The Australian String Quartet
Picture a trail through ancient eucalypt forests, past pristine surf beaches, and the promises offered in hectares of vines leading to your next cellar door. Awaiting you are intimate performances with the Australian String Quartet, exceptional guest artists and indulgent gourmet experiences.

Over the weekend, the Australian String Quartet will bring to life timeless and exquisitely beautiful music, and this year will be joined internationally renowned cellist, Pieter Wispelwey and pianist Caroline Almonte.

Established in 1985, the acclaimed Australian String Quartet tours nationally to capital centres and regional communities each year. One of Australia’s finest music exports, the Quartet is regularly invited to perform at international music festivals and has toured extensively throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and Asia in recent years. The Australian String Quartet are privileged to perform on a matched set of Guadagnini instruments. This rare family of instruments was handcrafted in Italy between 1743 – 1784.

THE WINERIES

VASSE FELIX
Margaret River’s oldest wine estate, Vasse Felix focuses on crafting wines that best express the distinct characteristics of the region’s best performing varieties. In 2012 Vasse Felix was rated as a Top 100 International Winery by Wine & Spirits Magazine, USA.

McHENRY HOHNEN WINERY
McHenry Hohnen Vintners is a venture between pioneer Margaret River winemaker David Hohnen and his brother-in-law and vine grower, Murray McHenry. The McHenry Hohnen intention is to shape wines of place with verve and vitality. This is done by embracing a hands-off winemaking philosophy, where each wine is a focussed expression of its variety, its growing season and its individual site.

VOYAGER ESTATE
Founded by Michael Wright, Voyager Estate offers a truly memorable wine experience.  The vineyard’s location was selected because it has the ideal characteristics to create wines of elegance, complexity and balance.
