Postcard from Australia.
It's not often one draws the bedroom curtain to find a
bunch of kangaroos outside. Staying in a chalet inthe Jarrah forest in the Margaret River wine
region of South West Australia gives much scope for wild life observation; fortunately
no nasty crawly things so far. The chalet is on the Island Brook estate, a
boutique winery in this gorgeous part of Australia. And I'm blogging after a
day around some of the finest wineries Australia has to offer!Highlight was Cullens. Would have bought some
but the helpful wine taster in chief said it’s cheaper in the UK and gave me a
list of the stockist! Their Chardonnay is a world beater.
On holiday in Australia (every good CEO deserves a break,
even me!) and arrived in Perth after spending a while in the Hunter valley wine
region. On a farm as it happens. And so lots of wine tasting and good food.
