Get to this Rural Victorian Wine Festival for the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend

A weekend of sipping some of Australia’s best wines in rural Victoria, wine not?

By Demi Dalton 05/06/2019

If you haven’t any plans this Queen’s Birthday long weekend – one of the oldest wine festivals in Victoria is hosting its 45th year of celebrating Rutherglen. Wineries in the area will be participating what could be the largest celebration of vino on the Murray River, with people coming from the reaches of Melbourne and Sydney for a country escape.

There’s a full list of wineries that can be visited through the winery map, however tickets are selling fast so head to the website. Don’t let that deter you from the vibrant landscape of rural Victoria, the picturesque scenery is a draw card on its own accord.

Of all the wineries in the Rutherglen region, Campbells Winery would be hot on the map for the 2019 event. Music will be resonating across the vast front lawn outside the cellar door where visitors can soak in the sun’s rays and sip on some Bobbie Burns Shiraz while snacking on eclectic cuisines varying from woodfired pizza to gourmet catering by Taste Trekkers. Expect the crackling of the fire to be burning strong with the colder weather settling in and warming smiles from the dedicated Campbells staff will make for a welcoming stop along the winery trail this weekend.

The winery will be hosting a VIP tasting experience in which guests will have access to a select range of back vintage bottlings from the family cellar for $20 per person or sign-up to the Cellar Club for complimentary attendance to the VIP tasting experience.

The festival alone will make for any wine lovers kind of three day holiday, but if there’s anything to be said for Campbells Wine varieties – let’s just say the wines are something fit for, well, a Queen.
