A Wine Lover’s Diary, part 876: 50th Birthday Bash

Meg McGrath

Saturday, April 1st: Deborah and I were invited to celebrate Meg McGrath’s 50th birthday at a lunch at Erik Peacock’s Wellington Court Restaurant.


Meg’s partner, Phil Dowell, winemaker at both Angels Gate and Kew Vineyard, had made special bottlings for the event – as well as a welcome sparkling wine from Phil’s own company, Millésime.
