On one of the hottest days this summer, 35 of us made our way to Pennyweight Winery at Beechworth where the temperature was a few degrees lower, thank goodness. We sat out under their beautiful big trees in the paved courtyard and were looked after by Libby and Liam.
We tasted two reds and whites and their delicious, fortified Pennyweight Gold aged in old oak casks for seven years. It can be enjoyed chilled as a delicious aperitif, a dessert wine or as a mixer with tonic, ice and lime – sounded good on the day!
Once again, we were seated under trees and umbrellas on their expansive lawn. The menu is predominantly Asian with some usual pub food. I can’t speak highly enough of the staff who looked after us. They were always smiling and happy to help.
Our March 17th our outing is to Gapsted Winery at 3897 Great Alpine Rd, Myrtleford and then onto lunch at Café Fez located at 145 Great Alpine Rd, Myrtleford. There is a $5 charge for the tasting. The tasting is booked for 11.00.
As usual we will meet in the car park behind Aldi at 10.00. Please RSVP by Sunday 12th either by return email or phone/text 0428 696 408.
