Peppers Convent neared perfection as accommodation. The rooms were beautifully apportioned and decorated, as were the communal areas. Breakfast was splendidly generous and varied and the staff were all tremendously helpful and friendly. The slight downside was the wi-fi which refused to work and the minimal number of television channels available in the room, but these are minor complaints about an overall excellent experience.

... did manage to get a coffee and some nibbles at the Smelly Café but the sense we got is that the area mostly caters to Sydney yuppies.
With a target of tasting at four wineries we made a start, first at Adina (very nice Semillon) then at Gartelmann (lovely people and they even had a toy corner for the kids!! – but struggled to find much to like). By this time lunch was due and Sir James began complaining so we headed off in search of a ...

Next stop was the chocolate factory. So many fat young women in this shop!!!!!! I bought a chocolate bag for Jaimie next door and some things for mum.
Next stop was Hungerford Hill. While Jess and Dave tasted the wine, I had a look round. They had lots of cookery books - really up market ones too. And then I saw the Laduree sucre one!!! Beautiful - delicate green velvety cover with the trademark gold ...
