I can't say I'm the type to normally write reviews, but the splendid weekend we spent at Talga has me making this exception:
We arrived quite late Friday, but despite our tardiness Michael and Leyla welcomed us warmly and had us settled in for the night.
When we awoke the next morning, all were struck by the surrounds. Less than 10 paces from our veranda the sun was rising over the vines. It couldn't be more picturesque - flighty kangaroos making a dash when they saw us. Curious sheep coming to visit. But most surprising of all is Talga's pomegranate orchard! I can't say I've ever seen that in the Hunter. For breakfast we had a fry up on the BBQ on our veranda, partaking in the eggs and bacon we found in the fridge.
After traipsing the vineyards all day, our weary crew couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The villa was incredibly spacious with oversized coma-inducing-comfy couches and a king sized bed (I'm pretty sure the sheets were 1000 thread count). I also felt a bit cheeky taking a bottle of local semillon into the spa, but hey, how often does the opportunity present itself? Needless to say everything is modern and meticulously clean.
When we packed the car for the trip home, Leyla and Michael presented us with a bunch of fresh table grapes from the Talga vineyard. Just the sugar hit we needed for the trip back to Sydney. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend!
