We like to visit The Smaller Wineries
We start at Punt Road Winery a friendly and welcoming Award Winning Winery owned by the Napoleone Family that have been Orchardists in the Yarra valley since the 1940's. They planted their first vineyards in 1983 and since become highly regarded for their Yarra Valley Punt Road label. The have now moved to include hand-crafted cider.
Next Cold Stream Hills Winery founded by Renowned Wine Writer James Halliday in 1985.
Next Yarra Yering Winery one of the oldest and most beautiful vineyards. The wine realeased in 1973 by owner/winemaker Dr Bailey Carrodus gained an international reputation for quality and individuality to great critical and commercial success to date.
From here to Warramate Winery a small family run winery with vines that are dry-grown hand pruned and harvested.
Followed by Dominique Portet Winery a centuries old wine making family. The Portet family holds possibly an unmatched record in the Australian wine industry. Dominique is the ninth generation in his family to be committed to wine making. His family has had links with the wine industry since 1720 in his native Bordeaux.

Now if time permits we visit Balgownie Estate Vineyard established by the now legendary winemaker Stuart Anderson in 1969. This vineyard was the first vineyard planted in the Bendigo district more than 80 years ago. This is one of Australia's great small vineyard famed for its long lived Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
Last is finishing off. We tour back to Melbourne the back way across Christmas Hills and Kangaroo Ground.

Between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago, some humans discontinued their nomadic hunting and gathering and settled down to farm. Grain was the first domesticated crop that started that farming process. The oldest proven records of brewing are about 6,000 years old and refer to the Sumerians. They had discovered a "divine drink" which certainly was a gift from the Gods....
