Deep in Mornington Peninsula wine country, Kerri Greens winery uses sustainable practises to produce wine from various vineyards across the Peninsula, resulting in a range of wines from their Citrea Reisling to the Lazy Bastard Pinot Noir, all maritime style wines, a signature of Peninsula-made bottles.
The winter solstice event at Kerri Greens will be a ‘warm welcome’ to the winter season, and follows the launch of the ‘Barrel Room’ art gallery, and their win as Gourmet Traveller’s 2021 ”Best Small Cellar Door.”
A weekend full of plenty of wines, featuring Mornington Peninsula entrenched artist Charlie Ryan, who’s collection of natural abstract works, “Cocoon” which represents “the things we can create and contribute, after a state of reflection or hibernation towards our entwining connection with nature, selfhood and community.”
The weekend also hosts a welcome for the Bunurong Land Council, as traditional owners of the Mornington Peninsula and surrounding areas. The council will host a Welcome to Country and customary Smoking Ceremony over the winter solstice.
Held in mid-June, from Friday the 18th until Sunday the 20th, the weekend involves afternoon drinks, a delicious range of food, art and good music by local musician Blind Benny, all weekend long.
The event is free to enter, but numbers are limited. Secure your spot, as capacity will be limited at the door on each day. A $10 charge pre-purchases your first glass of wine, and ensures entry on the day.
