Here’s some of our favourite ways to fill your long weekend exploring the Pyrenees while discovering exceptional wines.
Enjoy live music on Easter Saturday from 2pm at Dalwhinnie Winery with Cal n Pickles. Grab a group of friends, enjoy the panoramic views from the deck overlooking the beautiful vineyards, indulge in some of Dalwhinnie’s wines and graze on local cheese boards.
Across the road, local legend, Dave Nicholson will be playing at Taltarni Winery from 12.30pm to 4.30pm. Dave plays pop/rock from classic 1960s to contemporary hits, with the occasional country and folk songs. The perfect set to relax in a beanbag on the lawn or seated at the tables on the veranda with wine and cheese. Enjoy the gig with cheese platter matched with 3x Taltarni wines for $25 per person.
Back it up on Easter Sunday with a delicious day filled with pizza, wine and tunes at Summerfield Winery from 12pm to 4pm.

Please book via link
Don’t leave the Pyrenees without checking out the bob Jenyns sculpture recreation at Mrs Bakers Distillery. These amazing macro meccano sculptures are accurately engineered to 10x scale of the child’s construction toy. The playful sculptures are childhood dreams come to life and can be viewed at Mrs Bakers Still House every weekend for the month of April. That art of playfulness continues in the cosy cellar door where Mrs Baker serves up a $15 tasting tray of small serves of her five gins, three liqueurs and her vodka along with a range of garnishes from her garden and mixers.
We highly recommend that you book ahead for all of the events above to avoid disappointment.
