Back from a recent 3 day tour with Merrick Watts which she described as ' the longest 6 months of my life' Mel is fighting fit and raring to go

Best known as one half of the successful duo Hamish and Andy.

Merrick is a Grapes of Mirth addict and a new fan of the Canberra Wine District region - in fact, any wine region - in fact, any wine. In short, he has a problem.

I whine, a lot, I also wine a lot.

I'll drink any wine, any varietal, red or white, as long as it's in a bottle. I draw the line at drinking wine out of a box.
