A few weeks ago, my husband and I were looking for the perfect way to celebrate our 40-year anniversary. Of course, we wanted to try something that we have never done before together but we needed an experience which was close to home since we were to be meeting the kids the next day. Not to mention that it needed to be inexpensive. So we did a bit of research into it but we couldn’t find anything that matched our criteria. Luckily a few friends of ours recommended we look at some wineries in Victoria.

After some thorough research the best wineries in Victoria, we had decided we finally found the perfect location. We settled on winery which was only an hour or two from home so we managed to get there pretty quickly. When we arrived at the vineyard, the first thing we noticed was the beautiful grounds. The fields were stunning, probably one of the best views I’ve ever seen to be perfectly honest. My husband and I got to try out a wine tasting which I’d never done before. I’m no wine connoisseur but the wines available were delightful. I’m a bit of a sweet tooth so luckily there were a few dessert wines such as Moscato and Port which I was able to enjoy. We even got a few bottles to take home, as a souvenir for the kids.

Afterwards we had a late lunch, which we got to have by the vineyard. The staff were friendly and informative as they suggested some dishes for us. The food was exquisite and of course the drinks perfectly complemented the meals. As we enjoyed our dishes, we got to admire the scenery of the endless green fields. The vineyard seemed to be pretty popular with the children who were playing tag with each other amongst the grape vines. I could definitely see myself bringing my children and grandchildren back to the winery as it was family friendly and would probably entertain the children and adults alike.

I would highly recommend going to a winery on your day off with family or friends. You don’t need to be a wine enthusiast to enjoy the vineyards. However, it’s a great opportunity to broaden your mind and try a range of drink which you never though you would like. We had a lovely time, it was a simple and enjoyable day for our anniversary. I could not have imagined a better time with my husband.
