It is truly a great find, for a touch of the exotic visit the micro-boutique Nazaaray on the Mornington Peninsula.

Open every fortnight. and tucked away down a side asphalt road you stumble across it unless you are setting out to discover it. You are greeted by a quirky scarecrow or run over by a very happy, friendly Labrador.

Sheeba is delighted you are visiting and just about rolls out the red carpet for you. She is in one of the " Wine dog books" and you should ask about the ditties dedicated to her.

Rustic Nazaaray has beautiful views from an enclosed deck overlooking Green's bush and will serve light food such as soups, salads or a small spicy curry. Cold days mean you can sit around an open fire in a drop slab hut.

Bangles, Bhangra and Bollywood dancing, all add up to their legendary quarterly event, please view their website and join their mailing list.

Seventeen years old vines grow in red clay basalt and Paramdeep's patience produces a mean award winning drop, served at some of Australia's most discerning restaurants.

Seeing a turbaned Sikh winemaker often makes for curiosity being aroused and many a colourful conversation in the train carriage cellar door.

To avoid monoculture the vines are interspersed with Australian natives and a minimalistic approach is taken to using sprays. Nirmal, the owner, is an environmentalist and the focus is on melding with nature and planting. Birds abound as do kangaroos. The occasional echidna or koala can be seen. There is a donkey for weed control and two resident Highland long horned, very hairy, loveable cows.

Supervised children are welcome and love playing petanque or trying some of the selection of Organic Gundowring ice cream available.
