Myrtleford - Vineyards

During our four day stay in what is known as 'NE Victoria' - which is crushingly bureaucratic, hence my label, 'Myrtleford' - we visited three wineries: Pizzini, Gapsted, and Boynton (Feathertop).

We had no pre-set agenda, working it out each morning. We bought simply to consume that evening. There were SO MANY other equally brilliant wineries we could have visited, Brown Bros. at Milawa for starters. But we were driving ourselves, and took due care. I collected the email subscriptions to each vineyard to consider here at home.

I particularly liked the Sangiovese from Pizzinis, who also had a nice Verduzzo. But, if I had to choose just one wine, it would be the Sangiovese. However, from the point of a vineyard and the visitor experience, I would have to plump for Gapsteds.

The first two images in this post show Gapsteds Vineyard. The third image shows the Boynton Vineyard. The final image is from within the tasting room of Pizzini. All three vineyards are on Facebook.
