WHAT'S HAPPENING AT BAIE

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

BAIE Wines only throws open its doors twice a year for pop up cellar doors, and this is one of them… on Saturday July 8th and Sunday July 9th 10am-5pm. They know how to throw a party and this one makes for a wonderful celebration of all things Shiraz! We will be serving up the best of the regions winter warming food and wine, and music from a knockout line up of local artists. And if that’s not enough… this year we are adding a series of Masterclasses from some of our local favourite producers and makers for your added fun at BAIE – think winter florals, ricotta making, creating the perfect cheese board, and gin experiences. Grab you family and friends and don’t miss out on a weekend at the stunning estate.

MASTERCLASSES

To make sure you are having all the fun possible at BAIE Wines Winter Shiraz Weekend – we have invited some of our friends along for your creating, making and tasting pleasures. Masterclasses include a Winter Dinner Party Centrepiece hosted by Little Twig, Creating the Ultimate Cheeseboard with Lauren from Bear and Bean, The Ultimate Winter Gin Experience hosted by Barwon Heads Wine Store and Ricotta Making, Cheese Tastings and Shev and Tiramisu with Drysdale Goats Cheese Corinne Blackett! Masterclasses are capped at 15 people. Please see Evenbrite for all further details and to book your spot!

MUSIC & FOOD
