Bat­tle lines are drawn

McIvor Times - - HEATHCOTE WINE AND FOOD FESTIVAL -

HEATH­COTE’S fa­mous Shi­raz wines woo drinkers around the world with their renowned full-body flavour and char­ac­ter.

Now they’re vy­ing for favour from Bat­tle of the Vines co-host Frank Moy­lan — and a spot in the hit SBS Food Net­work pro­gram.

Frank and the crew from Bat­tle of the Vines will film the TV pro­gram’s first re­gional bat­tle at this year’s Heath­cote Wine and Food Fes­ti­val on Oc­to­ber 6 and 7.

Heath­cote has picked up the first ‘re­gional wild­card’ for the 2019 se­ries of Bat­tle of the Vines, which is of­fer­ing spots for 64 of the re­gion’s best Shi­raz to be blind-tasted by Moy­lan and other judges; who will fi­nally se­lect that one spe­cial Heath­cote bot­tle to ap­pear on the show that pits state against state to find out who makes the best wine.

Each win­ery is given one en­try into the Bat­tle of the Vines and a sec­ond en­try may be sub­mit­ted at a fee of $100.

Sec­ond en­tries will be ac­cepted on a first lodged ba­sis and un­til all 64 spots are full.
