THEY say one of the best ways to take care of your mental health and wellbeing is to be physically active and make sure you keep learning new things.
While that might involve pursuing an academic qualification, an informal approach can apparently be just as effective, like taking up a hobby, a game or sport, or picking a musical instrument.
Broadening your horizons when it comes to wine can easily be achieved in this region because there are so many interesting varieties to try everywhere you look, there’s no reason to limit yourself.
You can take a road less travelled in more ways than one if you make your way to Glenrowan and try a lesser-known Italian variety like Morrison’s Primitivo.
It’s an unapologetically red lover’s red, with a deep, purple tinged colour and a spirited aroma which is all about wild berries and savoury oak.
It has a medium body with vibrant, earthy flavours, blending dried herbs with hints of raspberry and plum.
The wine was made using traditional methods and aged in French and American oak casks, which certainly enhance those earthy, savoury qualities, which should further develop in time.
Or try it now with hearty Italian food like lasagne and pizza and consider it an immersive, cultural experience.
One must take this self-improvement strategy seriously.
