Another successful Mid-winters Weekend of Music at Munari Wines!
For those who have followed us over the years you will be familiar with the annual “Heathcote on Show” event. Taking place over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June & organised by the Heathcote Tourism Committee, it is an event designed to showcase the exciting array of wine, food and entertainment that our gem of a region offers.
Every year the highlight at Munari Wines is our musical act, and this year we upped the stakes. We hosted not one but 5 incredibility talents bands who stole the show. The cellar door was open for free tastings all weekend and guests enjoyed the comfort of our heated marquee to watch the acts. When hungry they enjoyed good old fashioned soul food from our friends at Soul M8’s food van including burgers, rich soups, gourmet spring rolls and decadent onion rings. When tired from the entertainment they enjoyed coffees from Brew 2 U Coffee Van, and of course, when thirsty they bought cold Prosecco & Chardonnay and warmed up with our sumptuous array of reds.
This year we launched our inaugural “A mid-winter’s night of music at Munari Wines” on Saturday 9th of June. This special musical event was head lined by Geelong locals Izzy Losi & the Auracles and supported by Melbourne rock bands Dal Santo & Honeybone. Each band wowed and impressed the crowd and punters couldn’t resist dancing to one band or another. Rumour has it that no one was more impressed and entertained than Mr Munari himself who was spotted enjoying a Shiraz with a big smile.
Throughout the weekend Honeybone, Louie & the Pride and acoustic duo PureBlack added to the perfect weekend and when Monday afternoon rolled around we found that our guests were sad to leave.
We would like to give a huge thank you to everyone involved in the success of our event including; Busy Kingdom, Honey Bones, Izzy Losi and the Auracles, Dal Santo Louie & The Pride and Pure Black for their incredible and memorable performances on Saturday night and over the course of the long weekend. Also to our fantastic food and beverage partners Soul M8's Food Truck, Brew 2 U Mobile Coffee Van and Palling Bros Brewery for keeping our guests fed and refreshed. And last but not least, a huge thank you to our guests who were a brilliant bunch, I hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did and thank you for your support. We can’t wait to see you again next year for a bigger, better, weekend of music, wine and food.
