Rutherglen

Our first stop was the town of Rutherglen. An hour out of Albury and close to the Murray River, it’s a quaint North-East Victorian town with lots of lovely architecture.

The second picture is of our bed and breakfast – that allows dogs! So Bridie was happy.

An early morning walk took me to the paddock around the back of the B&B, where I encountered some ladies having their breakfast.

Rutherglen is famous for its wines, and we sampled a few (Pfeiffer, Andersons and Cofield are just three). The wines (both sweet and table) were delicious, and since all the wineries are generally small operators, we even got to talk to some of the wine makers. And for those contemplating a road trip with their furry friends, many cellar doors even allow dogs.
