer chocolate (no i am not addicted to it, just because I could eat a family sized chocolate to myself?) I love to have a good quality mud cake with a nice glass of red wine. Been a long time since I have done that!
