Northern Grampians Shire Mayor Cr Murray Emerson is urging the community to support the Grampians Grape Escape later this month.
Cr Emerson said the Grape Escape had grown into one of the Northern Grampians Shire’s biggest events.
The Grampians Grape Escape is on April 30 and May 1 at the Halls Gap Recreation Reserve.
“This year we’ll be treated to the magic of guest celebrity chef Miguel Maestre as well as all the wonderful local wine and produce you look forward to every year,” Cr Emerson said.
The action of the Barrique of Grampians shiraz will once again be a highlight of the Grape Escape.
Each year wineries from the Grampians region donate a quantity of their own shiraz wine from the previous year’s vintage to produce a unique Barrique of Grampians Reserve Shiraz, which is auctioned on the Saturday.
The auction is once again expected to attract a great deal of interest as it is always highly sought after by wine enthusiasts.
