Most venues' events will run from 10.00am-5.00pm Saturday 16 March and Sunday 17 March 2024 with Margan Wines & Restaurant offering an alfresco Dining Under The Stars experience from 6.00pm Friday 15 March 2024 to kick off the festival.

Enjoy 5 x 30mL tastings of 1813's estate grown wines paired with five Veronton dumplings for $25.

Mount Broke Wines offers wine tasting, paired with delectable pasta dishes and wood-fired pizza, while you can discover the flavours and aromas of Whispering Brook's Portuguese inspired wines when paired with sensational local artisan chocolates. Explore lavender in the fields, in aromatheraphy bath and body products and even as a delicious gelato at Hunter Lavender Farm.

Meet and feed the curious alpacas at the Starline Alpaca Farm, enjoy the scenic lake view at Talits Estate with a glass of wine or draught beer, complemented by locally sourced cheeses, charcuterie, and homemade cakes.

Sip on $15 cocktails and refreshing $10 G&Ts, and sample our range of wines and snacks from food trucks, to the soulful tunes of a live jazz band at Kawal Rock Distillery, partake in some of the region’s best coffee and cakes all weekend at Magoony's Coffee House or try a winemaker-led Masterclass where you’ll taste 6 beautiful wines matched with 6 individual food pairings at The Little Wine Company.

Drink the Vikings' alcoholic drink of choice - mead - at Honey Wines and enjoy a delicious Seafood Platter matched perfectly with a glass of Chardonnay followed by a stroll through Winmark Wines' fabulous sculpture park and art gallery.

Celebrate the festival with a cooking class where you eat the chef-prepared food along with a glass of pinot grigio or treat yourselves to an antipasto picnic and chilled glass of Frosé in country style gardens at the iconic red barn cellar door of Greenway Wines  or try the flavours of authentic wood-fired pizzas, scrumptious gelato, and biodynamic wines crafted on-site at Krinklewood Estate.
