A jazzy fair of food and wine

Getting into the swing of things and showing off the engraved glasses that will be given to wine buffs at this Sundays Lismore Wine Fair is Our Kids fundraising officer Rebekka Battista (front) with Lismore Jazz Club members (l-r) Frank Williams, Michael Bird and Bruce Worrall.

We cant think of a better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than quaffing fine wines, nibbling on deli delights and swinging to live jazz all in the name of charity.

The Lismore Wine Fair this Sunday, September 10, is a fundraiser for Our Kids, which raises money for medical equipment for the childrens ward and special care nursery at Lismore Base Hospital. Held at the Left Bank Caf, the event will feature more than 80 Australian and New Zealand wines from notable wine growing regions such as the Margaret River, Hunter Valley, McLaren Vale, the Barossa, Langhorne Creek and many more. Not only can you try as many drops as you like, but you can also order discounted wines on the day direct from the producer.

Menins will be supplying a beautiful selection of deli foods to complement the wines, while the Lismore Jazz Club will be in full swing, playing soothing live jazz to enhance the mood.

We have wine to satisfy your nose and delicious gourmet nibblies to tempt your tastebuds, and now we have live jazz to provide food for the ears as well, said Our Kids fundraising officer, Rebekka Battista. Its a day to tantalise all the senses and because its for charity, you can indulge to your hearts content and walk away feeling positively altruistic.

For those who prefer ale, Coopers will also have a range of boutique beers to taste, which you can also order on the spot. Entry to the event is a ridiculously cheap $15, and you receive an engraved glass on entry to keep for wine sampling. Youll also go in the draw to win a wine bar fridge donated by the Hoolihan family and a collection of wine and food books donated by Dymocks.

The Lismore Wine Fair runs from midday to 4pm. To book phone 6620 2705 or simply turn up on the day.

The winner of The Echos Lismore Wine Fair competition is Doug Fraser of Goonellabah.
