2020 Long Lunch in the Vines
We are thrilled to invite you to our 2020 Long Lunch in the Vines on March 7th, 2020.
We held our first Long Lunch in the Vines in 2019 as a special 21st anniversary celebration with friends and fans of our wine. A sell-out event and due to very popular demand, we have decided to turn this one-off into an annual event to celebrate the start of harvest, and toast to our hopes for a stellar vintage 🙂
If you attended this year, you’ll know that Long Lunch in the Vines includes a fabulously fun long lunch of great wine, food and live music…and yes, dancing on the cellar door lawns….all while you soak up the beautiful vineyard surrounds and views. And as requested, we have extended the event so you can take full advantage of the opportunity to dance on the lawns to live music!
As fans of our wine, we would like to invite you to join our celebrations. Tickets are strictly limited and are on a first come, first served basis. Last year tickets sold out in a matter of weeks, so if you would like to come, or would like to purchase tickets as a Christmas gift, please do so early to avoid disappointment.
We encourage everyone to catch the bus to our long lunch so that you can truly revel in all that is on offer. Bus tickets are purchased separately, as some guests are travelling from areas the bus route doesn’t cover. Don’t forget your bus ticket!
And to reward and thank long standing Société de Vin members*, we are offering $15 off each lunch ticket for 2 tickets per member 😊 We will be in touch separately with these members to provide details about how to access this discount.
Lunch, bus and accommodation details are below. We so hope that you and your friends can join us!
Richard, Janet, Amanda & Will
