‘Explore The Vines & Harvest The Honey’
A vine, harvest and wine experience with Briar Ridge Vineyard.

Briar Ridge Vineyard is very excited to launch their newest vine, harvest and wine experience for 2020 this Australia Day Saturday 25th January.

‘Explore The Vines & Harvest The Honey’ is a unique experience in collaboration with local bee enthusiasts Ben and Julia from ‘The Humble Hive Collective’. This experience will start with a guided tour through the vines to learn about the lifecycle of a vineyard, the importance of terroir, viticultural techniques and regional variation. From there learn about the fascinating behaviours of Bees and how they add value to the vineyard eco-system. Followed by a live and hands on demonstration on how to harvest fresh, local and raw honey in a gentle non-obtrusive manner; using a unique process called ‘Tapping’ from our onsite Flow Hives. A first-hand experience that will be one to remember and savour with your very own jar of Mount View Honey. Fun for all ages, interest levels and foodies alike.

Experience starts at 11am and runs for 1.5 hours (approx.) cost is $55 per person, includes glass of wine from the varietal range on arrival, jar of honey and wine tasting.
