As you may have heard we the weekend of the 30th October to 2nd November was quite busy for us here at Redbank Winery. Unfortunately the planned fireworks to Celebrate the Moonambel 150th Celebrations at the Recreation Reserve had been cancelled due to poor weather.
On Sunday 31st at the Pyrenees Escapade everyone had a great day sampling wines and food from the region. We are very hopeful that numbers will increase over the years (as long as the weather is kind!).
On Monday 1st Neill hosted a retrospective tasting of Sally’s Paddock wines from 1998 to 2008 with a very special 1988 Redbank Cabernet. Twenty dollars paid for the tasting and a yummy barbeque lunch which was cooked by Achim Herterich!
Then Tuesday bought around Celebrations for the 150th running of the Melbourne Cup, in order to help celebrate the Sally’s Paddock Picnic was held at the Avoca Shire Turf Club, which was a “phantom” race meet. There was heaps of activities for the kids with jumping castles, clowns and horse and cart rides!
