Easter pilgrimage

Over Easter B and P and I went to Rutherglen to visit the wineries; in particular those wineries that grow and bottle my favourite wine - durif.

The weather was glorious and we had a good drive up on Friday, booking into the Victoria Hotel which was full up.

We visited a number of wineries, tasted a few wines, bought a few bottles and ate some nice meals. Saturday night at the hotel was a bit noisy, but despite the racket I slept well.

On the way home on Sunday we dropped in to Chiltern and visited the house Henry Handel Richardson lived in for eighteen months around 1876/77.
