A FINE DROP:
Pete Freeman from Pomonal Estate pours Nekite Krog a shiraz during the Grampians’ Seriously Shiraz weekend. Seriously Shiraz Wine Festival, which coincides with the first weekend of spring, involves wineries, events and attractions across the region surrounding Grampians National Park. Grampians Tourism chief executive Marc Sleeman hailed this year’s event a success, with visitor numbers ‘significantly’ higher than previous years. “When we bring this industry together for this type of collaborative event it not only showcases the wines we have here, but all other attractions that put this destination on the map,” he said.
