Squashed Grapes - Launch Event (8th July 2016)


Time has flown since we officially launched Squashed Grapes back in July and what an experience it has been! Finishing the website was a very exciting time for us and the official Squashed Grapes launch event made it all so much more real.

The event, held at St Ali in South Melbourne was a huge success. In attendance were some of our loyal customers, suppliers and of course, wine enthusiasts. On arrival, guests were asked to pick their personalised Plumm Crystal wine glass from the entrance table before being shown the bubbly bar (dedicated solely to the pouring of bubbles of course)! The experiences didn't stop there, we had a dedicated tasting room set up with winemakers and suppliers showcasing some of their range, including wines from Sutton Grange (Bendigo, VIC), Hahndorf Hill (Adelaide Hills, SA) and Hugh Hamilton (McLaren Vale, SA). We also had wines on pour from from across the country including Tellurian (Heathcote, VIC), Medhurst (Yarra Valley, VIC), Bress (Harcourt, VIC), Vinteloper (Watervale, SA) and Clairault (Margaret River, WA).

The fun kept going with some live tunes from the amazing Glenn Ford & The Record Machine who truly rocked the house. A quick speech and thank you to everyone ended the formalities of the night before our little take home goodie bags starting disappearing into the night after a grapetastic launch!

We really couldn't have asked for a better night to officially commence our journey. The A huge thank you to everyone who attended, the winemakers and suppliers, the rocking band, Bar/D Up for capturing the night on film, Wayne Williams Photography for his amazing work behind the lens, St Ali and their team for making the whole experience so easy and fuss free and last but certainly not least, a massive thank you to our event management partner, The Good Event Co we definitely couldn't have done this without you!

Chin-chin everyone!
