Tizzana Winery 2015

Sunday the 19th of July, 51 members, family & friends attended our event at Tizzana winery.

Our day began with a rendezvous at Mc Donalds McGraths Hill, where 25+ classics made their way to Tizzana, but first a picturesque "cruise" through the back streets of "metro Windsor", descending to Lower Portland river crossing (by punt) at Sackville. 

A first time experience for many!
On arrival at Tizanna, owner Jonathan gave us a very interesting insight into the history of the original owner of the winery. A very interesting presentation, with links back to  World War One and the Light Horse brigade!
 We then had the opportunity to sample the wines of the region, both Red and  White including fortified specialties. Lunch was served and members and guests were treated to locally grown vegetables with Chicken pieces and a sauteed sausage dish. With wine included as part of our lunch and a wonderful desert, the day came to a conclusion with many purchases from the cellar door.
 A great day and wonderful experience, allowing the opportunity to meet new members and family.
 Cin' Cin'!
