I may have made my birthday celebrations bigger than Ben-Hur, but hey another year around the sun is something to celebrate.  Especially when it is with a bunch of your favourite people.

On Saturday 17th August a group of us headed to McLaren Vale on what had to be the most beautiful Winters day.  Our first stop was Alpha Box & Dice, I had never visited this Winery before so was very excited!

It was extremely relaxed, and the service was amazing as was the Wine! It was perfect for a group to chill out whilst tasting some of the best Wines in the State.

Our second and last stop was the D’Arrenberg Cube, this was my second time visiting, I headed there last year for another birthday celebration.  Each time it leaves you awe-inspired, it is a perfect place to take visitors and spent a sunny Saturday, we had the group tasting on the 4th floor overlooking the picturesque landscape of McLaren Vale.

I don’t know about you, but going to wineries always gets me excited about outfits, there is something about it, dressing up in a different way.

For Saturday’s escapades I wore my 70s inspired pants (Zara), a cut-out white knit (Zara), classic black boots (Wittner) and a 70s shag jacket (Maxim).

On Sunday (my actual birthday), my family and I went on the Penfolds Tour & Tasting.  Living so close, this is only the second time visiting Penfolds and the first time doing the Tour!

I felt very educated afterwards and had a new found appreciation for Wine and the process involved.

For Sundays’ wine day, I donned a new Jumpsuit from Birdcage (CMEO), teamed with black boots (Wittner) a red hat (Minkpink) and a classic red lip (Fenty).

Having interstate and international guests down, I had to show them just some of South Australia’s beautiful wineries.  I’ve barely scratched the surface and look forward to adventuring out and seeing more of our famous wine regions.

I as absolutely spoilt and am enormously grateful, however the celebrations had just begun, my next post will be on my recent Sydney trip!

Stay tuned x
