August was a very busy month for us here at Princess Alexandra Retirement Village, with an array of interesting guest speakers, including our mayor, Barbara Arnott. We also enjoyed a fantastic wine tasting evening with Trevor from the famous Mission winery in Taradale.
The residents all enjoyed hearing the history of this amazing winery, which began life as a monastery, and has an amazing, rich history.
After the talk, everyone enjoyed cheese platters and wine and the opportunity to ask questions in regards to wine making. By the end of the evening, everyone was an expert in swirling their glass and tasting the bouquets in the wine!
