A Grape Adventure
Delighted to be free of the city, the M31 soon made its way through open paddocks, and farm fields of Melbourne's North. After a couple of hours on the road, the flatlands turned into the beginning of Victoria's high country. Once off the M31, the road towards Whitfield snakes its way through beautiful green farmlands and onto wine country sprawling with valleys. King Valley being the prominent destination for wine in the region.
After a 3hr trip, we arrived at our destination. Sitting on a grassy knoll, overlooking meadows with a fine view of the high country rests King River Cottage, the perfect spot to quietly sit and catch the last of the setting sun.
Our weekend was spent exploring the magnificent natural wonders nearby and indulging in the plentiful local food and wine on offer. The people of the humble little town made this trip truly unique, everyone was delightful and open, sharing a unique sense of community.
We were spoilt the entire time, our little cottage on the hill was such a treat to enjoy breakfast and afternoon wines as we disconnected from the hustle of the big smoke....
