Finally…… we can reveal all of the fun to be had at BAIE Wines for this years annual Shiraz Festivals on July 2nd and 3rd for which we are open 10am-5pm each day. This is the first of only two events this year (the other being Toast to the Coast in October) when we open our stunning waterfront venue to the public – so make it a priority to come and enjoy. We will have our rustic and stylish winery shed warm, decked out with beautiful florals and copper lights – all we need to complete the fun is YOU! No bookings required and entry is free so it just gets easier and easier.
Leading into winter it has all been about Shiraz at BAIE Wines – what to eat with it, what to listen to while drinking it, who to share a bottle with… and we think we’ve got you covered.
So, for what to eat with it …. we’ve headed to amazing local chefs Simon and Alison Donohue to create a pop up canteen for the weekend at BAIE Wines. The menu they’ve come up with, for those lucky enough to be joining us will have you positively drooling in anticipation. Designed to either share with your friends or make it a 3 course meal all for yourself (just quietly that’s how we’ll be rolling) they will be serving up Steamed Buns with Duck and Asian Herbs, Homemade Gnocchi with Beef and Mushroom Ragout AND…. Sticky Date Pudding. Do we need to say anymore.. or will we just see you there?
Second… what to listen while sipping on your deliciousness glass of red goodness…. BIG TICK….. we’ve also got you covered! On Saturday (12-4pm) the awesome Matt Baird of Test Pilot Molly fame will be delighting the crowd with his signature acoustic tunes, whilst on Sunday (12-3pm) the one and only Johnny Rollins will be banging out a stunning live acoustic performance just for us!
And… who to share a bottle with – we’ll leave that up to you, but given it’s the 2014 BAIE Shiraz you’ll be sharing, you may want to keep it all to yourself. Of course if you are not a Shiraz drinker – but prefer one of our other much loved varietals including our Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc or Rose’ we will have them all ready and waiting for you.
One more thing that is sure to rock your socks is our once a year only Shiraz Deal that is available over the weekend. To add to the hurrah we are offering our Wine Tribe members the opportunity to buy 9 bottles of Shiraz and get 3 free – that’s $90 saving, valid for that weekend at Cellar Door only. Not a member of the tribe? – no worries head over to the wine tribe page to join for free in order to access this deal, as well as a $50 birthday voucher, Christmas gift and heaps more!
We can’t wait to see you there –its’ going to be an awesome weekend of winter fun!
Cheers Nadine and Simon
