Wine Odyssey Australia *

Before R takes flight on her USA adventures, 
we explored a niche wine bar & restaurant tucked away at The Rocks. 
There were several Food and Wine Flights available, 
consisting of glasses of wine perfectly paired with small seasonable dishes
Dimly lit surrounds and quite chatter filled the air, 
which provided the ideal ambience for a relaxing Saturday night.
