The Yarra Valley in Australia is home to numerous wineries, but few have the history, the vineyards, and the winemaking expertise to match Helen’s Hill.
With only two weeks to tour four regions of Australia, our itinerary was tight. But fear not, we DID save some time to do some wine tasting. Top of our list? Yarra Yering!
Beautiful wine abounds, but what about beautiful wine supporting beauty in the community? We were introduced to Fleurs de Prairie Rosé, which is exactly that!
It is a small world, after all! How else could a chance encounter in a Paris wine bar lead to an amazing experience in a Australian wine bar? That’s exactly what happened with a French recommendation brought us to “Love, Tilly Devine” in Sydney.

The day after Thanksgiving, known everywhere as Black Friday, is a shopping extravaganza without compare. Instead of fighting the crowds, we pursued a far more pleasant goal: visiting Dante Robere Vineyards to sample their latest wines.
