Gap­sted Wines an­nounces bumper spring events cal­en­dar

North East Tourist News - - WINE COUNTRY -

GAP­STED WINES, a four star-rated win­ery just min­utes from Myrtle­ford, has a smor­gas­bord of events sched­uled for this spring.

With pic­turesque views across the Ovens Val­ley, Gap­sted Wines’ cel­lar door is open daily from 10am to 5pm and of­fers guests a re­laxed tast­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Whether you’re a wine novice or sea­soned con­nois­seur, the staff are adept at re­lat­ing their range of wines to your tastes and bud­get.

The most en­joy­able way to ex­pe­ri­ence our wines is to have them at their award-win­ning res­tau­rant, where the ex­pe­ri­enced chef serves up a sea­sonal menu with each item matched to one of Gap­sted’s de­light­ful wines.

Where pos­si­ble, in­gre­di­ents are sourced from grow­ers in the lo­cal area, de­liv­er­ing a true culi­nary treat from the Alpine Val­leys re­gion.

As the weather warms this spring so too does the events cal­en­dar.

Gap­sted’s Long Lunch – held on Septem­ber 17 or 18 – is just that, an op­por­tu­nity to put aside the best part of an af­ter­noon at their award-win­ning res­tau­rant to savour some of the re­gion’s finest food and wines (book­ings are highly rec­om­mended).

Oc­to­ber means the renowned Pre-Hol­i­day Sale, which sees shop­ping trol­leys jos­tle for fan­tas­tic bar­gains on qual­ity wines.

Sched­uled for Oc­to­ber 29-30, it’s the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to taste a wider va­ri­ety of wines and stock your wine cel­lar for the fes­tive sea­son.

If you en­joy a re­lax­ing af­ter­noon spent savour­ing fine food, wine and mu­sic then Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber are great months to visit, with mu­si­cians such as Claire & Co, Tree of Strings, Kevin Hag­gerty and Freya Han­ley per­form­ing on var­i­ous week­ends.

You’ll find Gap­sted just min­utes by car from Beech­worth and Myrtle­ford, and they are only a few hun­dred me­tres from the Snow Road turnoff to Mel­bourne on the Great Alpine Road.

Gap­sted is also lo­cated on the pop­u­lar Mur­ray to Moun­tains Rail Trail, which means we’re eas­ily reached by bi­cy­cle.

There are racks for you to store your bikes, and they can also ar­range to de­liver any wines you pur­chase at the Cel­lar Door.

For en­quiries or res­tau­rant book­ings, please con­tact (03) 57511383 or cel­lar­door@ gap­st­ed­, or visit­st­ed­wines.

You can also keep in touch via Face­book (www. face­­st­ed­wines) or In­sta­gram (­sta­­st­ed­wines) – and are en­cour­aged to post us­ing #gap­st­ed­wines.
