As well as red and white wine, we had grapes and crackers to enjoy with our cheese!

The Apricot and Almond Cream Cheese was a definite favourite and finished within minutes of being put on the table!

Many of the students then headed of to a BBQ at the beach to say a final farewell to some of our students who graduated that day!

Wine Tasting!! 18th October

Yesterday we hosted a Wine Tasting activity for our students!

The tastings were at 2pm and 5.30pm so both our morning and afternoon students could enjoy a few drinks after finishing class!

We had 5 wines to try; a mix of White, Dessert, Rose and Red!

Our selected wines were: Chardonnay (Eaglehawk), Moscato (Gossip), Rose (Sacred Hill), Shiraz (Eaglehawk), Merlot (Black Label).

The students then had to guess the alcohol percentage, price and country where the wine was from!

Wine

Mario proved to be quite the wine connoisseur, guessing almost everything right!

 

A fun time was had by all 🙂
