10.05.09: Great day in our winery hopping tour of Healesville. The Yarra region is one of the famous wine areas in Australia, and also the enemy of the Hunter Valley, that we visited near Sydney! We visited a few spots. We started with Bertolo, which was not great, then headed to a cheese factory. Pure heaven for a girl in the land of cheddar: loads of goat cheeses and cow cheeses. we couldn't help but buying few for some nice aperitifs!

We did a tour of the Chandon domain (from Mot and Chandon) and bought some sparkling white (hey! They are not allowed to call it Champagne!!), then bought another bottle of red in St Hubert, then white  in Coltream Hill and another white in Waggamate. We calculated the numbers of day we had before going to NZ to have one bottle a night! In Waggamate, you could admire the sunset with a great view and had a nice chat with the owner...who obviously had Irish roots. We finished the day with some good TV..but no wine..I guess we had enough!!
