Music is coming
We are proud to introduce a monthly line up of Music on Sunday afternoon through Sam at LiveWise Events who will be sellecting and coodinating the program. We have been approached by many musicians since we first opened to play, well this is THE opportunity your chance... the first show is set to be a stunner - cruisy intimate concert in our garden - have a look - Book now - tickets are limited  tickets on Eventbrite 
If you havnt tried it yet make sure you ask - we have made an Iconic barrel fermented Chardonnay. Its been 3 yrs in the making.  For those in the know, wine is made these days in steel vats.... barrel fermentation is much more flavoursome - what attentive craft wine making is about - $40

Visual Art

Artists are welcome to show in the gallery there is a nominal fee

However in the interest of Avril Thomas getting back to practicing art again herself you will be required to Curate - hang/promote the show - organize and run an opening  (we can put it on our fb page as an event and man the show - 8 weeks is usual here as our open hrs are Fri Sat Sun + public holls) Commission rate applies.
Meantime Works by Avril Thomas will be in the gallery - Magpie Springs Photographic Competition will run as usual consider August already booked.
