Visiting the school recently were Murray & Chaise McHenry of McHenry Hohnen Wines, Margaret River, Western Australia. Murray also, along with David Hohnen, was responsible for starting Cape Mentelle Wine, Margaret River in the early 1970’s, and subsequently, Cloudy Bay Wine, in Marlborough, New Zealand. Murray spoke to the students about McHenry Hohnen Wines, and Margaret River, which is a really beautiful part of the world, and also the lovely café they run overlooking the ocean, and their wine bar, ‘Steves’, in Perth. Pictured with Murray & Chaise at Ballymaloe, are Anthony Tindal and Pascal Playon of Tindal Wine Merchants. We are looking forward to also welcoming back to Ballymaloe, David Hohnen, for our McHenry Hohnen Margaret River event in East Cork, on 27th September 2012 – more details here and along with a great wine tatsing from a super winemaker, we will also have a number of events that day as well, including surfing in Ballycotton Bay and a cricket experience on the lawn at Ballymaloe with the East Cork Cricket Club, pictured below – finishing with Ted Berner’s Wildside Catering ‘Fire Cooking’ Harvest Supper – bringing Margaret River to East Cork!
