Melbourne has so much to offer. I love experiencing new places and events and sharing them with you. I have an interest in gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets so I will let you know if you these can be catered for in my reviews.

Something for every wine palate
There's a moose on the wall, but don't let that intimidate you. The staff are lovely,and will guide you through their wines and tastings.

The wines range from the sparkling, whites, reds and rose (chardonnay, pinot rosť, pinot noir, cabernet savignon and shiraz). Sampling the winelist, we noticed there is a great variance in the wines in terms of complexity, nose, fruity influence, flavour and of course colours, There is something for every palate. We even noticed non-oak wines as well as oaked ones. The prices vary also, and are generally around $23 to $25 mark. You can also select cleanskins from the winery at $10.

Train Traks grow their own grapes, with the vines first planted in 1995. It is a family owned business. Your hosts can tell you all about the grapes as well as the wines. There is some more information about what is grown at the winery online. So whether you are a wine buff or not, it's an interesting way to spend the afternoon and learn about wine making. Of course you could also make it part of your road trip, or winery tour of the Yarra Valley, as Train Traks is right in the heart of it.

The winery also sells local produce and merchandise. From chutneys and jams, to soap products and gifts. Bring the family, there are beautiful Yarra Valley views, lots of space for the kids and a restaurant on site.
