April was a busy month for the team at Howard Park and MadFish Wines, one that brought with it an array of exciting events where we were able to be a part of the local community and support some of our favourite local events.
Wine Loft at the Queens Hotel | Featuring Howard Park Wines
“True friends don’t care if your house is a mess, they care if you have wine. So rather than tidy, bring them to our pop-up cellar door in the Wine Loft.”
This was the motto for Wine Loft event at the Queens Hotel in Highgate, Perth on April 21. Throughout the night, guests were given the chance to taste 25 wines from more than five Pemberton wineries, as well as a delicious selection of cheese and freshly shucked oysters. As one of the five featured wineries chosen to showcase the incredible Pemberton Wine Region, Howard Park Wines featured the Flint Rock Chardonnay, Flint Rock Shiraz, Porongurup Riesling, Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon and Miamup Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. The event - supported by the Perth Royal Wine Show in partnership with the Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia - was a fun way to demonstrate the outstanding quality of cool-climate wines produced in the famed Pemberton region.
Margaret River Pro | Sponsored by MadFish Wines
It has become somewhat of a tradition for MadFish wines to sponsor the 2017 Drug Aware Margaret River Pro surfing event, which brings some of the world’s leading surfers to one of the most renowned surfing beaches in our very own backyard. The event, which is in its 31st year, is held annually over 11 spectacular locations, among them Hawaii, Tahiti, California and South Africa. In the Margaret River leg of the tour in April, we made ourselves at home in the Corporate Surfers Lounge during the competition, which saw incredible athletic performances from top ranked male and female surfers, culminating with John John Florence and Sally Fitzgibbons taking home the titles for their respective heats. It was here that we recognised all the incredible volunteers who assisted in making the event what it was at the Telstra Frontline Services Sundowner. As always, we loved being a part of the Margaret River Pro, which brings guests from all over the world to enjoy our stunning South West region and continues to support the local community
Mellen Event | Sponsored by MadFish Wines
Perth’s Kings Park was buzzing with excitement on April 12, as music lovers gathered to see legendary acts Blondie and Cyndi Lauper perform live at A Day on the Green. As a sponsor for this incredible sold out event, we brought along 20 competition winners to enjoy the night and, of course, indulge in MadFish wine. Being the last Mellen event of the year, it’s safe to say that the assortment of international acts combined with the presence of various local businesses made for a terrific end to the music season.
The Left Bank Wine Club | Featuring Howard Park Wines
More than 50 guests attended the Left Bank Wine Club event at The River Bar on March 30, where the Wine of the Month was Howard Park’s Flint Rock Chardonnay and Flint Rock Shiraz. Here guests were welcomed with a glass of our MadFish Vera’s Sparkling wine and treated to tastings of the Howard Park wine range. This event was the perfect opportunity for wine lovers to learn more about our Western Australian winery in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
