Prickly Mo

Last Sunday, we took Cooper for a drive off the beaten track to while away the afternoon at Prickly Mo.

The vineyard was established twenty two years ago at Eugenana but the cellar door is a more recent evolution.

The old shearing shed offers a unique tasting room experience and the comfy seating arrangements are irresistible.

Wet weather and storms had been forecast so the main deck was enclosed, gas heaters poised for Tasmania’s unpredictable elements (no, I don’t mean the customers).

We felt at home straight away, our philosophy obviously in tune with that of the establishment.

I’m sure there are a few stories to be told about this rustic ornament.

The highlight of the afternoon was the live music Sunday Session, on this occasion starring the very talented Neil Gray.

while Neil entertained with masterful guitar work and smooth vocals, not to mention some nifty pedal shifting.

The storm clouds moved on, leaving nothing more than a few showers

We enjoyed a leisurely drive home with the top down, reflecting on our wonderful day, four bottles of Prickly Mo in the back seat.
