The Barrel Room

I had no idea which winery this was (now I do, thanks to Tim), and no, not because I was tasting (I wasn't), but we visited a lot of wineries and it was 5 months ago!

However, I do recall they had several of these grand stone buildings there and that it was here that the memory card on the dSLR filled up, so it was film only for this location.

    That is called the Barrel Room and is part of the Peppers Creek property. Its not actually a winery but a wedding reception venue.

    Thanks Tim, I'm pretty sure we took notes at the time, but I haven't a clue where those notes are now.

    Well, I have the notes but as they are basically a time-ordered list of the wineries we visited they aren't very helpful for film shots.
    Works for the digi shots, as they are an ordered stream, and its fairly obvious when the photos are from a different place.
    I think its really the '5 months ago' that is defeating us.

    Is this really Peppers? I thought we visited there hours before we ran out of batery on the digi cam.
  • David de Groot said:
    Nah that was Pepper Tree Winery we went to earlier. (the one with the melted candles, ducks, blacksmith cottage and the old dilapidated house out front).

    That sounds more like Hanging Tree Wines?
    but I know which one you mean now, it has the 'convent' (past or present? not sure...') in the same grounds and looked like a place for an upmarket wedding reception. On Halls Rd
    but that was long before you ran out of battery? Not that you weren't allowed to take film there... :-P

    Oh yeah, I knew it was "something" tree wines. I suspect it was actually "card full" rather than batteries empty, but either way, I thought this was the last winery we hit.
