The stunning Bellarine Estate Winery has launched BBQ and Blues Nights for the winter

Layer up this winter and head on out to the Bellarine for an indulgent night of wine, bbq and blues.

Set high on top of the rolling hills of Bellarine Peninsula, the award-winning Bellarine Estate winery has given us another reason to venture out this winter with a newly-launched monthly instalment of BBQ & Blues – a live music line-up and dining experience on the stunning grounds of the winery.

Taking place right in the heart of Geelong’s wine region, foodie lovers, wine drinkers and music enthusiasts indulge in a night of soaring blues music paired with an authentic Texan BBQ dining experience. Running from 6pm to 10pm on Saturday nights, the BBQ & Blues events will feature a prominent musical guest and award-winning wines straight from the vines.

Keep up with the latest food and booze news across the region here.

As part of the new series, guests will be able to indulge in the winery’s newest food offering Texas BBQ @ Bellarine Estate, which pays homage to the heritage of owner Lizette Kenny who hails from Texas. Perfect for those wanting a heartier, while still luxurious meal, expect delicious sharing plates straight from the smoker to classic American smoked delicacies – including Lizette’s own family recipe for brisket.

As for the music, so far the likes of Alister Turrill, Phil Para Duo, and Musical Trivia with Don Fisher have been locked in with more to be announced soon.

It all kicks off on May 20, coinciding with Pinot Affair weekend, and continues through on June 10, June 24, July 15, August 5, September 9 and October 14.
