SEVA Harvest Supper

A fantastic SEVA Harvest Supper last night at Oxney Organic Estate.  Excellent venue and great hospitality by Kristin and her team – a big thank you to Oxney. We were lucky enough to taste Oxney’s first release of their delightful 2014 English Sparkling Wine, which is being officially launched on Saturday. A big thank you also to the Garden Chef for the amazing food, including their bottle shaped pastry!

Many thanks to all those who attended.
