~ Wattle Festival Sunday August 28th ~
How often do you have a chance to arrive at your wine destination on a steam train!! If you are coming out to the Hurstbridge Wattle Festival on Sunday 28th August, make sure you come and say g’day to the Shaws Road Winery folk at our stand near the Primary School, and try our wines, beer and apple cider!

Wine master class, conducted by winemaker George Apted
6.30pm arrival for 7.00pm start, finish 9.30pm

The winemaker will take you step by step through the four wines:
- Pinot Noir vs Merlot
- Oaked-Chardonnay vs unoaked-Chardonnay
Can you tell the wines apart if they are masked? What are the characteristics to look for? What’s better – Pinot or Merlot? (you’ll have an opinion if you’ve seen the movie “Sideways“!) If you “oak” the Chardonnay – how does that change the wine??
