Celebrate the grape harvest at Ascension Wine Estate with a wine weekend that is flavoursome and fun for all the family.
While the kids are enjoying the big bouncy castle and slide (vineyard pony rides and face painting also available), the adults can set back and listen to the upbeat bluegrass sound of The Pipi Pickers and the sultry jazz of The June Hayes Set while enjoying a glass of wine grown just metres away.
Festival platters will be available, along with traditional Croatian-style lamb on the spit. Please note that it is not possible to bring your own food or beverage to this event.
The energetic can jump inside a large wooden vat to stomp grapes before tasting their way through the exotic Ascension range as well as free samples of honey and olive oil from local producers.
For the competitive, the croquet will be out and the petanque piste will be groomed for play!
Admission by ticket only, limited tickets available for each day.
Bring your own blanket or chairs to sit on!
