Mitchelton Wines, Nagambie

Leaving Tahbilk Winery, we headed to our next stop just down the road, Mitchelton Wines, where we had booked a table for lunch.  The stunning architecture of the winery had enticed me almost as much as the menu at Muse, Mitchelton's restaurant.

After our special feast, we went up the imposing 55metre tower.

The tower also offered a bird's-eye view of the sloping roof main buildings of the winery and the modern wine making facilities next door.

....and checked out the long row of different species of grapes and the wine varietals that they produce.
The 90 minute drive back to the city in the late afternoon made for a really easy and enjoyable daytrip - one that I plan on doing again soon.
