There's nothing better than reconnecting with nature and experiencing everything on offer in your own region this weekend.
Picture yourself on the road, driving up to Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard, amongst the rocky ridge tops and beautiful grass surround, soon to be enjoying a variety of elegant and refined reds.
Are you with us?
Visit the winery over the Labour Day Long Weekend on Sunday, March 8 for Wine and Symphony.
Enjoy an afternoon of wine, cheese and live music set amongst the spectacular Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard, overlooking views of the Great Dividing Range.
Wine and Symphony is held at the most exciting time of the year in the vineyard: harvest!
The warmer days and cooler nights allow the wealth of grape varieties to finish ripening, perfect for harvesting (and even better for tasting).
Take a casual wander through the enchanting bushland, where you may even find yourself some new feathered friends!
Get ready to immerse yourself in the buzz of 2020 vintage with a Vineyard and Winery Tour at 2pm, providing you the wonderful opportunity to step away from reality and settle in with a fine glass of Shiraz and more.
Along with breathtaking views and delectable wine and nibbles, enjoy a unique "Diffusion" performance by Melbourne's own Shaun Keyt in the afternoon.
This captivating experience is a 45-minute visceral journey of electronic-ambient music performed using several instruments, creating a beat that will just make you want to get up and have a boogie.
The piece will be enhanced by Sarah Curro's ground-breaking semi-acoustic violin for a genre-defying experience you certainly won't forget.
Sarah is no stranger to Mount Langi Ghiran, having performed classical pieces at the property before and we're excited to present the added dimension to the performance this year.
If you're looking for something a little different, try the Pitch Music and Arts Festival at Moyston.
Pitch Music and Arts is a four-day celebration of music and contemporary art and brings together a community of like-minded people for an incredible weekend.
Offering a diverse program of international and local artists, Pitch Festival commences on Friday, March 6 and runs through until Tuesday afternoon.
