Despite the gray and rainy weather, we took off for the coast this weekend and spent the day on Mornington Peninsula.  Kelly & Adam had suggested lunch at Montalto Vineyard, which has received an Aussie “chef’s hat” (the equivalent of a Michelin star) for its restaurant concoctions and has an award-winning Pinot Noir available at its cellar door.

So on Saturday we rented a car and headed down south of the city.  First, we dropped in on the T’Gallant winery to stock up on a few of our favorite wines for the impending visit from the (in-law) Whites, then we spent the afternoon tasting, noshing, and traipsing around the muddy Montalto grounds.  Check out the full pictures here.
