After thoroughly enjoying a bottle of the Two-Tails Villard Blanc over lunch at the Cheesemaking Workshop, I realised I have neglected some lovely boutique vineyards located literally in my own backyard. To remedy this situation we are about to embark on a road trip. Over the next four days, we will be discovering the vineyards of the “North Coast Wine Trail.”
Whilst I may have completely ignored our local wines, we have spent considerable time in the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Limestone Coast, and the vineyards of Tasmania, Mudgee and the Hunter Valley. We do have a point of references in comparing our homegrown varieties, with some of the bigger wine producing areas.
We will be taking four days on our road trip, as there are nine vineyards we intend to visit. The vineyards are located over the two hundred kilometres stretch between Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie.
The Vineyards on our “Wine Route” are listed below so follow along each day and I will let you know each time I find a nice drop.
- Two Tails Wines,
- Raleigh Vineyard,
- Sherwood Estate Wines,
- Cassegrain Wines,
- Inneslake Vineyards,
- Douglas Vale Historic Vineyards,
- Roses Vineyard,
- Long Point Winery,
- Bago Vineyards.
