Af­ter a long sum­mer and dry start to Au­tumn right across the re­gion, the cooler nights and chill in the air have come as a wel­come re­lief to most of us. But while the con­di­tions may not have suited ev­ery­one, it’s proved to be a promis­ing start for many of our lo­cal wine­mak­ers in­clud­ing Gapsted Wines which cel­e­brated its 20th an­niver­sary in 2017. In this edi­tion the team be­hind the busi­ness share their story, and how they plan to move the busi­ness for­ward in a com­pet­i­tive global mar­ket. Also cel­e­brat­ing a sig­nif­i­cant an­niver­sary is the Milawa Cheese Com­pany which turns 30 this year and has grown to be­come ar­guably one of the most recog­nised brands in the North East re­gion, thanks to the vi­sion and de­ter­mi­na­tion of the Brown fam­ily. An­other fam­ily who made a more re­cent ‘tree change’ to the re­gion are part­ners and writ­ers Campbell Mattinson and Thalia Kalkipsakis, who are pleased to say they’re ‘liv­ing the dream’ while pur­su­ing very dif­fer­ent projects from their home base in Wan­garatta. We also learn why Mt Buller is a pop­u­lar place to be in any sea­son from the peo­ple who call it home, find out what brought pas­try chef Ge­of­frey Michael back home to Al­bury, meet cham­pion trainer Rob Hick­mott and dis­cover how the Wan­garatta Art Gallery is in­spir­ing and sur­pris­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of art lovers. Rain, hail or shine, we hope you find some time to re­lax and en­joy these fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries about the place we call home.
