On Saturday we went for  an adventure to Red Hill North to a place called Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove for the Olive Festival.
On our way down the sky turned dark, and it began the rain began to fall. Cold and wet did not seem to mater. This beautiful scenic place caught my attention.

The pizza and wine caught my husband’s attention. We enjoyed sitting outside under the umbrella with the rain falling around us, enjoying pizza, wine and an awesome view. It was relaxing and allowed for some enjoyable conversation, especially with my son about his organic cola

After lunch we hit the tent, filled with music, and bursting with people, we delighted our taste buds in tastings of olive oils and cheeses.

So cute!

We then hit the took the opportunity to stroll along the wet lands walk, where we enjoy views of the vineyard and olive groves, covering the rolling hills. We enjoyed the wet lands and the artistic sculptures that we saw throughout our walk.
How much fun would this have been to create?

It made me wonder what other amazing places don’t I know about. It was a truly lovely day and a splendid place to have lunch.
