Yarra Yarra Yes

Having made it to pretty much every wine region in South Australia, we knew if we were going to Melbourne we had to hit Yarra Valley as well. And trust me, we were not disappointed. Although we only had a few hours before heading to the Great Ocean Road, we packed in four tastings and…

An Extensive Guide to Clare Valley

I have to say Clare really grew on me. Hands down the smallest town I’ve ever lived in it definitely took some getting used to but now even thinking about leaving breaks my heart. I’m going to miss running and biking on the Riesling Trail, spending every day off in the Health Shop with the…

The 9 Best Things About Living in Napa

Let’s face it, Napa’s lit. A small town surrounded by some of the best vineyards in the world, there are far worse things you could do than spend a few months of your life here.
