The entrance with a little Autumn colour.

Various specialty products available for purchase.

Some of their famous wine.

A bit of the history of the company, so many ups and downs.

Visit To Olive Hills Estate...

On a recent trip to Rutherglen we stumbled upon this lovely property...
This is the charming old shed where you can taste and purchase the estates wine,
 or it can be hired out for functions.
The view over to the old house as you come up the drive.


The outdoor entertaining area, the brick structure is a kind of fire place...

The entrance with smoked glass windows.

Looking out from inside the shed.

The entrance again.
Just lovely, especially with a bit of Autumn glow.
