A June Dozen

We’ve been eating, drinking, testing and tasting and the fruits of our labours are coming here soon. Watch our video … perhaps you’ve visited these places too? Love to hear from you, John and Pip


Iconic wineries near Rutherglen

This delightful timber chest of drawers (above) appealed to me at Tuileries resort, vineyard and restaurant, Rutherglen, before we set off down the highway to visit two long-held favourites in the winery stakes, Campbells and Buller. Campbells (above left and right) looked great and impressive in the misty July morning and we happily purchased; Buller (bel0w) was more understated but the keen young sales assistant captured our attention with the Fine Old Tawny, the brilliant new conical bubbles bottle and a variety of red which was new to us: a Mondeuse. Note to self … chase after this wine and get some more. What a find!

There we were, enjoying a drink …

… in the 19th century pub, the Victoria Hotel at Rutherglen, when we happened to glance at the label on the bottle of the local brew, Beechworth Cider, and discover that some thought went into making it. Not a bad drop, either …
