Ask me how :)
I am a Yarra Valley local and Pinot Noir tragic on an endless quest to find the perfect wine (it's a never ending quest). I have lived and worked in the Valley for 15 years and have watched it grow into a booming region with a fantastic array of food and wine experiences. I love taking visitors to my favourite local haunts to hear the stories behind the cellar doors of the people who live and work in this region and who are equally passionate about what they do and the amazing produce they produce! I am all about finding unique ways to bring the valley alive to our visitors!
