Whyworry Wines Cellar Door - Uralla

What better thing to do on a weekend while I'm in Armidale - one of the New England subcultures - but to visit a nearby winery and enjoy the windy month of August.

Whyworry wines is located in the town of Uralla about 30 minutes from Armidale. This small little winery promises great service and superb wines that suit many different tastes. You can go in with a bunch of friends and buy a steak to barbeque on the back porch of their cellar door and enjoy a glass of one of their great wines or port. But if your not a wine drinker they still cater with great coffee and a wide variety of teas with some sweet stuff.

I decided that I wanted the best of both worlds and settled for some wine tasting and some good old country baked scones and a pot of tea. The wines I tried were lovely and easy on the palette. My favourite (and the one I ended up purchasing for $20) was a white port - a very light sweet dessert wine that is perfect in a small amount with your meal if you like or after a meal.

After a short wine tasting session I then had a walk about the premises which was quite small - but enough for you to soak up the view of the New England countryside and sunshine. The fresh cream (from their resident farm animals), jam and scones with tea was a lovely way to finish my visit.

Definitely recommend a short stop by this winery with some friends if your passing up that way :)
