PCV Winter Run - 'Sault' @ Daylesford

Last Sunday, Robin and I polished up the 911 C4S and attended the PCV Winter Run to 'Sault' restaurant just out of Daylesford.

The day dawned overcast and damp but quickly improved. The group met at Bacchus Marsh Railway Station at 10.30 for driving instructions which initially took us via Trentham and the B318 to Kyneton Secondary College for a tasty morning tea prepared by the college's hospitality students. Suitably refreshed, we then set off for a forty minute drive to Daylesford. The earlier drive was a bit slow due to the damp conditions (or the speed limits) while this pre-lunch dash via more open and flowing roads was a bit more enthusiastic and almost legal, if a loose interpretation of speed limits is applied.

'Sault' is a new building on an established lavender farm. A most attractive property I must say. A serious gaggle of 110+ PCV members and guests overpowered the acoustics of the dining room however and discussions further away than the person beside you were extremely difficult. The food was modern and well received (a bit too much 'Bambi' for my liking however) and the wine list was excellent and contained many local offerings.

Whilst sunny all day, it was only 7.5 degrees when we left at about 4pm for the drive back home. Another well organised PCV event enjoyed by all.
