This quirky shop has a counterpart in Sassafras in the Dandenongs. It is a shop that specialises in tea and coffee and their associated implements, like pots, spoons, cups, saucers, and danglers. It is a lovely shop to just browse, with 300 different types of…Read More

Tarra Warra

Domaine Chandon

Written by Kookaburra on 28 Oct, 2005

This large commercial operation is very slick yet still makes you feel welcome. The interesting free winery tour given is a different type of wine-making process. These tours run twice a day. In peak season, numbers could be high, as the minibus tour operators bring their people to…Read More

Punt Road Winery

Written by Kookaburra on 28 Oct, 2005

This has a small, friendly tasting room. The manager, Alison, has a personality well suited to her role. We spent much longer here than we were planning due to the fact that it was like staying to chat to an old friend, even while she…Read More
