For those of you who like to dabble in wines, you’ll love all the wines Blue Pyrenees Estate has to offer. Located in Avoca in the Pyrenees region of Victoria, all of their drinks are made from grapes grown in their own vineyards and produced in their estate winery, making their wines some of the very best Victoria has to offer. They have an eclectic array of wines, from reds and fortifieds, to sweet and rose, and are known for their award-winning Sparkling, Rosé, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
While the wines are certainly among the very best, the estate is also turning heads for their November Sun music event, which this year sees The Black Sorrows as the headline act. Held at the winery on Saturday, November 9, punters can spread out a picnic rug on the hill, sit back and enjoy a celebration of Australian music, great wine, craft beer, and local food.
After its successful first year, the second annual November Sun event features an amazing line up featuring Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows following the release of a new album earlier in 2019. Pop sensation Eurogliders will be supporting along with Victorian locals Loose Tooth, Emily Ulman and Libby Steel.
Joining the music is an equally exciting line up of food and drinks including the award-winning Forge Pizzeria and Timboon Ice Creamery, with more delicious additions to be announced closer to the date.
Hosts Blue Pyrenees Estate will be serving their range of estate-grown wines including their popular Midnight Cuvée and Bone Dry Rosé, classics like Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and some new vegan/preservative free options. If wine doesn’t tickle your fancy, craft gin and beer partners will be also announced in the lead up to the event.
Sitting at the foothills of the Pyrenees mountain range, Blue Pyrenees Estate is located just a two-hour drive from Melbourne and an hour from both Bendigo and Ballarat, making it the perfect distance for a weekend away.
Pack the car and pitch a tent at the local caravan park or plentiful free local campsites (more information on the website) to enjoy the starry skies and pristine natural landscape. Or, for those that prefer, there are buses running from Ballarat and Maryborough (return transfers can be booked with tickets), with a free hourly shuttle from the town of Avoca. How easy is that?
It all kicks off from 1pm on Saturday 9th of November, with set times to be released closer to.
First release tickets are sold out, while general release tickets are on sale now, with kids under sixteen free.
