1 - Water and Wine
Our journey begins in the historic Port of Echuca, where you can take a step back in time, envisage the area when it was know as the biggest inland port in Australia.
Our first port of call is the cellar door of St Annes Vineyard. St Anne's have been in the industry for over 40 years and has a production facility in Moama which also services growers in the Perricoota Wine District. They also have a property in Myrniong Victoria which produces their cool climate varietals. They have on offer a selection of red and white wines, sweet or dry and an interesting selection of fortifieds.
After our first tasting we meander down to the river where we catch a river boat. Sit back and relax to the gentle splashing of the paddlewheels, watch the towering gum trees that line the banks of the river, slip slowly by, approximately half an hour. Check out the historic Port of Echuca Wharf from the water. Totally restored and made out of redgum a magnificient structure.
Arriving at award winning Morrison's Riverview Estate*, Cellar Door, Restaurant, we leave the boat and have a short stroll past the lagoon up to the Restaurant. Here we enjoy a fantastic grazing lunch, sample a full compliment of quality wines, relax and enjoy the ambience of the location, this is always a highlight of the tour.
Time for a power nap if the day's activities are catching up, or a good gossip with a friend but it's off to Cape Horn Vineyard. Approximately 20 minutes out of town is located on a sand hill wedged between the Murray and Goulburn Rivers and is named after the river bend resembling Cape Horn on the tip of South America. Last but not least a sensational Cellar Door offering varieties such as Chardonnay, Marsanne, Shiraz, Durif, Zinvandel. Even a large chess set if you want to have a quick game.
Unfortunately we have come the end of our journey, a great day has been had by all and we return you safely to your accommodation.
