Emily Ann’s brief to us was that she wanted ‘something unique and different to anything she could find anywhere else’.  And we were only too happy to oblige.

She wanted to celebrate her 30th Birthday with all the women in her family – her Grandmother, Mother, Aunts and Cousins so she organised a family weekend at a gorgeous retreat called Cheeky Fox with stunning views in Kinglake.

It was a triple celebration with her 30th, a wedding anniversary and another birthday all around this time.

As they wanted a half day tour, we started the tour at midday at Greenstone Vineyard for their first wine tasting.  It’s a lovely boutique cellar door with friendly customer service, superb views and a fleet of great wines to taste too.  We then went on to TarraWarra Estate, a top shelf Yarra Valley winery, for a wine tasting in their architecturally designed hobbit-style cellar door built into the side of a hill, and Emily Ann and her family enjoyed delicious platters out on the pepper tree deck that overlooks the vines and dam.

They had fun catching up on all the family news whilst enjoying the food and lovely wine.

Then to finish their relaxing day, we visited Corniola Wines in Yarra Glen where Vince provided a fun presentation of their wines accompanied by some cheese and biscuits.  

This was perfect as we knew the Cheeky Fox were serving celebratory dinner for them that evening, to enjoy with the wines they had purchased through the day.
