The weather forecast was not looking favourable for the Easter long weekend. Predictions of rain and cloud were strewn across the various weather broadcasts. Luckily they were wrong! For those not from Australia, The Hunter Valley is a well known wine region just a few hours north of Sydney.
Gorgeous skies for a Hunter Valley day trip - it was just perfect! Not too sunny, blue skies and no rain
The first of many wine tastings! Savannah Estate
Not a big wine drinker, but ended up buying a bottle of sparkling Moscato from here (girly wine!)
Loved the decorations they had going on - this one's a bottle opener I think, an old school one?
Gorgeous and quirky paintings they had inside the cellar door
Buying wine at the cellar door
Drayton's Family Wines
In the wine tasting room - old wine bottles
Old wine contraption
Pretty scenery - even though the vines are bare this time of the year
Red roses at the front of the vines - as a safeguard to any potential danger to the vines from pests (as I learnt!)
This was a gorgeous winery with beautiful views outside - they had plenty of samples of yummy flavoured olive oils, olives and relishes inside as well
Tintilla's most popular feature - always up for a cuddle and tummy rub, such a cutie!
