This will be a scenic drive approx. 1 hour. Finishing at the delightful Oakridge Winery, Coldstream.  This is an award winning Winery with excellent views.  We have booked a private room.  There will be a wine tasting prior to lunch.  The lunch is top class, consisting of  a 2 course meal with a choice of 3 mains.  Also included is a free glass of their  award winning wines.  If a club member wishes to purchase a bottle of wine, it will be at a discount of 10%, or on a 6 pack it will be 15%.  I have paid a large deposit, due to the prime time of the year, so therefore to retain this great deal I need to know the number of members wishing to go as soon as possible, or I will have to cancel our booking.  A deposit of $20.00 or full payment is required on booking.  The Restaurant was voted  -  Hottest Regional Restaurant by The Weekend Australian  -  Aug 2016.  Also won People, Produce Place, Tourism Restaurant Award.  The chef, Matt Stone, has recently won outstanding Chef Award.  Please book early as the room takes a maximum of 50.  Parking for our cars will be reserved.”
