Pick 'n Sip

Experience Margaret River like a winemaker

available February to may
“All great wines start in the vineyard”

It makes sense then, that if you really want to understand how great wine is made, you get out amongst the vines.

Join us for an experience like no other, a true vintage immersion where you’ll get the real deal when it comes to winemaking life during harvest. You’ll get your hands messy picking grapes, you’ll learn what winemakers look for in a great wine, and how they make it. 

Of course, there will be plenty of time to relax and enjoy great wine too, as well as lazy sun-drenched vintage lunches amongst the vines, and a surprise morning adventure on two wheels soaking up the region’s terroir and wine-making history.

This five-day food and wine immersion is curated and hosted by an expert team led by wine and travel journalist and TV presenter Cassandra Charlick and tourism expert Stepan Libricky.

You’ll be privy to insider wine travel tips, behind-the-scenes insider knowledge, and a side of Margaret River that you’ve never seen before, no matter how many times you’ve holidayed here – or how many bottles of Margs Chardy you’ve sipped.

Due to the intimate nature of this experience, places are limited and strictly first come, first served.
Please note that the itinerary is a guide only, seasonal variances may occur due to agricultural operations.
