The tour started at Richmond Plains with a fantastic tasting of this year’s tank samples and bottled Blanc de Noir.
It was back in the van at 11am and off to Blackenbrook Wines at Tasman, where co-owner and winemaker Daniel Schwarzenbach showed us around, talked about how he makes wine and let my bunch of wine lovers taste some of his product, comparing finished wines with new-season tank samples.

The next stop was lunch with Tim and Judy Finn at Neudorf Vineyard, followed by a comprehensive winery tour with Chris Seifried at Seifried Estate.
