it’s been a busy week. one of those weeks where you have so much on your mind that it all gets too much on a regular occasion and things that don’t seem important at the time get put on the back burner regardless of how important they actually are in reality.
hubby and i started the end of this week with a ridiculously early short flight followed by a strange drive through horribly scarred coal mining country that ended in magnificent wine and horse country at arrowfield estate in the upper hunter region of new south wales. the country is truly amazing. jerry’s plains, where arrowfield is nestled, sits in a lovely valley and is totally surrounded by an extremely expansive horse stud. this horse stud is where makybe diva (for those interested in our champion 3-time melbourne cup mare) is living now, with her brand new foal.
This photo is looking northeast from clarence hill to the winery. the estate sits on 380 acres.
the estate buildings – four weeks new and housing a massive 200 seater restaurant (????), cellar door, offices and alongside all the winemaking facilities.
looking south towards the wollemi national park (the mountains on the horizon)
nice view from cellar door.
tanks! lots of tanks! lots of wine…
