A couple weeks ago I sent in tons of photos of myself drinking wine in a 'wild' fashion, in hopes of winning one of the golden tickets to the Wine Gem Wine Safari day... little did I know I would leave the trip with more 'wild' wine photos from one day than I had managed to accumulate over the past year.
It was an awesome trip, organised by T from Siris Vintners (@SirisVintners) and Gem from AndUnion's Wine Gem tasting sessions (www.andunion.com).
We started with Weiss and unfiltered lager for breakfast, or a Bavarian Breakfast as Wes and Victoria called it. They were sneakily disguised (from the cops) in robot party cups, which started getting slightly soggy, only meaning we had to drink the beer faster. It was cold though, and we were thirsty – so this was no problem.
The rest of the story is best told through these pictures...
