ANNUAL MARBELLA DUTCH BUSINESS CLUB HERRING PARTY
AT DIVOT GASTRO GRILL
Members of the Marbella Dutch Business Club held the 18th edition of their Herring Party at a new location: Divot Gastro Grill in Nueva Andalucía. In addition to the finest Dutch herring, elegantly dressed guests enjoyed other delicacies such as wild salmon, eel, caviar, canapés and delicious oysters. As is the custom every year, the “Golden Herring” was awarded to “a Dutch man” (male or female) who had made great efforts in Spain to promote “the good name of the Netherlands”. Another custom is that one of the ladies is awarded a prize for wearing the “best hat”. Dutch singer Ger Vos and a DJ were responsible for getting everyone onto the dance floor, ensuring a great party that (unfortunately) came to an end at midnight.
As part of another Herring Party tradition, some proceeds of the evening went to Cudeca, a charity organisation that provides professional medical care to patients suffering from cancer or other advanced diseases, as well as support to their families. A special thank you to Marbella Dutch Business Club for inviting Home & Life style Magazine to another beautiful event.
ELEGANT LAUNCH PARTY
FOR LUSH BLUSH WINE
Local man-about-town Paul Bramley recently launched his new wine, Lush Blush, at the Sea Grill in Puente Romano Beach Resort. The wine has already received the accolade of the highest point score rating of any rosé blush in the world. Paul, whose background is in construction and property develop ment, came up with the idea of launching a wine last year while on holiday with his daughter. He then set off for Provence where he visited various win
eries. Through a rigorous selection process he chose the grape for his wine and then blended it to make what he considers is the ultimate perfection in blush wine. Lush Blush is already being sold in several exclusive venues on the Coast, including many of the restaurants within Puente Romano itself.
