wine touring day two

so day two- off we go to the area south of Blenheim--

















after Wither Hills where everyone was very friendly and the views were even better than the very nice wines- we headed along to another.... Villa Maria and then Fromm-















then on to lunch at Twelve Trees at Allan Scott Winery-








then back to tasting - still a few more to go- Seresin and then Spy Valley and then Lawson's Dry Hills:











below- how Spy Valley got its name:






with that we called it "done" and headed back into town- later we had dinner at Accent a wonderful mom and pop place with very upscale cooking:











the wine we purchased the day before a Mustang PN from Cloudy Bay- was an excellent accompaniment!


so we headed back to the hotel one more time and prepared for the trek back to Wellington and on to Sydney - we had a couple of surprises in store for us but I will save them for the next post which will be the international adventure!
