Geelong Winter Shiraz

Written by  Wine Victoria Wednesday, 30 June 2021


Wine Victoria and the Behind the Vines campaign are pleased to be able to support Geelong's annual Winter Shiraz festival on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July. Indulge in degustations, sip on the finest drops and enjoy the best our local wine region has to offer.

Let's support local and warm up the best way we know how - with a drop of Geelong's finest - Shiraz!  

The full program can be downloaded here.

Enjoy two days of beautiful wine, food and entertainment as the Geelong region – Bellarine, Surf Coast and Moorabool Valley – basks in the midwinter glow. This year, 26 participating wineries are running interesting and diverse programs, which contain both free and paid activities. The program is a feast of food and wine experiences, gourmet produce, local music and wine masterclasses. Many include the chance to ‘meet the makers’ with knowledgeable local vignerons and producers leading you on a path of wine discovery. Talented chefs will match the region’s renowned cool climate wines with hearty winter fare and offer you the chance to sit back, relax and soak in the atmosphere. You’ll be tempted by so many of our wineries with something special on offer for everyone, and kids are welcome.

Why not book some local accommodation and make a weekend of it? Grab your family and friends and plan ahead to discover the award-winning delights of Winter Shiraz Festival 2021.
