Our first tasting is at Petaluma, which is the cellar door to Bridgewater Mill. We then drive through Hahndorf, a historic German village settled in the 1840s. Our next tasting is at Nepenthe in Balhannah or Bird in Hand at Woodside. As we pass through Springton you may wish to visit the hollow tree which provided 'home' to Friedrich and Caroline Herbig and 2 of their 16 children from 1856 to 1860!
