On the Wine team, Sarah Limacher, Rory Cornish of Gazebo and Alex Caillard of McWilliams/Echelon Wines went head to head with Jason Williams, Teddy Hepworth and Jamie Walker of the Cocktail team.

After winning the debate last year, the Cocktail team took a severe beating, all in the name of raising money for charity.

Guests voted for their favourite team after being bribed with hip flasks containing blue cocktails, champagne, red wine and and another cocktail which was only served to a select few.

A $10 donation at door included food and beverages with all proceeds going to the Animal Welfare League.
