Dance among the vineyards sipping wine to a soundtrack of some of Australia’s best musicians at Handpicked Festival 2019.

Nestled among the lush vines of Lake Breeze Wines in the boutique Langhorne Creek wine region, this year’s Handpicked 2019 lineup features some of the biggest names in Australian music including Amy Shark, John Butler and Missy Higgins. Triple J favourites Odette, The Teskey Brothers and Winston Surfshirt round out the impressive lineup. Beyond the stage, wonder through the magical nooks of the Cocktail Forest or sample local wines (Langhorne Creek is known for its Cabernet Sauvignon). Taste your way around a plethora of food trucks dishing up a smorgasbord of local produce and browse The Lane market where stall holders offering an array of local wares await. 

With so much on offer at one stunning, wine-filled destination, grab your mates and mark 9 November in your diary. Better still, make a weekend of it and explore this Fleurieu Peninsula gem with our guide to Langhorne Creek and beyond.
