The French word for Thirst is 'Soif' and the colourful Easter holidays is an ideal time to enjoy an array of fragrant and alluring French and French-inspired wines in the pretty, floral gardens as we meander along these flat botanical trails, stopping often to sip Crémant de Limoux and delightful Blanc, Rouge & Rosé.

Trek across these exquisitely rugged trails with Spanish and Portuguese wines in tow and partake of the modern Australian versions of Albarino Tempranillo, Mencia and the sort. Inspired by the intrepid Don Quixote, you'll fall in love with the picturesque, kangaroo-laden tracks and the rich & rustic nature of the wines on offer.
Ambling past old stone cottages along a pleasant creek-line, this hike is steeped in historical garden charm in a valley full of koalas overhead.
