Start your year right and take the time to enjoy the distinctive variety the Yarra Valley has on offer.
That variety is clearly on offer at Greenstone Vineyard where it’s yearly Sunday Sessions event lets patrons enjoy a divine tipple while listening to soulful music.
Every Sunday from January through to March, Greenstone Vineyards will be hosting their Sunday Sessions complete with live music, gourmet foods and of course, spectacular wines.
One of those local musicians is Healesville personality Jeff Jenkins, who will be playing an unaccompanied ‘roots’ described performance of his well-known Dylanesque show.
Having played at Greenstone several times over his career, Mr Jenkins said the Sunday Sessions were a nostalgic reminder of everything he loves about playing music on a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
“I’ve played here with different bands and it’s just a really relaxed, casual kind of groove,” Mr Jenkins said.
“It’s what I love about music on a Sunday … it’s a great spot, with fantastic views, there’s cool music happening and you’re in a winery could life get any better?”
Greenstone Vineyards certainly delivers on its promise of breathtaking views and is sheltered by the Christmas Hills that offers patrons some of the best panoramic vistas in the Yarra Valley.
For two hours Mr Jenkins and his voice will take you on a soulful dylanesque journey as he recreates Bob Dylan’s finest songs, even gving insight into their meanings and the stories behind them.
Friends and family can also relax on the deck or on the lawn and soak up the ever changing landscape of spectacular scenery over a glass of wine and gourmet cheese platter.
Every Sunday from January to March from 1 to 4pm patrons can enjoy great music by solo, duos and bands.
For the month of January patrons can enjoy and relax to music from the likes of Louise Mc Gregor on 14 January, Jeff Jenkins on 21 January, and The Campbells on 28 January.
