Saturday 21st January 2017


Today was a first for Daniel. He told us he'd never been to a winery! ("Vinery Virgin"!)

So this morning we took him to 3 in the Bowral region. First stop was Centennial Vineyards, a large imposing place, with nice wines & friendly staff. Next stop was Bendooley Estate; Geoff & I went there last week looking for books not wines. We didn't get to taste their wines as the cellar door was full of females on a hen's party. We decided on a third one, which happened to be empty: Mount Ashby Estate; very quaint.

Lunch was in the village of Burrawang, at the hotel with a view of the valley. On the way back Geoff & Daniel wanted a Guinness, so I left them at the Scottish Arms.

Our winery tour was also a way to show Dan some of the area. He seemed quite impressed with what he saw, and expressed an interest in seeing more sometime.

The Burrawang Hotel had been recommended to us, but I think that it was for the view not the food.
