    The evening was a great success even though we were competing with U2 and Bono playing at the same time at the Brandenburg Gate.  The feedback was excellent; brilliantly made boutique wines from the very special Marlborough region of New Zealand. I’d like to thank everyone who attended and the hotel for their great service and support. Photographs are provided courtesy of
