2017 Harvest Feast

By Ian Firth

Saturday 20 May 2017 12pm - 3pm

Join us to celebrate the 2017 vintage with a Farm to Table harvest feast – the first Friends of Fowles Wine event held at our Upton Hill winery, taking in the incredible views overlooking the vines to the Goulburn Valley and beyond.

Take a seat at long tables amongst the barrels and savour hearty dishes sourced from the Fowles’ abundant gardens and farms, all matched to live music and a range of our Farm to Table and Stone Dwellers wines. 

You'll also have the chance to enjoy a preview tasting of some of the 2017 vintage finest wines; as well as trying “Federweisse und Zwiebelkuchen”– a traditional German harvest pairing of partially-fermented "feather white" wine and onion torte.

The harvest feast will celebrate the official launch of the much anticipated 2016 Ladies who Shoot their Lunch poster...  What adventure is "our Lady" up to this year?  We'll invite you to try and "beat the winemaker" in our wine spitting competition and bid in our annual charity auction in support of the Unicorn Foundation.

Tickets are $110 per person and include food and wine, and a return coach transfer from our Avenel Cellar Door or Seymour station.
