Welcome to the longest of long weekends – you now have four glorious days to eat, drink, see friends and family and hopefully you don’t have to think about work at all. At De Lisio Wines, we’re doing what we do most Easter long weekends, popping in to see the grapes as they ferment, doing pumpovers twice a day, watching the Baumé levels to tell us the sugar content of the wines, and raising our own sugar content with chocolate and hot cross buns when we can.

We would like to wish you a very happy and safe Easter from the whole De Lisio family, whether you headed off on a mini-holiday, you’re baking up a storm or you’ve decided to tackle that painting project. If you’re looking for something fun and relaxing to do on your holiday Monday, you can join us at our pop-up cellar door at the Visitor Information Centre which will also include over 50 stalls from The Vale Market on the lawns.

The Vale Market on a holiday Monday is always popular with delicious offerings from food trucks, local produce and handmade jewellery, gifts and homewares. There’s also free entertainment, music and buskers, plus a free bouncy castle for the kids. And if you haven’t had a chance to discover it, now’s the time to explore the new adventure play which was unveiled at the Visitor Centre at the end of 2017 – great tactile and energetic fun for the kids.

Our pop-up cellar door will then continue until 15 April, which takes us right up to the last day of Term 2. April also heralds that leisurely run into the cooler months, so whatever the reason you need to re-stock your wine cellar, we’ll be there for you with light relaxing reds like the ‘Puttanesca’ Sangiovese Merlot, warming blends like the NEW 2014 ‘Quarterback’ or the Premium ‘Catalyst’ Shiraz Grenache, and our ever-popular NV Sparkling, which you may want to have on hand to celebrate when the kids go back to school at the end of the month.

As always, the Stump Hill Café will be tempting us with wonderful, fresh housemade treats, and their cheese and antipasto platter is always on the menu if you want to sit on the deck or sprawl on the lawns to enjoy the view, a glass (or bottle) of wine, and escape with some of the best local produce.
