Cam’s blog – June 2019

Hello Eldertonians

I am fresh off a recent European jaunt, where I visited the Czech Republic, Germany and the UK.  It was great, if only because the Barossa is ice cold and sometimes wet at the moment and it was almost summer over there.

The Czech Republic is just beautiful and full of delivery trucks with Elderton bottles on the side of them.

Also it had glorious creamy beers that David was very forthcoming with.

Then it was off to sunny Germany.  Working around Frankfurt I managed to find a little 747 there. My boys were very jealous of this.  It was a great going back to the old stomping ground.

Next stop was the UK, staying in central London it amazing to see how the 1% of 1% live.

But I did manage some work doing an incredible portfolio tasting with our long time importer there Fields, Morris & Verdin.  Here I am with a fellow Aussie – Hunter (Franklin Estate) coming up for air during the tasting.

It wasn’t all work though, the group did manage a few cheeky pints.  This is a before photo.
