The Lost Girls are wine connoisseurs! Well, not really, but we graduated from the Hunter Valley Wine School today and each got our own certificate. We were instructed to wear these hardhats (even though weíre hardheaded enough) during a tour of the winery to witness just how vino is made. Then we sat down inside the wine bar and got to sample all different kinds.
Hunter Valley is known for four types of wine: Semillon (a light, dry white), Verdelho (a fruity white), Chardonnay (a full-bodied white that can be tart) and Shiraz (a spicy red). Though there are hundreds of boutique wineries in Hunter Valley, so we were disappointed to learn that we canít buy many of the bottles in the States since the smaller ones donít produce enough wine to export. I better drink my share now since Iíll have to make another trip to Oz to taste it againóor stock up on a few bottles to take home.
