Autumn Wine Tours – Perfect!

The time is now.

I am happy to stick my neck out here.

Autumn is by far the best time to get out to the vineyards and taste some delicious wine. So I am happy to pronounce – Autumn Wine Tours – Perfect!

It’s the cool misty mornings. The autumnal hues of the vine leaves. Vibrant green. Gently fading to golden yellow, magenta, and everything in-between.

Due to the cooler autumn temperature, the red wines are just right for tasting. Subsequently, the natural cool climate acidity ensures that the wines are well balanced and mouth-wateringly delicious!

Autumn Wine Tours – Perfect!

In the warmer sub-regions of the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay have already been picked. In the cooler, higher altitude areas, picking is just starting.

Late ripening grapes like Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are still enjoying the warm days and cool nights. Picking will start over the next week or two.

One of the coolest wine regions in Victoria, and indeed Australia, is the majestic and mysterious Macedon Ranges.

I am looking forward to a few upcoming Perfect Day Tours of the Macedon Ranges. A slow drive over Mount Macedon is a joyful experience. Due to the high altitude and cool climate, the deciduous trees put on a majestic display.

Autumn – Cool Climate Gardens

For those interested in the cool climate horticulture of the Macedon Ranges, I could recommend a visit to catch up with Stephen Ryan at Dicksonia Rare Plants at Mount Macedon.

Those of you who are mad for Hellebores, (winter roses), should go no further than visiting the fabulous  Post Office Farm Nursery

Proprieter Peter Leigh is regarded as the ultimate expert on the hellebores species in Australia.

Whatever ‘floats ya boat’ – we look forward to hosting you on a Perfect Day Tour!
