G'day in a Glass

More than 250 wines (including, of course, darling Shirazes and Chardonnays), Australian grub such as lamb and seafood, silent auctions, wine paraphernalia, educational seminars and much more. The big-hearted Aussies even manage to make it for a good cause: All auction proceeds benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
