16 Two Sisters Food & Wine Bar’s Meet the Maker events are showcasing some of the state’s finest boutique liquor producers. Owner of the Goodwood Road bar, Nicole Sheehan, says supporting local producers is important. “It is imperative that we support independent winemakers so they have an oppor tunity to showcase their wines in a boutique setting,” Ms Sheehan says. “Our wines are not available in large bottle shop stores and are often family businesses.” She says the first of the Meet the Maker series had a focus on women in wine. “ Women in Wine in Goodwood is a collaboration of energy driven women who share a passion for wine, local community and suppor ting women in business.” “It is amazing to support other women in business, to have a sounding board for the challenges that can arise in business, often discussed over a glass.” About 40 people attended the event, which launched the locally produced wine, Poppy the Frenchie. The French-styled rose is the brainchild of mum and daughter winemaking team Julie and Paige Cooper. The wine was named after Poppy the French Bulldog - Julie’s beloved pet. “Poppy comes to the Goodwood office and many would see her face staring out of the office window wanting to join them strolling the footpath,” Julie Cooper says. The bar has also held Meet The Maker events showcasing Down the Rabbit Hole wines and the Shifty Lizard Brewing Co. For more information, check out the Two Sisters Food & Wine Bar’s Facebook page.
