Bancroft Autumn Tasting 2012 - Pizarro Restaurant

After a long day tasting wine, there is nothing better than an ice-cold beer. Fortunately Pizarro's is only a short stroll down the road from the office so we didn't have to wait that long to quench our thirst. Shortly after we were back on the wine that was left over from the tasting.
