It’s spring rac­ing sea­son and while many of us may visit lo­cal tracks to en­joy the fash­ion or per­haps a flut­ter, for Wangaratta’s Ju­lian Cor­boy it’s down to busi­ness, en­sur­ing his clients’ horses put their best foot for­ward. In this is­sue we dis­cover how the mas­ter far­rier com­bines his love for horses, rac­ing and the tra­di­tional trade of black­smithing. We also head to Yackan­dan­dah - a place two very in­ter­est­ing fam­i­lies have de­cided to call home. While the En­gel’s have built a be­spoke home from straw bales to suit their spe­cific re­quire­ments, the Attwood’s have cre­ated a busi­ness in town, us­ing the finest lo­cal prod­ucts to dis­til their premium whisky. If there is any­one who knows what makes a top drop, it’s fourth gen­er­a­tion wine­maker, Colin Camp­bell. We meet the Camp­bells of Ruther­glen pa­tri­arch, who re­ceived an Or­der of Aus­tralia this year for his out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the wine in­dus­try. Over in Be­nalla the call has gone out for more women to take up glid­ing, while on the ground the tiny town­ships north of the city are mak­ing their own mark on the bur­geon­ing silo art trail. We also find out why the res­i­dents of Eldorado choose to call the his­toric town home, meet Alex and Christa Smit for lunch at The River Deck Café in Al­bury, and learn more about Wangaratta priest Robert Whal­ley’s ex­tra­or­di­nary life. We hope you en­joy this sea­son’s en­ter­tain­ing mix of sto­ries.
