I know it’s almost impossible to think about what you’ll be doing in 3 months time, but if a break away in September sounds appealing then now is the time to book! If you have been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE Sculpture in the Vineyards.
Read about the 2020 Festival here
We (Valle Laguna) host the judges for the weekend, we are sponsors of the event and I volunteer as a guide on the village walking tours. Like I said…I love this event. Without doubt the weekends are the busiest time to visit the festival, but last year a growing number of people took advantage of the quieter mid week days to come and stay. This year the festival committee have compiled a wonderful package to encourage more people to visit mid week. If you book mid week accomodation anywhere in the Wollombi Valley (hopefully with us at Valle Laguna 😁) then you can include the following events to your stay for FREE!
Twilight Welcome to Country and Curator guided tour of Sculptures.
Local indigenous man Tim Selwyn from Wailan country will perform a traditional Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony. A Festival Curator will take you on a guided tour of the vineyard’s sculptures with canapés and a glass of wine or cider.
Undercliff Winery – Tuesday 14th September at 3.00pm
Stonehurst Cedar Creek – Tuesday 21st September at 3.00pm.
