| September 2017

We are coming down at Christmas time and looking forward to visiting you. We are particularly interested in trying the viognier as we have sampled it in several places in Canberra. We don't need accommodation but we will make a booking for your Bistro.

Thank you Kate, look forward to seeing you at our Cellar Door. Cheers Steve Oates
