Life's Little Treasures...

As I sit here on my deck enjoying a glass of the local shiraz, reflecting on another great day, my mind wanders.

My brand new home, designed to our exact needs, with the birds chirping and the sunrise glittering above the morning fog. I pull back the curtains to be greeted with magnificent views overlooking the vineyards.

I step out into the garden to let the fresh morning air fill my lungs and Mike brings out breakfast to be enjoyed al fresco.

Friends are due later, so we pop out to the main street to stock up. To get there, we usually take a stroll through the Piazza Della Valle which adjoins our development.  We’re tempted to stop and enjoy some performance art, and Mike convinces me with a coffee from the Café Della Valle.

Then it’s on to the shops where we say hello to the butcher and the baker who know our favourite flavours (for me, it’s the veal and duck sausages).

Home in time for Mike to spend a bit of time tidying up the garden. It’s just the right size; large enough to enjoy without taking the whole weekend to keep. Our friends arrive and we’re off to enjoy the special pleasures of McLaren Vale.

A few cellar doors, some wonderful half dozens, great conversation all amongst vines.

Lunch is an enjoyable feast of local produce as we enjoy the afternoon sunshine. It was such fun tossing a coin to decide on the restaurant to dine. It’s always so difficult with so many choices.

As we say goodnight to our friends, it was music to my ears when she shared her love of the area and their decision to buy next door.

What a day… enjoying life’s
little treasures at Tatachila Estate.
