There are many ACT locals who support and enjoy drinking the wines of Rutherglen and the King Valley, so we thought why not come to their doorstep? It's a great weekend away for us and an opportunity to meet old and new lovers of wine and produce from these two regions.
- On Saturday 5th of July, be entertained by the winemakers of the King Valley with their 'Long Lunch' held at The European in Kingston. The menu has been designed with a Mediterranean flair in order to best match the wines that the King Valley has become renowned for.
- Saturday evening, the winemakers of Rutherglen take over to host a three course alternating menu at award winning restaurant, The Boat House by the Lake.
- On Sunday 6th of July, arrive at Rydges Lakeside from 10am to work your way through 21 wineries and 4 producers showcasing the best regional wine and produce from the North East region. Speak directly to the winemakers and producers and purchase some your favourite products to take home.
- At 11am and 1.30pm on Sunday, there is a rare opportunity to meet Australia's top sommelier, Franck Moreau MS, and be guided through an informative and intimate tasting of the top drops from the two regions.
