Vinous delights for St Patrick

Happy St Patrick's Day! We drove past a particularly happy CĂ©ilidh in central Melbourne; but we were on the way to the wineries of the Yarra valley.

20 years ago I bought 2 gorgoeus bottles of Yarra Yering pinot noir. And today I actually went to the vineyard itself. What a joy the tasting was as I looked out to the vines surrounded by the Northern Divide mountains! And I came away with a bottle of the Dry Red No 1, 2004. One bottle only- it is somewhat expensive. But another top tip from Bubb for the third sector's wine lovers! You can get a bottle from Berry Bros!
