ABOUT GEELONG’S WINTER SHIRAZ WEEKEND

We warmly invite you to grab your family and friends and join us for the 4th year of our highly anticipated annual wine event, Winter Shiraz Weekend – A Celebration of Geelong Wine on 6 & 7 July 2019. Enjoy two days of beautiful wine, food and entertainment as the Geelong region basks in the midwinter glow.

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

FRIDAY NIGHT TASTINGS
To kick off the weekend, on Friday 5th July, 5-7pm we are offering complimentary award-winning shiraz tastings from acclaimed Geelong producers at 3 top venues:

BOTTLES AND BARRELS

UNION STREET WINE BAR

BARWON HEADS WINE STORE

SATURDAY & SUNDAY EVENTS

Take a tour in our three subregions, Bellarine, Moorabool Valley and the Surf Coast. 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. Talented Chef’s will 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.

The 2019 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 of our wineries with something special on offer for everyone, and kids are welcome.

So throw off your jacket, take up a place by the fire with a glass of wine and enjoy a reprieve from the cold. Why not book some local accommodation and make a weekend of it?

This wonderful weekend allows the Shiraz lover to explore, sample and learn more about one of Geelong’s hero grape varietals.  29 participating wineries are running interesting and diverse programs, which contain both free and paid elements.  Please click HERE for full program details and opening times.
