Bowral winery

I took another trip down to the southern highlands last weekend to the Centennial Vineyards at Bowral, 126 kilometres southwest of Sydney.We had lunch at a beautiful restaurant attached to the Centennial Vineyards. This place had a very European look and atmosphere.

  1. Nice early morning light in these, Jim. I am not so keen on attempts to recreate atmospheres from other countries here to promote commercial enterprises. Makes me think that someone is using me, is tweaking my emotions.

  2. Strangely this reminds me of the cafe in the park here the top shot. Given me the idea of what to photograph this week. I'm with Julie on the light.

  5. but but but «Louis» thought that what the California vintners said was true - there are no other wines in the world than California wines! Do you mean to tell «Louis» they lied?! «Louis» is shocked! Shocked he tells you!

  11. We've got a ton of wineries around here, as well. I think close to 200 in the valley alone. I haven't yet posted photos of them - I've not gone around with my camera to catch them for my blog - but I intend to. This is a very unique winery...doesn't look anything like the ones around here.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. It's always fun to "meet" a fellow blogger.

  12. Wow, nice vineyard. Great shots of it. But, did you taste the wine and was it good? Would kind of grapes do they grow?

  13. Yes Frank, they do wine tasting at the winery and we were able to select our favourite to have with lunch at the restaurant. The white wines were superb. This vineyard is ideal for growing grapes for the white wines because Bowral, in the southern highlands, is a rather cool area, although they also bring in grapes from other parts of the country to produce some red wines.
