The Bright Angle
Thursday, 8 December 2011
Welcome to our new Social Media space.
Hopefully The Bright Angle will give you a comprehensive insight into our program at Rochford and will be interesting, informative and as the name suggests, express a degree of optimism innate in its author.
I feel the need to nurture this in its infancy. Like nurturing the vines just planted at the entry to Rochford there is hope for great outcomes. Those tiny vines already amaze me with their initial growth, held up by a string as they reach for the wire. With patience we wait for them to bear fruit in a few years but ultimately I expect they may outlive us all.
We are well into our summer events already and the three recent ‘A Day on the Green’ concerts were all fabulous. The joy, the freedom and the sense of engagement in the crowd were all palpable. Rain didn’t dampen any spirits.
More great concerts are coming in February, March and April 2012.
Our Movies in the Vineyard program for summer evenings has been substantially scaled up with a new big screen format, a truly exciting lineup of films and many more nights of screenings, commencing December 16th. As an avid movie lover I am again looking forward. Dusk descends, a spectacular sunset heralds an engaging experience, a wine or two serves to relax, children have space to roam and explore and a great movie transports you in the twilight. The whole becomes a memorable sum of its enriching parts.
I am also pleased to see new direction and some great new products added to our merchandise shop and these are available online with direct delivery to your door. This service complements our convenient and growing online wine sales with delivery Australia wide.
Indeed the products and experiences offered at Rochford are richly diverse and of interest to all ages. These have all been nurtured and developed upon the slender string of one pervading idea – to offer much more than just good wine and food.
To coincide with the launch of this social media space we are offering visitors to Rochford this summer the chance to win one of our products each month. The winners will be notified personally and posted on this page. Within the range of offerings winners could receive a case of wine, or lunch in our restaurant, or a balloon flight at dawn, or a wine tour, or a unique Segway experience, or family movie passes, or concert tickets to ‘A day on the Green’ at Rochford.
So do visit us and participate in our program during summer.
Also watch this space for regular updates.
