Catriona Rowntree

Stephen Doyle

Madam, I have absolutely no idea who you are, but you are doing me a power of good.

No that's not true. In fact it is so not true that it could technically be called a lie. But the truth is, when MS Rountree turned up at Bloodwood with a film crew in tow, I wasn't lying when I said I hadn't the faintest idea who she was. That's what happens when you don't watch commercial television for a decade or so. However, I am a quick learner, and now realize that for the best part of that decade or so, Catriona has been wowing commercial television watching audiences across Australia and beyond with her work on Getaway and many other very popular TV spots. I also vaguely recall someone with a very similar sounding name hosting some JJJ programmes a while back before my tablets kicked in. Whatever the facts of the matter, and there surely must be some here I have overlooked, let's just say she doesn't travel unaccompanied. Not only that, but the totally charming and damn fine sport that she undoubtedly is, was tickled pink when I suggested she sit on her date..on the Bloodwood celebrity stool. Thanks Catriona, you're welcome at Bloodwood anytime you need a getaway.

(The bottle of Bloodwood Chardonnay, or one of many quite like it we prepared earlier, is available through the stunning Cellar Door section above where all our wines are hot, hot, hot at the moment and so are their prices, from a bargain  for the 2010 BMIT including taxes, to the absolutely stunning 2009 Pinot Noir at  until the end of this special promotion going forward.)
