TomVexille and I have organised a Yarra Valley wine tasting and lunch for Sunday November 30. Details and how to book are as follows.

We will meet at 0845 outside Parliament Station, Spring Street for a 0900 (sharp) departure by bus to the Yarra Valley.
Our first stop will be St Hubert’s for a 10am wine tasting.

Once we’re done there, we will head across the road to Punt Road Wines for a 10.45/11am tasting.

At 11.45am we will depart and head to Innocent Bystander/Giant Steps for lunch and a premium wine tasting of the Giant Steps range. Due to booking limits, the group will be split in two. Group 1 will dine at 12pm, while group 2 will undertake the Giant Steps tasting in a private room. At 12.30pm group 2 will sit down for lunch. When group 1 have finished lunch they will undertake the Giant Steps tasting. Innocent Bystander wines are also available for tasting in the public area.
Lunch will be at your own expense so please bring cash. You are also free to pop in to the White Rabbit Brewery next door for tastings.
At the conclusion of our lunch we will be back on the bus at 3.30pm, returning to Melbourne at approximately 4.30pm and at Melbourne Airport by 5.30pm.

Cost for this event is $65 (plus trybooking fee) and includes:
Bus to Yarra Valley and return to Melbourne and Melbourne Airport
Tasting at St Huberts
Tasting at Punt Road Wines
Premium tasting at Innocent Bystander/Giant Steps
Tasting fees are refunded if a purchase is made.
Numbers are STRICTLY limited to 16 due to space at venues.

This looks very enticing... though I'm shopping for something with a more Christmas-y feel to it ;)

We'd love to be there but seeing you are not including airfares we will stay in the USA.

Have a great time.

I see you have added this event to the AFF Calendar, I in turn have added it to the Facebook calendar for the AFF [-]group[/-] page. Let me know if any changes need to be made etc.

As for my attendance... I'm very low on cash at the moment and have to book LRE for 2 in mid-November... and choose between this event at the end of November, any Christmas parties that pop up in December and a McLaren Vale Do in January... all of which cost more than I have individually to spend on them :p

I have purchased a ticket... and may even show up.

I was trying to get a plus one to come with me, but that didn't go so well, so just me attending at this stage :)
