All the wineries in this region offer free tastings and maybe that is standard with vineyards worldwide but i was unaware of this fact until then..and we certainly took advantage of it (why had i never been to a vineyard before for free tasting? It was a gorgeous day with the sun a shining and actually quite warm..after all the cooler weather. Emma's boyfriend was nice enough to drive us around, it's a 1 1/2 hr drive aboot east of Melbourne..the scenery is beautiful with rolling hills. We went to 4 vineyards i do believe...all with varying lovely wines. I myself am not a wine connoisseur but i do enjoy a not too dry white wine..and i was sure to try enough to find it
We headed back to Melbourne for my last night in town. We had dinner and then went for a walk along South Bank, in the city centre. A lovely area by the river with restaurants, bars, cafes, grassy areas, boat cruises. We had had enough wine so were happy to finish our day with an ice cream and a tea...and our visit for that matter.
Emma dropped me off at the airport very early in the morning.
I had a fantastic week!! Emma and I picked up right where we had left off...like no time had passed, like true friends. I love that! Great conversation, great company, great comfort!
