TAKE the wild har­vest trail and spend the week­end ex­plor­ing Kelly coun­try when the 23rd an­nual Glen­rowan Wine­mak­ers Week­end is held this Satur­day and Sun­day.

Mem­bers of the re­gion’s wine­mak­ing fam­i­lies in­clud­ing Max­ine Mor­ri­son, Jen­nifer Booth and Julie Booth look for­ward to wel­com­ing vis­i­tors to the foothills of the Warby Range for what prom­ises to be a truly sea­sonal food and wine ex­pe­ri­ence.

PIC­NICS are go­ing to have some se­ri­ous vin­tage flair at Mor­risons of Glen­rowan dur­ing the Glen­rowan Wine­mak­ers Week­end this Satur­day and Sun­day.

With a nod to re­cy­cling, re-us­ing and zero waste, Mor­risons will be pack­ing their Satur­day lunches into crates that were used by Glen­rowan cherry or­chards to freight their fruit to Mel­bourne in the 1950s.

Each crate will com­fort­ably serve two adults and in- clude good­ies such as olives, dips, a vege­tar­ian frit­tata, Gamze Smoke­house meats and a gar­den salad, with some home­made bis­cuits and slices to fin­ish.

It’s be­ing pre­pared by foodie Dianne Mor­ri­son, who said lunch will be served in these re-us­able con­tain­ers, and with pretty napery, cut­lery and plates sourced from var­i­ous op shops and the Mor­risons’ own col­lec­tion.

“We’re thrilled to be able to breathe new life into the cherry pick­ing crates we were given by Colin and Lurline Scott, former or­chardists in Glen­rowan,” she said.

“Equally, I’m re­ally pleased that the lovely mats and plates we’ll be pro­vid­ing for our vis­i­tors are 100 per cent re­cy­cled.

“So the plan is, you en­joy a crate full of good­ies in a spot of your choice in our bush gar­den.

“With live mu­sic, wine and cof­fee, it’s go­ing to be a lovely day out for cou­ples, friends and fam­i­lies.”

Mu­si­cian Adam Lind­say is set to play from 12pm to 3pm on Satur­day at the win­ery, where vis­i­tors will able to set­tle back and soak up the amaz­ing views of the alps.
