ABOUT GEELONG'S WINTER SHIRAZ WEEKEND FESTIVAL

We warmly invite you to grab your family and friends and join us for the third year of our highly anticipated annual wine event, Winter Shiraz Weekend – A Celebration of Geelong Wine on 7 & 8 July 2018. Enjoy two days of beautiful wine, food and entertainment as the Geelong region basks in the midwinter glow. 

FRIDAY NIGHT TASTINGS To kick off the weekend, on Friday 6th 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 Each winery participating in the Winter Shiraz Weekend have their own unique programs. Many include the chance to ‘meet the makers’ with knowledgeable local vignerons and producers leading you on a path of wine discovery. Click HERE for full program details

Take a tour in our three sub regions, 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 2018 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.

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