Mid 911 Register Winter Run to Russo Estate Winery, Diggers Rest

Sunday 18th August

All Mid 911 Register Members, PCV Members and potential members are invited to participate in our winter run to Russo Estate Winery Diggers Rest.

After departing our meeting place at McDonalds in Gisborne, we will drive the back of and up Mt Macedon. Just short of Woodend we head towards Romsey only to skip Romsey for Monegeetta and down to Riddells Creek for morning tea at the hidden gem that is Dromkeen country house ( A historical homestead with an art gallery, literature room, fireplace (a must for August) and of course, tea/coffee (with $10 tea/coffee & scones for those interested).

The second part of the run takes us back towards Romsey, on to Darraweit Guim (say that in a hurry), through Wildwood, Bulla and towards Diggers Rest before arriving at our lunch destination, Russo Estate. Set among the paddocks where Harry Houdini made the first powered flight in Australia ( Russo Estate is a lovely setting for our club lunch with a cellar door, selling Houdini wines of course, for those interested in checking out what goes best with lunch. Lunch will be an option of entrée and main or main and dessert with several choices within each course. With options like Lamb Shoulder, Baked Potato Gnocchi, grass-fed Porterhouse steak and with Caramelised Lemon Tart on the dessert menu I’m sure there will be something for everyone (dietary requirements catered for of course).
