Yarra Valley

Today we went to the Yarra Valley to see and taste some good old Aussie sparkling. The Yarra Valley is 50 klms from Melbourne and even less for us - about half an hour. First stop was Domaine Chandon - some lunch, a tour of the wine making facilities and some tasting....The next photo is a view over the valley. It was raining and quite cold. We also stopped into Yering Station - another winery in the region. The Yarra Valley is a very young grape growing region and the wineries are all very modern with large glass walls with a great view! And I have never seen it so green - surely the drought is over????

The final stop was into Yarra Glen for some warm refreshments...

Vicki, I'm really enjoying your daily tours with your exchange student. We've earmarked some spots for our next visit to Vic.

The drought must be over. If it doesn't stop raining I think we'll need to get together to build an ark. :) I've been enjoying your blog seeing all the Melbourne sites, even if they are all home to me. :) I hope your exchange student is enjoying her stay and she isn't too home sick.
