Mr Percival’s

At Brisbane’s newest overwater bar you can drop in for a leisurely lunch on the deck, continue into aperitivo hour and enjoy spritz style cocktails to really set the scene then stay late with live music to ease you into the night. The food is “treasures from the sea”…a raw bar of caviar and oysters, small treats, a grill bar of seafoods, meats and vegetables. Bite size up to a full meal!

Seminal Wine Competition

Thrilled to see my oysters and piquepoul story published as a guest contributor in Jancis Robinson’s (UK) “Seminal Wine Competition”. Her Purple Pages website is the global Holy Grail of fine wine writing and wine knowledge authority, bar none.

Robinson says it is “a competition to find the best account of the seminal wine or wine experience that lit the wine flame for you”. My contribution was published on 7 September and you can read it at this link.
