Representing Hally at the Presentation Dinner were Chad McNamara, Steve Kabaj, Manuel Rooney and Taliah Power. The Dinner was held at 66 on Ernest, a fine-dining restaurant powered by Brisbane’s best hospitality students from the TAFE Queensland South Bank campus. Our team enjoyed an evening of good conversation, delicious food and of course excellent wine.
Steve had this to say; “It was a fantastic night of celebrating Queensland wine and the passionate people of the industry. We’re thrilled to see our local wineries grow and succeed, and excited to offer world-class labelling capability right at their doorstep.”
Congratulations to all the winners, and a big thank to the organisers for a wonderful event celebrating our local wine industry.
