There is a buzz in wine country this spring.  Word is that the 2012 vintage is going to be spectacular!  Reminiscent of previous glory years, we are in for some delicious surprises come spring release.

As the lull of winter subsides and the wineries and restaurants come back to life, recharged and ready for a busy spring, we are reminded yet again of the splendour of living in one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world.

Check out what our winery chefs have planned for their spring menus in Dona Sturmanis’ delicious feature as well as what the ladies at Poppadoms – Taste India! restaurant have been up to this winter. Many of our wineries have exciting announcements too. There are patios and restaurant expansions, wine cave construction and wonderful new staff to introduce.  We just can’t wait to start touring!
