Tell us a bit about Grampians Grape Escape. What’s it all about?

The Grampians Grape Escape celebrates the best of Western Victoria’s wineries, producers and makers. Held over the first weekend in May, festival-goers can explore a village of more than 100 stalls and enjoy everything from exhibitor masterclasses and cooking demonstrations to live music and guest chefs. It is a weekend of regional wine, food and music that cannot be missed.

The festival is iconic, celebrating local producers and makers from the region for the best part of 30 years. How have you built this reputation?

Simple – good food, good wine and good vibes. Grampians Grape Escape provides the opportunity to discover almost 40 local wineries and over 100 exhibitors in total, all at the foothills of the Grampians National Park.

What live music can we expect at the festival?

Grampians Grape Escape supports original artists, local talent as well as providing the party tunes as the day comes to an end. Expect this year’s festival to cover everything from rockgrass and Americana blues to heavy flamenco and trop-pop.

What makes the Grampians the perfect travel destination?

The Grampians is the ultimate road trip destination where you’ll find magic in every season. In winter, find a wonderland of cool-climate shiraz. In spring, dazzling wildflower displays. In summer, cool off in mountain waters, and discover breathtaking lookouts in autumn. 

Grampians Grape Escape goes down from Saturday May 2 to Sunday May 3. Find out more and grab tix and via the festival website.
