First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers and suppliers for their fantastic support in 2010. We are well aware that you all have a choice of where you buy and sell your fine wine and we really appreciate the fact that, for so many people around the world, Farr Vintners is their number one wine source.

Further to Stephen Browett's blog "Kiwi Chardonnay takes on the World" of August this year, we are happy to post these notes from Paul Brajkovic of Kumeu River on a similar theme.
We often think the best match with good white Burgundy is crayfish and we are lucky that Milan has a friend that likes to swap wine for crayfish. Depending on the market price of the crays we normally get a case of crays for 1 or 2 cases of Kumeu River.

Oliver East and I hopped on the Eurostar to Brussels at the end of last week for another of our annual First Growth dinners with Belgian friends, a group of real super-gastronomes! This time the venue was the great Restaurant Bruneau (www.bruneau.be) and the theme was Chateau Margaux.
