Wine country

As some of you who read my blog on a regular basis would know, my husband and I recently went on a road trip around Victoria, the ACT and NSW. On our way back through Victoria, we stayed at a country town, well known for its history of winemakers; Rutherglen.

Fourteen years ago, my husband proposed to me while we were on a romantic getaway in Rutherglen. This place is filled with nostalgia for the two of us, so we were really looking forward to returning.

We chose to stay at Tulleries, which used to actually be a vineyard and still has remnants of the old vineyard, which surrounds the property. Our room was fresh and modern, featuring white, pops of colour and citrus lime green.















Rutherglen is fairly limited in so far as top-notch restaurants. One restaurant I can highly recommend is called Taste of Rutherglen. Newly opened, it boasts a black and white checkerboard floor, red walls, local art and fabulous food! 

Great wineries to visit are All Saints Estate, Campbells, Mount Prior, Pfeffier Wines and Valhalla Wines.  All Saints Estate has the amazing Indigo Cheese Co on their premises, which have cheese platters to eat and enjoy, either on or off site. 











Although I'm not a huge wine drinker, due to having fructose malabsorption, I discovered a wine I can tolerate; Moscato. The cheese platter we had matched perfectly to this very refreshing and drinkable drop! Just perfect.




I have been extremely busy with work commitments over this past week. I have been really looking forward to the weekend, so that  I can relax and rejuvenate before another week begins.

What are your plans for your weekend? Are you doing anything exciting?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Yours in style,

    1. Tien, you've made my day! Thanks for the compliment. Age is really just a number in my opinion. I believe that if you are young at heart, you'll always stay young. Hope you've been keeping well.
