Lovingly hand-picked each season, Wine Machine take the curation of the soundtrack to your favourite day of the year very seriously but don’t pop the cork on the lineup until the last minute (bar the already announced McLaren Vale event).

The organisers have promised a bumper 2020 vintage with the return of their signature “Cellar Door” oasis of epicurean delights, vintage activities and bohemian comforts. In addition, the wine-makers are delighted to announce they are turning the standard festy-festival-fare on its head with the roll-out of their gourmet “Le Marche” activations in all states, where the top local chefs and farmers lovingly present the tastes of the region in a farmers market bazaar the likes of which have not been seen before.

Wine Machine is also very pleased to announce that for the first time ever, tickets will be available to their famed long-table lunches in each state! Come dine with the artists, wine-makers, farmers and VIPs in the cascading sunshine among the vines as we toast the fruits of this incredible land we call home.

In keeping with their mission of encouraging emerging creatives, Wine Machine will again throw the door open to a $10,000 art grant with the winner to exhibit their creation at the event in each state as well as a national music prize with the top act earning their chance to perform onstage.
