Rose. Repeat at Howard Vineyard is the place to be this Crush Festival. Held on Saturday 27th January 2018 from 10am - 5pm, this family-friendly event will see you sipping on a crisp rose, whilst lounging on the perfectly manicured lawns of one of the region's most picturesque wineries.
Entry is $10, which gives you your exclusive Crush Festival glass to keep. Or if you are coming from another event and already have your Crush glass, then the entry fee covers your first drink. Punters are invited to wear a splash of pink and white, which will be helpful for when you inevitably splash some pink or white on yourself during the day.
You can just rock up and buy tickets on the door, however, to gain priority access it is recommended to book your ticket on their website.

Lounge back on the sprawling lawns overlooking the vines or see if you can score a spot on the cellar door's terrace, which will be hot property, so get there early. There will be tunes and entertainment throughout the day.
And what is a Crush Festival event without some mouth-watering eats to accompany your vino? Former Masterchef contestant Heather Day will be preparing an Asian inspired menu for guests to graze on throughout the day.
Howard Vineyard have some truly stunning wines from winemaker and top bloke Tom Northcott and the full range will be available on the day along with a selection of craft beers, ciders and soft drinks to keep everyone's taste buds happy. Check out Tom talking about the event and all the rosé inspired goodies you can expect to find on the day.
