DIARY DATES: Burning vines, music and wine

The Burning of the Canes Luncheon at Whispering Brook is one of the most anticipated events in the Hunter Valley calendar. This event is based on the old French tradition called Festival of the Sarment, where the canes from the previous harvest are used to cook a celebratory feast over open fire, so the flavours of the vines are imparted into the food.

This year local Redgate Farm Catering will be providing a two course gourmet menu which will suit all tastes and budgets, and wine will be available for sale at the Whispering Brook Cellar Door.

There is also an exclusive opportunity to take part in a vertical Shiraz tasting ($20), where you can explore the flavours of one of Australia's oldest wine regions through six of Whispering Brooks exquisite Shiraz vintages.

Also, from 12noon on Saturday, the talented Darren Jack Acoustic Trio will kick off with some fabulous entertainment for the guests.

So come along and soak up the enchanted atmosphere with burning vines, music and wine.
