Lunch with Maggie

Once I’d finished going through those there was only one choice - Seppeltsfield.

For a start, something was lacking in my tasting experience, and the something was the high-quality sherry-style wines produced in Australia. 

Looking at the photos on the website it was obvious the buildings and grounds would provide Madam with heritage-oriented photographic interest while I had a taste or two.

Once we’d picked up a guide book and the map it was time to think about lunch, but even before the German-accented lady drew a circle around it on the map, Madam had decided lunch was going to be a picnic basket from Maggie Beer’s Farm ShopShe’d also set her heart on trying the ice-cream there.

We drove out through light drizzle, parked and wandered indoors to find that the picnic basket was an eat-it-here affair of pate, dips and bread. 

There was an area where we could taste the pate, and once we’d made our selection it was a case of grabbing a table overlooking the lake which, even through the drizzle, was a pleasure to behold.

Off to Seppeltsfield
