Wine is bottled poetry

"Wine is bottled poetry". If Robert Louis Stevenson is right, Friday evening at Gem Appelle Designs will see the poetry literally flowing, with an incredible combination of design, decor, nibbles and, of course, wine.

This week sees Gem Appelle Designs showcasing Savina Lane Wines. The winery itself is located in Severnlea, in Queensland's Granite Belt, an area with a steadily growing reputation of interesting new wines. This month's featured vineyard has very limited production, creating hand-picked, hand-crafted wines. Savina Lane Wines currently produce six different varieties of wine and in 2014, their first releases, won awards for all six. So the opportunity to taste an array of this single vineyard's wines, is a rare and special event.

But it's not only about tasting the wine. Throughout the evening, there is the opportunity to discuss the wines and ask questions of the winemaker, relax and enjoy a few nibbles as well as the chance to purchase bottles of these limited releases.

As their name suggests, Gem Appelle Designs are not just wine-enthusiasts. By day, the showroom is an interior decorating consultancy owned and run by Grant Hiscock. The company offers a decorating service or colour consultation and a wide range of decorating pieces from statement pieces to everyday kitchen gadgets, Manchester, or lamps. As interior designers, they also 'dress' homes for sale or open homes. (A word to the wise it is also a great place to hold your bridal registry.) The interior decorators pride themselves in turning your "house into a home" through their effortless style and beautiful pieces.



As well as the regular wine-tasting events, Gem Appelle Designs boast award winning customer service and hold regular drawing or photography classes and information evenings, on topics such as renovations or showcasing particular artists. It is well worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page to discover what their next upcoming event is going to be (or snap up the early-bird priced tickets to their monthly wine-tasting events!)
