It’s that time of the year again, where all us Genites get together for our annual long-weekend getaway. Beats the hell out of a bottle of crap booze for Christmas we reckon.
This year had us roadtrippin’ our way up to The Hunter for 2 nights of great food, wine, late nights, beautiful scenery, more wine, handmade chocolates & cheese, oh and did we mention wine?!
Our team has expanded quite some bit since last year so we chose Cypress Lakes Resort and spread ourselves out across half of the villa’s up there. Although diluting us down didn’t seem to work…
Saturday was jam-packed starting with an 8:30am champagne breakfast which went down surprisingly well! We saw some beautiful wineries, tasted some great wines (& learnt that 2014 was a great year for Shiraz in the Hunter!) sampled some incredible chocolate, played a few games of boule and even visited an organic distillery – tasting spirits via test tube!
Safe to say there were a few of us who made the journey home with sore heads on Sunday.
We’ve all come to look forward to these Genii weekends and it was great to have some newbies along with us this year. Who know’s how many of us there may be next year! Onwards & upwards!
