The day before New Year's Eve, we had a relaxing day driving down to the Mornington Peninsula with friends. We started at Sorrento, which supposedly has a rich history and is believed to be the first European settlement in Victorian. Now it seems the beach is all that holds anyone's interest.
For us, however, it was all about the wineries. We began with The Cups Estate, where a charming old gent talked us through the wines as we tasted various examples.

And for a break from wine, we visited the Red Hill Brewery - an independent microbrewery with some spectacular beers. The Temptation and the Wheat Beer were my favourites of the afternoon.
