WAHGUNYAH | Valhalla Wines is a family run winery started Anton Therkildsen and Antoinette Del Popolo, who both came to the Rutherglen area in 1997 for short term jobs and ended up getting married and starting a winery. Development of the property started with the planting of Shiraz vines in 2001 followed by Durif vines in 2003. The winery uses sustainable and natural farming methods, including rainwater harvesting, a worm farm waste system, composting and use of recycled packaging.

There are currently 9 different wines on offer, with a focus on varieties originating in the Rhone valley in France including Viognier, Marsanne, Grenache, Shiraz and Durif. They are grapes that are perfectly suited to the area’s climate and make the most of the local ‘terroir’. The Viognier is a particular favourite of ours.

And the name, well that comes from Anton’s Danish heritage – Valhalla (aka Viking heaven) was a majestic hall located in Asgaard which was ruled over by the god Odin. When Viking warriors died vallantely in battled they went to Valhalla where they enjoyed great feasts and, of course, great wine.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
