Geelong Winter Shiraz weekend - Clyde Park


Geelong wineries are preparing to invite you into their cellar doors to join them for the third year of the highly anticipated annual wine event, Winter Shiraz Weekend – A Celebration of Geelong Wine.   Held on 8 & 9 July 2017, you can enjoy two days of beautiful wine, food and entertainment as the Geelong region basks in the midwinter glow.

Wineries throughout the region will give guests the chance to soak up the warmth of open fires and outdoor braziers in beautiful surroundings while showing off their award winning Shiraz while talented Chef’s match the region’s renowned cool climate wines with hearty winter fare and offer you the chance to sit for a while and soak in the atmosphere.

You have the chance to ‘meet the makers’ with knowledgeable local vignerons and producers leading you on a path of wine discovery, take a tour in the three sub regions, The Bellarine, Moorabool Valley and Surf Coast and visit as many of the participating wineries as you like.

This year, as part of the event, there will be a special Friday night tasting at some of Geelong’s top wine retailers.  They will give you a taste of what is to come and  help you plan your weekend visit.  But don’t just go for a day, book some local accommodation and make a weekend of it!  You can also book yourself a designated driver for the day with For the Love of Grape, specialised wine tours.

The 2017 program promises to be a feast of food and wine experiences, gourmet produce, local music and wine master classes.  You’ll be tempted by so many amazing local wineries with something special on offer for everyone.

Entry to participating wineries is free so you can take home some local wine instead of worrying about ticket prices.

So throw off your jacket, take up a place by the fire with a glass of wine and enjoy a reprieve from the cold.
