Set on the sweeping backdrop of the Brokenback Mountain Range, Allandale Winery is the home of award-winning Chardonnay, Semillon and Pinot Noir. Sip on the 2019 Chardonnay while tucking into Lovedale pork and fennel sausages with creamy soft polenta, or vegan-friendly tomato braised eggplant ragu. Chocolate and almond cannoli might just tip you over the edge into foodie bliss. The toe-tapping fun starts with the versatile electro sounds of Adam Katz and Nada Leigh.
Get down to rock, funk and soul on the dancefloor with Saxanova and the Hornet, at Tatler Wines. This 100-tonne winery is known for incredible Mediterranean food, so tempt yourself to wild Atlantic salmon drizzled with olive oil, lemon and herbs, paired with Pinot Gris. Aged brie and cheddar with Spanish quince paste, dried apricots and crackers keep you moving onto the next song.
Sandalyn Wilderness Estate
Surrounded by olive groves among the vineyards, Sandalyn will welcome you with the fun rock, funk, pop and blues tunes of local band, Phonic. Soak up the panoramic views over the Molly Morgan and Brokenback ranges while sipping Shiraz, Verdelho and sparkling Cuvee. When hunger strikes, you’ll have a choice between lamb kofta skewers, braised wagyu beef and mushroom lentil cakes, with spiced cherry pavlova to satisfy sweet cravings.
With a five-star rating from James Halliday for producing amazing Chardonnay, Semillon, Clare Valley Riesling and more, this state-of-the-art winery is a connoisseur’s dream. Newcastle band, Vogue, join the energetic playlists of Silent Shout to keep the crowds jumping…or head nodding if that’s more your thing. If zesty pickled slaw, truffled Paris mash and loaded cheesecake sound good to you, feel free to let your taste buds water in advance.
Wandin Valley Estate
This elegant, 100-acre property is a haven for kangaroos, and an award-winning wedding property. Say, “cheers” with a crisp Semillon as Kazzie Band entertains you with high-energy covers, and nibble local cheese from a bento box. That’ll set you up nicely for delicious flame roasted Yuzu and wild fennel salmon fillet, or autumn vegetable curry for vegetarians.
