Start your Saturday right this summer by sipping, savouring and strolling from location to location amongst wine-loving friends.
The much-loved APCO Foundation Geelong Wine Walk is officially returning to the thirsty city of Geelong in 2022. The annual event will once again see the streets, laneways and footpaths of Geelong CBD come alive as a hand-picked selection of Geelong’s best waterfront venues open their doors, transforming into the ultimate cellar door experience.
Going down on Saturday 12 February, the event will see attendees visit The Sky Wheel, Sailors Rest, The Geelong Boat House, The YOT, Fisherman’s Pier, Wharf Shed, Hygiea Boat and The Inn for a fresh, self-guided wine tasting experience. The participating wineries will be announced shortly, ensuring this will be an afternoon out that you and your friends won’t want to miss.
While eight premier venues will open their doors and showcase some of Victoria’s finest wineries and food, the best part is that it’s not just for wine lovers – you can spend your day sipping on whisky and gin from different distilleries across the region or even opt for a beer or cider, the choice is yours!
So how does it all work?
Simply, you choose the starting point, then gather your friends and walk to the other venues from there. At your starting point, you will be given a wristband that will give you access to all eight venues, alongside your own Geelong Wine Walk tote bag with wine glass, event booklet (including map), pen and bottle of water.
Not only does buying a ticket get you entry to all gorgeous venues to explore, substantial canapes at each venue, live music, and tasting for all wineries, distilleries and breweries involved, but all profits go to the APCO Foundation. From here, all money raised goes to the APCO communities to families and projects that need support.
What better way to start your weekend (and 2022) than with a walk – and one which involves wine. Gather your friends for this self-guided tasting tour and help raise money for the people who need it most.
