Thousands of Heathcote wine lovers were at the region's showcase celebration food and wine festival over the weekend where Peregrine Ridge won its way through the Heathcote challenge for a spot in the 2019 SBS Food Network program Battle of the Vines.
They sampled wines from more than 40 local wineries - trophy and gold medal winning wines and new releases again showing the depth and maturity of the region.
Extra special buses were needed this year to bring patrons to the festival. Many people had travelled to central Victoria for the weekend, including the 17th Heathcote Wine and Festival in their itinerary.
Music from some of Victoria's leading blues and roots musicians added to the atmosphere and built on the partnership between Heathcote Winegrowers' Association in Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival,
The 2019 festival will be held on the weekend after AFL grand final. The date will be confirmed following release of the AFL draw expected next month.
