Family Wine Touring

Since we were in South Africa three years ago, we’ve been taking our kids on winery visits. They love it and so do we. It’s a great way to teach them to love wine and drink responsibly. We don’t drive on these trips. We get someone to take us there and back. And we find a great place in the wine country for a nice lunch. We visited four wineries today; Chandon to see how sparkling wine is made, Yerra Station, De Bortoli, and Tarrawarra for lunch. We were going to hit Coldstream Hills on the way back, but we decided to go to the Sanctuary and see some koalas and kangaroos instead. All in all, a wonderful day.

    You missed out on Coldstream Hills – my wife and I did a wine tour there last year, and thought the wine was tremendous!

      I had a feeling that was the one to go to. We had a white wine from there one night in sydney that was among the best aussie wines we had on our tripFred
