Winter Shiraz Weekend

We warmly invite you to join us for the third year of our highly anticipated annual wine event, Winter Shiraz Weekend – A Celebration of Geelong Wine on 7 & 8 July 2018. Enjoy two days of beautiful wine, food and entertainment as the Geelong region basks in the midwinter glow.

We’re giving you the chance to ‘meet the makers’ with knowledgeable local vignerons and producers leading you on a path of wine discovery. Take a tour in our three sub regions, Bellarine, Moorabool Valley and the Surf Coast and visit as many of the participating wineries as you like.

Wineries throughout the region will give guests the chance to soak up the warmth of open fires and outdoor braziers in beautiful surroundings while showing off their award winning Shiraz. Talented Chef’s will match the region’s renowned cool climate wines with hearty winter fare and offer you the chance to sit for a while and soak in the atmosphere.

This year, as part of the event, we will be holding special Friday night tastings at some of Geelong’s top wine retailers. Let them help you plan your weekend, book some local accommodation and make a weekend of it!
The 2018 program promises to be a feast of food and wine experiences, gourmet produce, local music and wine master classes. You’ll be tempted by so many of our wineries with something special on offer for everyone.

So throw off your jacket, take up a place by the fire with a glass of wine and enjoy a reprieve from the cold.

Entry to participating wineries is free so you can take home some local wine instead of worrying about ticket prices!

Brook Andrew—rethinking Antipodes

In 2016 Brook Andrew undertook a comprehensive study of the collections of the Cambridge Museums, and the extensive print collection of the British Museum, London, as part of the Australian Print Workshop’s 'Antipodes project'.

In the resulting suite of eight photolithographs—acquired by Geelong Gallery in 2017—he uses reproductions of 18th century satirical prints by British artist James Gillray as his primary source material.
