a Surface Sojourn - time for a break!

Its been a fantastic but very frantic couple of months since we started the concept of Surface POP-up

 Aaron, Dylan and I packed up on boxing day and headed down to my mother-in-laws near Phillip Island for a few days

Today we went for a drive to check out Archies on the Creek and meet Vern Rickman the creative mind and owner behind Archies on the Creek, Vern has THE most amazing wine cellar I have ever laid eyes on, the space reminded me somewhat of a Central Otago winery in New Zealand.

 Vern has the most incredible passion and open face making one feel so welcome and at home.
He poured us a sparkling wine to enjoy as we paroused the floor to celling shelves and wine temperature controlled room.

 Vern filled me in on his plans of turning the football field he owns next door into a helipad for his 'high clientale' so as not to disturb his neighbours cattle with helicopters coming and going's, he plans to build a resort too, gets better and better - and my all time dream - a day spa!




Aaron having a drink - we left with a Yarra Valley Pinot!





He supports Art, by having exhibitions in his events space once a month, something Surface POP will be following up on and hopes to do a collaboration with Vern at some point.
