Hands-on-Harvest Festival

The Robertson Wine Valley is proud to host its 11th Hands-on Harvest festival. This down-to-earth Autumn celebration takes place 1 - 3 March 2019 and offers families a chance to experience the magic of harvest.


This fruity fiesta is bigger and better than ever and is poised to shake up Route 62 during the 2019 harvest season. It boasts a wonderful programme of events that includes the towns of Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson. With more than 20 wineries, estates and other establishments taking part, this food and wine affair spoils visitors for choice with a wide variety of tailor-made activities.

Experience the grape’s journey from vine to barrel to glass by grape picking & stomping, vineyard safaris and blending & tasting experiences. Enjoy riverside lunches, vineyard picnics and food & wine pairings.
