I have been officially MIA when it comes to the garlic harvest for the last two days as I joined Michael Noyce from Noyce Bros. Wine and Rita Dixon from My Father’s Table to film a feature with Mike Whitney from Sydney Weekender. After wandering through the stunning Verdelho vineyard at Noyce Bros. Wines picking vine leaves for dolmades, we then proceeded into the Moore Wollombi Garlic paddocks to harvest garlic. We discussed the reasons why we should all buy and eat Australian garlic, of course! Mike did a great job driving the tractor and helping us harvest. Tody we headed to Blair Athol Estate to cook up a storm with Rita and enjoy a beautiful luncheon with a great group of people. Once again Mike got stuck into some great Moore Wollombi Garlic as he helped Rita cook up an amazing Lebanese feast. There is no time to rest as I head back into the paddock tomorrow to continue the harvest.
