We are going back to the 70s for a night of groovy dancing and wine in your best 70s attire.
Enjoy free wine tastings from our wonderful local wineries while you explore the exhibition Vines, Wine & Identity. Dance your way back in time with disco hits and show us your best moves with pop up interactive dance performances. Have a turn at grape pressing or see if you have what it takes to remove those pesky wine stains. If dancing is not your thing, chillax and enjoy the screening of the Oral History Project - featuring personal memories of the Hunter Valley wine industry.
