Windowrie is busily preparing for its annual ‘Windowrie Week’ from Saturday 25 October to Sunday 1 November at its vineyards in Canowindra, New South Wales.
The annual Windowrie Week, now in its 10th year, is designed to encourage Windowrie’s customers to come to the winery and get to know the O’Dea family and enjoy a range of casual events, such as wine tasting, gourmet produce, art and entertainment.
The week kicks off with Windowrie and ‘hatted’ restaurant Neila partnering up as part of the Sydney International Food Festival, where guests will be presented with procession of hand held dishes, matched with Windowrie’s regional wines amid the barrels in the winery.

Visitors can then enjoy exploring the Central Ranges around Cowra, Canowindra, Orange and Bathurst before coming back to Windowrie on Friday 30 October to camp in the vineyards over the weekend. From Friday through to Sunday, visitors are invited to enjoy a range of activities including:
A late, causal Sunday morning breakfast is also being provided at The Lodge.
“We are hoping to have a fabulous weekend where all the people coming can get to know each other in a welcoming environment,” explained event organiser and daughter of David and Wizz, Nook O’Dea.
“Word has spread via our ‘The Mill’ fan page on Facebook as well as through Twitter. These networks are proving to be a great way to get the word out. We are only offering 80 tickets to camp in the vineyards, as we are keen on maintaining a personal feel to the event.”
Tickets and further information on the ‘Windowrie Week’ is available from The Mill on +612 6341 4141 or at www.windowrie.com.au
