BOOTLEGGERS WINE TASTING

After a wine induced collaboration with Sydney based wine start-up Bootleggers, where we profiled how Australian men are expressing their personal style and taste through fashion and wine, we finally got a chance to celebrate. The stylish Men In This Town readers who registered for a chance to attend, got to sip on a 2008 Dal Forno Romano Amarone della Valpolicella, which retails at $549 a bottle. It was worth every bit. Thanks for everyone who came out and for the men featured over the past few weeks.
