Found this little beauty while motorcycle touring through NSW. http://www.robertstein.com.au/pages/...le-Museum.html Wine and bikes, always a good combination in the correct order.
A great concept we found in Tas was in the Tamar Valley. You buy whatever wines you want at the first winery, get given a box, take it on to successive wineries until full. Last winery arranges the delivery of the box, thus saving the poor rider having to decide which winery he/she wanted to buy a whole box from.

As for the toppest drop in Australia, I'll just continue the never ending quest. Gapstead winery near Myrtleford has a really interesting range making a mixed box purchase a must Leconfield in the Coonawarra is always keen to damage the bank balance, so much so they just ring me directly.

That is a cool site!

I think a ride may be in order from McLaren Vale, Mildura, Orange, Mudgee (the Museum) then back through Rutherglen, Milawa, Pyrenees and Great Western

Add the King Valley, Nagambie and Heathcote in there and you'd get some good riding in as well.

Im kinda spoilt I guess.

Needs to be a tipping point with wine - drink for taste or effect.

For taste - Red wine non blend and value - Cant beat the Yellowtail Stoddard Trophy Shiraz - You cant bey the 2003 anymore I believe - but the 2008 should be ready for general release - Stunning Wines and extremely reasonable price - sub $40 / Bottle.

For consistent value and taste - Any of the Jacobs Creek Reserve Range.

Whites - Sauv Blanc is the Flavour of the Decade it seems - Chardonnay is coming back a little - in truth the Kiwis have the best Sauv Blanc on the planet by a long short kick - dont go near any Sem Sav - waste of money.

A lot of Boutique Wines are blends made from established growers fruits - and just labelled as a trendy thing - Harking back to Yellowtail Wines - good consistent stuff at sub $9 - but if you want the same stuff cheaper you can have it under the banner of their Crate 31 range .... Same stuff different price

If you get the chance throw $15 at a bottle of Bunnamagoo estate Shiraz

I sometimes reference this site .. enjoy

If you get a chance a tour of Cassella wines where the yellow tail is made is a must see. The bottling line pumps out something like 39,000 bottles an hour, and the tank farm with untold number of 1.2 million litre tanks. The family has now started its own brewery as well as shot gun shell manufacture plant all at Yenda.

Yes, had a couple of tours there -

I Couldnt give the first lot of Beer ( Arvo) away however but its now got a niche market -

Smart people the Caseelas - they have sold the Brewing Operation at Yenda to a rather large Soft Drink Beverage Manufacturer - red and white logo - That particular Company had sold off its brewing operation to Tooheys, well the products it was brewing which thay had bought from John Singleton - Blue Tongue. - Part of the deal was that they were not to brew for 36 months I think - may have been 48, so look out for a few boutique brews from them coming in 2014 and a few established American Lines under License.

I know, I installed a lot of it (the Casella wine bottling hall, not the brewery)
I now look after their pump systems in the Vineyards

I declare myself as a devotee of the fortified red, KRR was celebrated with a Morris liqueur muscat, my choice for the cold flame is Penfolds Special Reserve Tawny. For those with similar taste you just have to have a go at the Lake Breeze Old windmill tawny.

Boner, that lot could almost force me to start drinking with my tucker, I've had the paracombe and the ringbolt at my olds place, if the other two are as good you've scored a quadrella

Hey Naz, tell Matty that if he's got any more of that 2000 merlot left, bring it along to the Classic and we'll colour the onions with it and marinate the steak....too bad we don't do chips on the Saturday night or we could use it as vinegar too. If this is the crap he's been feeding to you, chase me up when you get there and we'll find something flavoursome for you to try.....
