We made it! (just)

... for something a bit more substantial than just little nibbles so I was glad it was lunchtime. We arrived at a gorgeous small house surrounded by vines and with a mix of animals in pens in the garden including wallabies. We got a tour of the site and were taken into the ‘back room’ areas where we could see all the machinery and tanks for producing the wine.
