We ordered our meals and a 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, which matched nicely with the colours of the vine leaves of the alfresco dining area...
...our range of delicious sharing plates: Crispy whiting, Seared Scallops...
...Pumpkin Doughnuts and Mandarin Arancini...
...and my amazingly tender Braised Beef Short Rib.
After our special feast, we went up the imposing 55metre tower.
The views stretched out far beyond the rows of vines and poplar trees, past the adjacent trees lining the river, to the mountain ranges in the distance
We could even see Darwin! Not really.
Back on ground level, we wandered along the banks of the mighty Goulburn River...
....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.
