Highlight events include:

Meet the Maker | Freycinet Lodge | Friday 6 September

Start the weekend right with tastings from the hand of our local makers. From 5pm, winemakers from across the east coast region will gather at the Lodge for complimentary tastings, wine sales and good conversation at the Freycint Lodge Hazards Bar and Lounge. This is your chance to tuck a bottle of Pinot under your wing for later. Enjoy Melshell Oysters freshly shucked from their farm at Dolphin Sands, or share a platter of locally made cheeses from Hazards Bar and Lounge, to the tunes of much loved local, Pete Cornelius. This event is open to the public with no booking required. Tastings are free – just pay as you go for glasses or bottles along your east coast wine sipping journey.

Freycinet Marine Farm Oyster Tasting | Freycinet Marine Farm | Saturday 7 September 10am | $150pp

A farm visit normally conjures thoughts of cows and muddy shoes. Not at Freycinet Marine Farm. Head on down to their farm and they’ll serve you up freshly shucked oysters standing in the very waters from which they’re grown. What’s more, they’ll insist on pairing said oysters with a cool climate sparkling. Learn about how they harvest oysters and mussels and what’s involved in the growing, grading and delivery process. The expncludes a live oyster display from juvenile to fully grown oysters along with half a dozen freshly shucked oysters and steamed mussels fresh from the farm. Naturally, these are served with sparkling from up the road.
