The King Valley lays on a feast of things to see, taste and do over the Queen’s Birthday weekend.

 

The Queen's Birthday Weekend is normally a time when our whole region combines under the Wines of the King Valley banner and runs a regional event, Weekend Fit For A King. Last year, in 2020, we were unable to do this with the COVID-19 travel and event restrictions. This year, in 2021, we are taking a cautious approach and easing back into it by encouraging all of our wineries to run their own experiences over the weekend. There will be no formal region-wide ticket with a wine glass to use everywhere. The concept of our visitors using one glass, while traveling across the entire region raises too many health concerns to make it worth considering at this stage.

So, each winery will run their own activities over the Queen's Birthday Weekend...delicious food, wine tastings, entertainment...it will all be here to enjoy as always. All wineries are committed top COVID-18 safe practices to protect visitors and staff.

As we have the information to hand, we will add details to each winery's section. Also please check their individual websites and social media for latest news...
