The next day we had decided we were going to go to some wineries. As Merv doesnâ€™t drink wine he w
as going to do all the driving and let me do all the wine tasting. Well, I wasnâ€™t going to say no to that, was I? I picked three wineries that I wanted to see, and a gourmet food shop. I also wanted to take the scenic drive, and all that didnâ€™t go together. The scenic drive was beautiful, there was so much to see! The day started off wet, but got better as time went on. We went through the Torrens Range, and went past reservoirs where we took loads of pictures. It took quite a while, the terrible signposts or lack thereof not helpingâ€¦ The first winery we stopped at was McGuigan Wines, or Yaldara Estate. It had some beautiful old buildings and gardens, and there was a cafĂ©, opal shop and gourmet food shop.
We then went on to the gourmet food shop I wanted to visit. As the kids were still asleep Merv let me go in on my own, but I didnâ€™t stay too long as again I was a bit disappointed! We then drove to another winery: Seppelt winery, which apparently is famous for its Rieslings.
And that was our last day in Adelaide. We loved most of it, and we will definitely be back there, as there is so much more to see and do! It is a great place for a romantic getaway, but also with kids, so we might have to back more than onceâ€¦ The next morning we would leave for Mount Gambier, so packing took up the rest of the night.
