WHEN: 7th June 2014 to 8th June 2014
Rutherglen will once again be the place to be on the June long weekend for the annual Rutherglen Winery Walkabout.
From the beginnings in 1974 when the Winemakers' of North East Victoria joined forces to promote their quality wines, the festival has grown in size and stature. Rutherglen Winery Walkabout now attracts over 20,000 visitors and boasts three Tourism Awards including "Best Festival in Victoria" and was also named "Best Festival in Australia".
Armed with Walkabout glasses & wrist band, the young, old and in between descend on the wineries for a spectacle not to be missed.
An array of entertainment and activities are happening throughout the weekend. You'll find each of the wineries is offering something different from reserve tastings of rare vintages, to live bands, produce markets, unique breakfasts or special dinners.
