Families, couples and friends turned out to Longleat Wines on Labour Day to enjoy the Shepparton Arts Festival event Murch. Is. On. The. Map.
The lounge day saw hundreds of people stroll through the Murchison winery’s front gates between 11am and 4pm to enjoy the smooth sounds of jazz, soul and pop music group The Suspects against the backdrop of a rolling vineyard.
Longleat winemaker Guido Vazzoler said the festival event was for people to come and enjoy a cheeky glass of wine, some music and a gourmet sausage.
‘‘We love to support the Shepparton Arts Festival because we think it’s important to create a diverse environment in the country where artists can express themselves,’’ Mr Vazzoler said.
Guests sat back on chairs enjoying the sunshine and snacking on antipasto and cheese platters.
Shepparton’s Helen Jeffs attended with Steve Jeffs and Lea Watts and said the day had been lovely.
‘‘It’s a brilliant venue, beautiful weather, great music and great company,’’ she said.
