Coonawarra

I can hardly believe how fast the weeks seem to be going. It's already been a week since I took Summer to Penola for lunch and she tagged along while I dropped into Zemas in Coonawarra for some wine tasting.

Zema Estate, are one of the 20 odd wineries in Coonawarra along a 21 km stretch of road, just out of Penola. That's more than one winery per kilometre!

During the month of July is the 10th anniversary of Cellar Dwellers. I just had to drop by and take advantage of the festivities, and I am thinking of popping back again to enjoy some more!

Keep your eye out for the Coonawarra Wine Tasting Roadshow, when Coonawarra vignerons take their wines on tour around the country next month.

  2. How funny that I should be sitting here reading this with my mum who is a huge wine lover and has done all the Aussie wine regions. She recognises many of these spots! Beautiful pics xx

  3. Great photos - I recognise all the spots as I too was there last month of a little wine tour around the vineyards. I really did fall in love, such a beautiful place (and some great wines coming out of that region too)!

    1. Oh and how cute are the crocheted light posts and seats in the township of Penola - really does give off the vibe that the place really is loved and well cared for!

  4. I love yarn bombs. I wish I knew how to knit or crochet so I can warm up some trees. $3 for Chocolate and wine??!!! I think they call that heaven!

    1. They had 5 tastings of reds, there was only one I didn't fancy, a Shiraz. You could be sure I drank all the $40 cabernet! The $3 was to pay for the chocolate samples.

    1. This strip of wineries is very popular for bus trips. I remember I went on a Tennis breakup one year and we tasted to our hearts content, handy to have a driver!
