What’s not to love with a tour like this? I had no idea Melbourne had a retirement home for racehorses but when I stumbled across it on the internet I was thrilled. It combined some irresistible attractions- champion horses, wine tasting with pizza lunch and as if that wasn’t enough, a boutique beer tasting up at Woodend. .. The horses live on a lovely old property just outside of Melbourne where we were treated to one of the very best Devonshire teas I’ve had before meeting the horses. Stars like Paris Lane, Zipping, Efficent My Lucky Day, Fields of Omagh and the gorgeous Apache Cat as well as Rogan Josh, Might & Power, Silent Witness & other magnificent horses competed for our attention. The unfortunate Admitral Rakti is buried here in a beautiful resting place. The horses seemed delighted with the attention and we all left feeling rather good in having helped the racehorse retirement fund.
Then on to a winery in the Macedons for a tasting and lunch of pizza before heading up to Woodend to indulge in a beer tasting at a boutique brewery. Time for a wander around the historic town and a browse of the shops as well. A great day out.

I did the Horses, Wine & Beer tour last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Anthony is an outstanding guide - even though I didn’t know anyone else on the tour he made me feel extremely welcome and the whole day just became so easy and enjoyable.
We visited Living Legends to meet some equine heroes first hand in their magnificent surrounds (plus Devonshire tea), then off to Gisborne Peak Winery for a tasty pizza lunch with wine tastings.
After a relaxing meal, we made our way to one of Victoria’s best Craft Breweries - Holgate’s at Woodend for tastings of their full range of beers.

A really full day, but a great day. If you love the horses and/or wine and/or craft beer you simply cannot go wrong.
