Wine Country is back on the Murlawirrapurka Rymill Park island this weekend, hosting the second of a series of Refreshment Island wine parties. The first edition focussed on wine made on islands (Kangaroo Island, Sicily and the like) but for this pre-holiday edition, the focus is on fizz. There will be a range of Champagne producers pouring, as well as some local sparkling wines and pet-nats to sip through. Low & Slow will be in attendance providing eats, and the fun will run 1pm ’til 7pm. Tickets and more info here.
