On my birthday, I chose to drive across the Mornington Peninsula to Merricks, passing many wineries on the way with the vines covered with bird nets.
|No, it's not a wedding, it's bird netting on the vines close to harvest|
Coffee at the Merricks General Store was very expensive because it's full of delectible temptations - beautiful coffee, and lovely wine for tasting and buying, and fruit preserves of all kinds. I bought a few bottles of a Shiraz Pinot Noir blend which is really lovely.

Lovely day all round.
