"Hi Matt and Staff,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to both you and your staff for the mammoth effort pulling together Chloe and Jordan's wedding ceremony in the Vines and reception in the winery Barrel Room. I work as a wedding planner at many venues in The Hunter and Newcastle and I found you and your staff to be the most supportive, friendly and efficient I have worked with in the area for a very long time.

Also congratulations Matt on delivering to 147 guests a mouth-watering menu with an exquisite array of canapes, entrees and mains. Even with so many covers the Grilled Atlantic Salmon and Lamb Tenderloin mains were cooked to perfection!

I will certainly recommend Calais Estate as a venue of choice and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Warmest regards,

Wedding Specialist and Business Organiser
