Have you made plans for the Queen’s Birthday Weekend, 8-10 June? If you are not heading to the snow then take time out and visit Heathcote. This quintessential Victorian country town celebrates Heathcote On Show presenting a huge array of events including wine tastings, craft breweries, masterclasses, food & entertainment and 26 cellar doors open throughout the region. Participating wineries include Heathcote Winery, Merindoc, Mia Valley Estate, Ida View Estate and Sanguine Estate and many more.
There’s no better place to taste the local vino than at the Heathcote Wine Hub, the region’s year-round tasting centre. Each day there are 24 different wines to sample, so you can compare and contrast a host of quaffable bottles. It’ll also be serving up live music every Saturday and Sunday from 12-2pm, and the courtyard is a great spot to rest and enjoy a glass of wine with a pizza or a steaming hot toastie. If things get a little cold, there’s an open fireplace with more than enough space for everyone to gather around.
Heathcote is 123 Kilometres north of Melbourne.
