Fireside is the Yarra Valley’s brand new winter festival, celebrating smokey food, roaring fire, refined wine and rocking music.
The nine-day festival kicks of Saturday July 27, with an intimate tasting event that will make you feel like a local. Hang out with 11 of the Yarra Valley’s best winemakers at one of their favourite watering holes.
Rather than behind a table like formal tasting set-ups, you will find the winemakers wandering amongst the beer garden, sitting by fire braziers, chatting to guests and pouring their wines. There is no better way to learn about wines than hearing the passion straight from those who make them.
You will have the opportunity to taste wines from De Bortoli Wines, Helen and Joey Estate, Journey Wines, Mac Forbes, One Block/ Jayden Ong Wines, Punt Road Wines, Rob Dolan Wines, Santolin Wines, Seville Estate, Six Acres Wines and Yarra Yering.
Tickets include all wine tastings, a hearty feed of creamy mushroom and thyme soup and slow-cooked pork shoulder prepared by the Healesville Hotel, live music and a glass to take home. Vegan options will also be available.
