North East Tourist News - - Wine Country -

RUTHER­GLEN is al­ways the “place to be” on the Queen’s Birth­day Weekend (Satur­day, June 6 and Sun­day, June 7), as fes­ti­val-go­ers taste the lat­est new re­lease wines across the 18 par­tic­i­pat­ing winer­ies and in­dulge in the ex­cite­ment that is Win­ery Walk­a­bout.

For just $30 wine lovers will re­ceive their wrist­band and Win­ery Walk­a­bout tast­ing glass that is valid for both Satur­day and Sun­day, and then they are set to spend the Queen’s Birth­day Weekend tast­ing great wines and en­joy­ing the fun at the re­gion’s renowned winer­ies.

With crisp ta­ble wines, warm­ing reds, and world-class, lus­cious mus­cats on of­fer, Win­ery Walk­a­bout is a great way to taste and com­pare some of the best new wines from Ruther­glen.

Along with the wine tast­ing, Win­ery Walk­a­bout plays host to fab­u­lous en­ter­tain­ment and live mu­sic, back vintage tast­ings, for­ti­fied Mas­ter­classes, and de­li­cious win­ery break­fasts.

On top of this, add some friendly com­mu­nity events like the great Aus­tralian bar­rel rolling com­pe­ti­tion down High Street in Ruther­glen (Sun­day, June 7), the Ruther­glen Ro­tary Coun­try Fair (Sun­day, June 7) show­cas­ing some 300 stall hold­ers, and the in­fa­mous Ruther­glen grape stomp (Sun­day, June 7), and you have non-stop fun for friends and fam­ily of all ages.

Trans­port is easy over the weekend thanks to the TAC Shut­tle Bus (just $27 per day) which leaves from the Ruther­glen Wine Ex­pe­ri­ence and Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre in the mid­dle of town, and cir­cles around three bus routes and be­tween all 18 winer­ies.

Fes­ti­val-go­ers can hop on and off as they like in this safe and has­sle-free way to tour winer­ies.

The Re­gional Bus for $37 per day of­fers re­turn pick up and drop off to 10 re­gional towns around Ruther­glen, and the TAC Shut­tle Bus ser­vice is also in­cluded within that price.

As part of the TAC Shut­tle Bus ser­vice there is also com­pli­men­tary wine check-in.

Fes­ti­val-go­ers are ad­vised to buy tick­ets in ad­vance on www. wine­mak­ to avoid miss­ing out.

A Des­ig­nated Driver Re­ward Cam­paign, also spon­sored by TAC, op­er­ates all weekend.
