Warwick Wine Estate is hosting another fun-fined family food and wine extravaganza over the Freedom Day weekend, that is, the 23rd until 28th April. Each day, the acclaimed estate will be offering wine enthusiasts the unique opportunity to sample the estate's finest and rarest wines as the doors to the Ratcliffe family's personal wine vault are opened to the public. Regular and one-off exclusive tutored tastings will be held throughout the weekend, affording aficionados the opportunity of sampling the winery's most prized collection.
For those with an adventurous spirit, the 'Big 5 Safari' will not disappoint as you enjoy a guided 4x4 vineyard tour and mountain top picnic, educating you on the five key varietals making up Bordeaux-style blends. This excursion up the mountain-side boasts a zenith which overlooks the vineyards, and affords one a panoramic view of Warwick and surrounding farms.
You can then sit back, relax and linger at leisure savouring each delectable component of the Bruce-Robertson-inspired 'Warwick Gourmet Picnic' at any of the scenic picnic spots on the picturesque farm. Bring your kids to this child-friendly farm and repose having complete peace of mind that your children are safe and entertained as they clamber up one of the state-of-the-art jungle gyms or bounce merrily on the Jumping Castle.
So, make the most of the last days of summer and public holidays, and revel in glorious scenic surrounds, sampling award-winning wines and culinary soupcons.
