As you all can see the 3 of us made purchases here including a bottle of grape syrup each, if the wines not sweet enough for your taste you add a very small drop to sweeten or add to ice cream or a milk drink.. just a few uses for the grape syrup. Now out the back and into the rose garden

WE Stopped here to stretch our legs and get a bite to eat for lunch .Carol headed to the bakery were she purchased a nice hot cup of potato and leek soup, Pauline and I went next door for A feed of fish and chips before hitting the road again.
While driving along we noticed a sign to the KEG factory, and of course we had to go have a look
A chair made from a Keg,(Barrel)
It was comfy but would think if filled with ice and drinks would be very cold on the rear end.
A few assorted kegs for sale.
Here one of the friendly staff was explaining the best way to use the small Keg.
The window you see is for viewing work in progress,Unfortunetly the workers had finished for the day.and couldn't see any in production
We were told at the visitors centre this was a must see To taste the Meads unique to this area, as we driving though this area of course we stopped to sample the Meads.Ports and wines that were on offer, I must say was well worth the stop . After tasting the warm Meads , ports and wines, we all come away feeling quite warm inside and very happy with our Purchases.I purchased Scarlet Mead (Chocolate and Cinnaman)Ohh so nice
,a white port and a couple of bottles of
Sweet red late harvest Cabernet Sauvigon.
Not a lot of photo's here I was tooooo busy tasting and forgot the about the camera in my pocket.Their Motto is.
WE GROW THE GRAPE.. MAKE THE WINE...BOTTLE IT., SELL IT TO YOU
.,AND YES!! WE DO DRINK IT..
I took these Photo's of the Murals on the vats depicting the history of wine making, I only took a few as there was quite a line of them
Now its time to find our Motel and get a good nights rest before we hit the road again .A few more days before we make it home.. Pt5 to follow..
