YARRA VALLEY, VICTORIA
Famous for its rolling fields of grapevines heavy with plump fruit in the summer, the Yarra Valley makes an equally magical winter destination when the vines are bare, the air is crisp and the surrounding mountains are topped with snow. Explore the beautiful surrounding forests, hop between cellar doors and, if you’re lucky, play jubilantly in the snow. Then, with cheeks rosy from the chilly winter air, cuddle up in your cottage in front of the fire with a platter of local cheese and fruit and a bottle of Yarra Valley red. Heaven on earth.
