Hunter Valley


Hunter Valley is world famous for its excellent wines. It is a major tourist attraction as it is only 2 hours drive north of Sydney. Once you there and you enjoyed your wine tasting, excellent food and serene scenery you may wander why this flat hilly land is called a valley. To find the answer to this question you need to find the right sandy road that will take up high the the surrounding hills and if you lucky you will be viewing this vast landscape with the a matching hill group far on the horizon defining the valley.

Crooked River vineyard


Vineyard – Crooked River Wines

Last weekend we have visited Crooked River vineyard. Situated just outside Gerringong, few minutes from Kiama, it’s a great location for a relaxing lunch. The wine is very good although for my test a bit too fruity and the food in the café is superb.

As you can see from the photograph the vineyard boasts spectacular views.

Originally a dairy farm for the past 100yrs, the vineyard now produces over 30 varieties of table wines and ports. According to the owner all grapes are grown and the wine is bottled on the estate.
