Beautiful Yarra Valley Pt. I
If u plan your trip to Melbourne, I suggest you NOT to miss Yarra Valley! It is so beautiful, 8gb memory card won’t be able to hold those scenic shots you made in here! And for wine drinkers, I guarantee you will get tipsy as soon as you arrives in this beautiful valley.
Yarra Valley – one of Australia’s most beautiful regions, located 50kms to the east Melbourne’s CBD, an hour drive, is the most beautiful place I ever been in my life so far. The place is so beautiful ‘til made me think that I am willing to marry a worker who work in this wineries valley if the wine estate owner doesn’t interested in me. LMAO. I want to stay, wake up from my sleep, eat, play, pee, shit and go back to sleep here!
Believe me, I got 82452458634 photos of this valley, but I only can upload it up to 30-35 max pictures in my every post since one of my reader suggested me so, or else he unable to see all my gorgeously taken pictures due to heavy, slow downloads. See? I love comments and suggestion. I respond to them immediately and hope things will improve from time to time.
More gorgeous scenic photos will be uploaded in my 2nd post ya. So lemme brag more in this one.
It was a perfect day, everything so bright and beautiful, the sky, the trees, the grass and myself included! lol.
We bought a winery tour at AU98 and it worth my every single dollars even though Im unable to drink it, but to me it’s not all about drinking and tasting, but to be there – a home of high quality grapes being processed for those people who never really appreciate it, but only know to pop out the cork, gulp it down over some flirty conversations and feeling all classy. Boo!
This day tour (9am – 5pm) consists of 4 stops (Yering Station, Rochford, Yering farm and House of Domaine Chandon) + 01 lunch. You’ll be given a lunch menu inside the tour van so that the tour guide can pre order once u decided what’s for lunch.
Our tour guide was very entertaining (not to mention superbly informative) he made us laughed throughout the tour.
Range of sauce, syrup, oil and many other cooking ingredients which are freshly made from grapes. Non alcohol, but grape based. Well, I couldn’t think of anything to cook with grapes flavor in it except jelly and drinks.. so I didn’t buy any of this.
and so the lesson begins. Gosh I forgot his name since this was taken 2 months ago! But he telling us the history and the making of chardonnay, green skinned grapes used to make white wine. He taught us from the very basic of holding the tulip glass, why need to twirl the wine, smell it and using of tongue parts to identify various taste of flavor base.
“the most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge, and so powerful a punch that, like falling in love, they make the blood run hot and the soul wax embarrassingly poetic” ~ Joel Fleischman, Vanity Fair.
“Sex in a glass” ~ Master Sommelier Madeline Triffon
I don;t know how much sex in that glass, but I believed those 2 tour guides wondering why I keep pouring out
the sex the wine into the bucket in front of me. He might think Im pregnant. hahaha. I did the smell and twirl thing, I listened to every explanation minus the tasting. Some of u might say that Im that stupid wasting my AU98 by refuse to taste it, well there are lots of other things I can enjoy besides tasting the wine. My principle – you had nothing to argue about it.
I remember in my trip to HongKong, where I refused to enjoy (and being so careful) about so called heaven delicacies which is made by “pork or not” but then getting mocked by my travel partner “ is that what you called real food?” when I went for McDonalds egg burger. I mean, where is her sensitivity towards other’s belief and principle? Does she know that people in this world have millions dissimilarity towards stuffs and about, and when she enjoy eating pork and fucking all white men around the world, doesn’t mean others have to do it too just because her throat and clits says “ahhh so good”?
Try to avoid this type of people at all cost.
