As winter has truly set in, our weekend adventures divert from markets and cocktails to art and fine wine. A seamless transition.
Renowned winemaker Robert Mondavi once said; “Making good wine is a skill, making fine wine is an art”. So what happens when you combine fine wine and art into one weekend? Our guess is a true stimulation of the senses – the very theme of the Winter Solstice 2022 event.
Our friends at Kerri Greens welcome you once again to the Winter Solstice after a successful celebration of art and wine last June.
Held over three days, we have broken down the key events for you to choose from.
Friday 24 June from 5pm | ‘VISION’
A glass of Kerri Greens wine on arrival accompanied by a live performance from Jake Amy will be the perfect start to the weekend. A grazing table will keep your tastebuds occupied as you delve into artwork from local creators; Steve Salo, Maria Radun, Jane Korneyko, Jayson Hornibrook, Nilo Ceramics and Liz Walker.
A $25 ticket includes access to an epic grazing table and a glass of wine on arrival. With limited spaces available, be sure to book your spot soon.
Saturday 25 June 9am - 5pm | ‘SENSE’
Two activities over the day are designed to take you on a sensory journey through movement, music, food and wine.
Part I: 9am - 11.30am
Yoga, Wayapa, and breath work workshops will be led by esteemed local practitioners. With a limit of 25 places, the experience will be boutique and intimate. A $100 ticket includes access to the sessions with limitless tea, a light breakfast and – for those feeling up to it – an early wine.
Part II: 11.30am - 5pm
After easing into the day with the morning activities, the afternoon picks up the energy with live music by Steph Strings and DJ Nathan Coutts. Enjoy food by Nem N' Nem food truck around the fire before exploring the art exhibition. Wine and beer will be flowing, and your $45 ticket will include the first drink.
Sunday 26 June | 11.30am - 5pm | ‘COMMUNITY’
The final day of the Winter Solstice will feature Living Culture sharing Indigenous knowledge and practices of the Bunurong / Boon Wurrung. Following a Cleansing Ceremony, you will have a final chance to explore the art exhibition with the cruisey tunes of DJ Blind Benny as your backdrop.
Just like Kerri Green's approach to winemaking, the weekend promises to be an experimental delight.
