Well, sometimes you go to school in a small town in Washington State, USA.
And then sometimes you meet up with some of those very same people in Angaston, South Australia.
Can you see Skylar in the tree? At 6 foot 5 it’s difficult to make him look short, but I think the tree and I made it work.
After picking him up in Glenelg, we drove to Angaston (stopping at Krispy Kreme on the way). That is where we met up with our friend Joe, who also went through the Walla Walla Enology and Viticulture program with us.
After lunch he took us to the winery where he is working for some tasting. It’s a lovely place called Lambert Estates. It was a great first stop to taste and get our bearings in the Australia wine scene. It’s so awesome how climate and soils and just the general place where the grapes are grown can have such a predominant impact on the wine. After tasting to much wine from Washington, I am super excited to try everything I can here.
Also, this tasting room was beautiful. Here’s to wishing Joe an excellent harvest.
