Upcoming Event: Shortest Lunch in the Yarra Valley

The Winter Solstice (shortest day of the year) is this weekend and what better way to celebrate than with a tour of the Yarra Valley’s smaller winemakers. The Shortest Lunch allows you to wander from one boutique winery to another whilst enjoying entrée size meals, wine and live music. As well as being a fantastic day out, you are helping the community as the money raised from the entry/souvenir glass goes to the local CFA. You could also make a whole weekend of the two-day event by staying overnight in the picturesque Yarra Valley. To find out more about the event, check out the Shortest Lunch website:
