A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting a friend in Margaret River, Western Australia and celebrating her wedding. It was a lovely intimate occasion. Throughout my trip I didn’t take too many photos, surprising for me, but the focus wasn’t a blog post, it was my friends.
The wedding feast was amazing, it was a kind of pot luck dinner, everyone was happy to contribute a salad, the cake, some meat, bread etc. It was a real community event, and all throughout the evening more food kept appearing.
Once we recovered from wedding parties, wine tasting was a must. Carpe Diem was recommended to us. The man who worked there had such a passion for sharing wines, that each of the 16 wines had it’s own story, as though we were being lead down the rabbit hole with each sip.
The wines were divine. Each had their own characteristics, various levels of dryness, and tannins. I purchased 2 bottles at the end, and had I had more room in my luggage, I would have got more.
Obviously once we had bought wine to drink, a cheese platter was a must. I love the addition of a fruit, or paste to sweeten a cheese platter, we bought local Margaret River cheese and with my friends abundance of basil growing, we made a chunky pesto dip.
