About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

Wine & Cheese

Last Saturday saw us at Milawa, the Gourmet Region of North Eastern Victoria.

First stop was the Milawa Cheese Factory for lunch and a cheese tasting.

 
This was our lunch view. Beautiful!

 
They have a variety of cheeses and I tasted several, including the Brie. All were delicious.
There is also the cellar door for the King Valley Wood Park winery. We tasted a selection and Paul and I added to our collection. A winery to keep an eye on.
 
Our next stop was Brown Brothers Wines.

We all enjoyed our wine tasting, with several interesting ones being purchased. I sampled the white wines and Paul sampled the reds, ports and Muscat's. They also sell jams, with wine in them, yes I bought some, to bring home.

This is their shop and cellar door. Plenty of space and lovely and cool.

They have beautiful gardens and a restaurant. If you want to, you can have a picnic or just lounge on the been bags under the oak tree. If you are energetic there is chess or bike riding as well.
 
Our last stop was John Gehrig wines. This is a family owned and run winery, with Ross Gehrig being the 5th generation of wine makers. We had been told that their ports and Muscat's were very good. Paul and Matthew tasted a variety and debated the merits of them. Paul settled for both a port and a Muscat.
 
A lovely day out with family.
Bye for now,
Lilian.
