A glorious day greeted us as we awoke on the Saturday of Nev's 40th birthday celebration. I was awake not long after 7.00am, which was a shame, but after reading in bed for awhile Helen and I got up and had some toast and coffee (black - no milk!) on the verandah outside our room in the morning sun.
Our bus and driver for the day was promptly outside our hotel at 9.30am, but given a bit of dragging of feet from those who were not quite in the best frame of mind, we didn't get going until about 9.50am. From here we headed to our first winery of the day, Mount View Estate.
