The Postcards team explore Victoria’s newest winery, plus restaurants and exhibitions, this Sunday at 5.30pm on Nine.
Rebecca Judd heads two hours out of Melbourne to visit the newly renovated Mitchelton Winery in Nagambie. She meets head winemaker Travis Clydesdale for a tasting session and pops by the Muse Restaurant to see which meals match the wines she just tried.
The latest addition to the winery is the Mitchelton Hotel, with 58 rooms made of natural stone and warm timber paying homage to the rural location. After a long day, Bec relaxes at the Mitchelton Day Spa before trying the treats at The Ministry of Chocolate.
We find Brodie Harper at the Point Nepean Portsea Market, which is held only three times a year. She samples some licorice varieties and chats with artist Donna Taylor, whose intricate art pieces called Dots by Donna are made purely from small dots. The market is a great place for gift shopping, so Brodie seeks out a candle store and stops to smell the roses at a flower stall.
Shane Delia is joined by good friend Guy Grossi as they go on an eating tour of the Melbourne CBD. First on the list is Guy’s new restaurant, Pezzo, and he takes Shane into the kitchen to show him his latest creation: a pizza pocket made from pizza dough fermented for 48 hours. Down the street is their next stop, the Kenzan Japanese restaurant where guests can sit at the sushi bar and watch the dishes being prepared. On the hunt for something sweet, they move on to Barbarella Gelateria and enjoy a gelato to finish off the day.
Meanwhile Lauren Phillips catches up with Missy Higgins to explore Melbourne’s newest permanent exhibition, the Australian Music Vault. Created by Arts Centre Melbourne in collaboration with the ARIA Hall of Fame and APRA, this free exhibition showcases the best Australian music has to offer, from handwritten song lyrics, classic costumes and rare memorabilia to artists’ personal items, such as Missy’s first guitar.
Postcards encores nationally on 9Life on Mondays at 12.30pm and Saturdays at 11.00am.
