DjintaMusicEnjoying a glass of Djinta Djinta Merlot while listening to the entertainment at Music In The Vines at Djinta Djinta Winery last Sunday are Roz and Bill Morcom of Outtrim.

THERE was non-stop musical entertainment at Djinta Djinta Winery last Sunday when the venue hosted its annual Music in the Vines event. Beggs to Differ, including former Men At Work bass player John Rees, Rustic Soul, the South Gippsland Wind Orchestra and Mary MacKillop Regional College musicians were all on the bill and combined with sumptuous food and superb wines; it was a great way to while away the afternoon. But, following Sunday’s frivolities, it will be down to the work of picking this year’s grapes this week with the prospect of an incredible vintage this season. “The weather has been a bit dry for the farmers but it has been superb for us,” said Alex Biro. “Today again it’s perfect, topping it off nicely.” With low humidity, warm days and a drying wind blowing through the vines; it couldn’t be a better finish. “We’re looking forward to producing some excellent wines this year, really bringing out the characteristics of this part of South Gippsland.” So it was a celebration in more ways than one and some good weather this week should allow the picking to be completed with the minimum of fuss.
