Wine, Cider and Local Produce Tour
Join me on a wide, cider and local produce tour of the beautiful Victorian countryside. Start the day off in style by sampling the extensive range at St Annes Vineyard, and check out this beautiful building. Then some refreshment as we travel through the bush of Wombat State Forest where a local brewed tea or coffee is included. We pass Trentham Falls, stopping in for pictures (weather permitting!) on the way to another award winning winery for tastings of the cool climate wines. A scenic drive takes us to Daylesford Cider Company for a delicious and wholesome lunch, their seasonal menu provides fresh and locally produced choices for everyone, with dietary requirements being gladly catered for - please advise at time of booking! Once we have tasted their fabulous cider and admired the beautiful grounds we then head north of Daylesford for some mouthwatering and FairTrade chocolate treats. Through the Mineral springs region, we finish up at Captain's Creek Organic wines for a tasting and to hear about the organic wine making process. Drop off back to your hotel included.
