Plans for more wine in the vines

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Wim­mera Health Care Group Friends of the Foun­da­tion are pre­par­ing to host an­other Wines in the Vines fun and fundrais­ing event at Nor­ton Es­tate Winery at Lower Nor­ton south­west of Hor­sham.

The friends group is pro­mot­ing the Novem­ber 10 event, with a set­ting un­der um­brel­las among grape vines, as a ‘lazy Sun­day af­ter­noon’.

Lim­ited tick­ets for the pop­u­lar event are on sale from Hor­sham Plaza man­age­ment of­fice.

Nes­tled half­way be­tween the Grampians and Mount Arapiles, Nor­ton Es­tate pro­duces some of Aus­tralia’s finest award-win­ning bou­tique wines.

The winery’s frost-free el­e­va­tion and cli­mate, com­bined with low-yield­ing vines, hand­picked fruit and tra­di­tional-mak­ing prac­tices, pro­vide for true bou­tique wines of the high­est qual­ity and style.

Nor­ton Es­tate’s Arapiles Run Shi­raz, first re­leased in 2006 and shar­ing time in na­tional wine au­thor­ity James Hal­l­i­day’s ‘top 100 wines of Aus­tralia’, is the winery’s flag­ship prod­uct.

Other prod­ucts from the winery, in­clud­ing a 2016 and 2017 Wendy’s Block Shi­raz, have also rated among some of the best wines in the coun­try. Friends of the Foun­da­tion co­or­di­na­tor Al­li­son Roberts en­cour­aged busi­nesses as well as in­di­vid­u­als to buy tick­ets to Wines in the Vines.

“With our event be­ing in the mid­dle of Novem­ber we ex­pect some busi­nesses might buy staff tick­ets to use the event as a Christ­mas breakup,” she said.

Mrs Roberts said tick­ets were $30 and in­cluded the first glass of wine and shar­ing plat­ters.

She added that the event would in­clude live music and an ex­clu­sive wine auc­tion, with lim­ited bus tick­ets also avail­able.

Friends of the Foun­da­tion is a fundrais­ing arm of the Wim­mera Health Care Group Foun­da­tion.
