Melbourne: The Yarra Valley Wineries


before you continue please return to my previous melbourne post HERE. because i had some time in between my hectic work yesterday and feel obliged to share some informative info to all of you so that at least you learn something from this humble blog of mine. so go read about the fun facts about The Little Penguins there (which i actually got from Wikipedia but whatevs just read ok.

now, i know you are getting sick with this. i promise this is the last (but i think there’s one more. pls dont abandon my blog. please… )

it was our last day. but our flight was a midnight flight so we had a full day for another tour around the country. we chose to go for the wineries at the yarra valley because we were thirsty :p and the weather decided to act gloomy. it drizzled, it rained, and it was freaking cold!!! so what’s better than to warm up with some errr….. booze?! and some cheese. owh…. and some lurrrrve with other friendly visitors?!

but before that we stopped at menzie’s creek to pick up some of the coach passengers who went on the old steam train called puffing billy. although we didn’t go for the ride but we had time to take some photos with it. and i know i’ve posted this picture before but it deserves double appearance. so here it is!!

our first winery was a place called Fergusson Winery and it was our lunch stop. being a sakai i thought we’ll see those beautiful romantic wineries like those photos we usually see with fresh grapes all ready to be plucked and pop into the mouth. until we saw this…..
