Get down and dirty each year with us at the Glandore Picking Day.
This bucket list occasion is a highlight each year for our Cellarhand members, friends, and guests. It is also your chance to be a part of what it takes to craft our wonderful wines.
We begin as the sun peaks above the horizon, and we beat the heat before heading to the vineyard. Our winemakers have filled your bellies with a delicious BBQ breakfast and barista made coffee to power you through the harvest. Pick as much or as little as you like but always remember, the day is all about having fun!
So, when our picking bins are full it’s back to the winery where the excitement begins! Stomping grapes, pressing fruit, and drinking our Chloë Blanc de Blancs while watching the winemaking begin on the fruit you have handpicked.
Our highly coveted Bocce trophy is up for grabs each year before we relax in the winery for a tasty 5-course menu matched to a range of award-winning Glandore wines.
This is a cracking day in the Hunter Valley and if you are looking for the ultimate wine experience for family and friends, you just found it.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of wine, food, and live music, all capped off with a spectacular bonfire and unforgettable fireworks display. Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Brokenback mountain range, our event celebrates the harvest season and the rich history of winemaking in the region.
Gather at Glandore in the afternoon to sip on our award-winning wines, enjoy a cheese board and listen to the live music on stage as you soak up the atmosphere.
As the afternoon wears on and the night falls, savour delicious foods created by local chefs and gather around the roaring bonfire as we set alight the ceremonial wine barrel, symbolising the end of the harvest. Then, dance the night away to incredible live music or simply just enjoy the starry skies as our bonfire lights up the Hunter and you relax amongst the company of family and friends.
Don’t miss out on this truly unique and unforgettable experience at Glandore Wines.
