It’s Chardy Time! After bottling up a successful sophomore run in Autumn – that witnessed some 55,000 people flock to Australia’s spectacular wine regions for a series of live music showdowns – the “The Best Chardy Ever”, Wine Machine, has officially uncorked six dates and wineries for its 2019 National Tour, getting the ball rolling in Adelaide, as per tradition, before the year’s end.
Wine Machine descends on the Mclaren Vale region in Adelaide this December 9th, where wine-lovers can soak up the historic ambience and farmyard charm of new venue Penny’s Hill Wines. Adelaide chardy crews are advised to be at the ready, with the South Australian event goes on sale this Thursday, July 12, at 10am AEST from www.wine-machine.com
Following the summer break, the dates pour out in full – an intimate event will take place in Tasmania’s peaceful Huon Valley, at a picturesque former apple orchard turned vineyard, on March 9th, before things scale up, with grape expectations of the revered Roche Estate, in the rolling countryside of Sydney wine region the Hunter Valley, on March 23rd.
Once again, Wine Machine will bask on the banks of the lake at Oakover Grounds in Perth’s picturesque Swan Valley, come March 30th, then on April 6th the tour will head to the perfectly provincial Yarra Valley region, returning to Rochford Estate, an ambient winery flanked by mountain ranges, growing vines that date back to the 1850s. The tour will wrap at Canberra’s Pialligo Estate on April 13th – a family-run venue replete with provincial garden pavilions and views of Parliament House, on the banks of the Molonglo River.
Fans are now being encouraged to sign up to the event’s pre-sale via www.wine-machine.com and share the word along the Facebook grapevine, for a chance to win helicopter rides and backstage passes to the upcoming Tour – more details on the Wine Machine socials.
