Crystalbrook Byron is hosting a cellar door series this winter with some of Australia’s finest wineries
While it’s easy to hole up at home during the chilly season, we’re always looking for reasons to throw off the blankets and go explore. During the month of August, Crystalbrook Byron’s Forest Byron Bay is joining forces with some of the best wineries in South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales for a month-long series of long lunches and cellar door pop-ups. If this isn’t an excuse to pack up the car for a roadtrip south, we don’t know what is.
Does spending a luxe weekend wining and dining with friends sound good to you? If yes, then boy, do we have the event for you. Every weekend in August, Crystalbrook Byron will host some of the most beloved wineries and wine makers from around Australia. On Saturdays, the winemakers will take over the hotel’s restaurant Forest for a lavish long lunch, which will see decadent dishes paired with delightful drops. August 6–7 will feature dynamite drinkmakers Dal Zotto Wines (hello, prosecco!), August 13–14 will see Barossa beauty Whistler Wines visit the venue, while Mclaren Vale’s Nick Spencer Wines will pour sumptuous sips from August 20–21. Finally, August 27–28 will see Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards visit the Byron favourite with 2022 ‘Winemaker of the Year’ Corrina Wright in tow for the long lunch.
For those looking for something more relaxed, Crystalbrook Byron’s Rainforest Lawn is the place to perch. The lush space will transform into a vineyard-inspired oasis serving wine flights, tastings, charcuterie boards and some good tunes on each Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Grape-juice lovers will be able to sip and snack to their heart’s content, cosy up next to crackling firepits or just find a picnic rug on the lawn to stretch out those legs.
