After sleeping off the Little Creatures beers from last night's festivities and having a delightful breakfast at a nice little outdoor cafe whose name escapes me... I was ready to hit the Yarra Valley Wineries for another day of cultural drinking.  As promised... Claire promptly picked me up outside my hotel at the agreed upon time and the winery touring commenced.  The afternoon was spent stopping off at several wineries and sampling the local swill... actually, I did most of the sampling while my gracious/hospitable host did ALL of the driving and tolerated my obnoxious behaviour/music (bless her soul).  I believe we visited the Green Point, Rochford and Tarrawarra wineries at some point...but to be honest... after the first few glasses... all the wine started to taste the same.  By the end of the trip...the only difference my palate was able to discern was Red, White or beer.  All in all it was a beautiful day for Winery hopping... tonight I'll most likely be taking it easy (may go out for a beer or two on my own) as tomorrow will be chock full of Australian Open tennis before heading to Tullamarine Airport to catch my flight back to Bangkok
