Family Fun At Edwards Winery

Both children and adults had a great time at the family fun day held on the picturesque grounds of Edwards Winery in Gracetown on Sunday, January 27th from 2pm to 6pm. Entry to the event was by gold coin donation.

The news article “Edwards Winery’s family fun” has all the information you need to have about the event. It says: “Edwards Winery held its annual family fun day on Sunday to fundraise for the Leukaemia Foundation, featuring pony rides, face painting, hair colouring, food and live music. People of all ages came to enjoy the attractive setting and help out a very worthy cause.” http://www.margaretrivermail.com.au/story/1265543/edwards-winerys-family-fun/?cs=1807

Situated in the heart of Western Australia’s famous Margaret River wine region, Edwards Winery is regarded as one of the “young guns” of the local wine industry. The multi award winning family run operation consistently produces high quality wines that represent the essence of the area for which the winery is so famous. Brothers Christo and Michael (who previously worked at Voyager Estate as winemaker) are the viticulturist and winemaker respectively. Mike and Christo are the sons of the late Doctor Brian Edwards who set up the Margaret River operation with vine plantings in 1993.

Today, Edwards Winery comprises 120 acres of vines with varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Merlot and Shiraz. Mike and Christo have been improving the vineyard and winemaking process with every passing vintage, so it is no surprise that the wines are amongst the finest to come out of the area. This, in turn, translates into huge demand in both Australian and international markets.

Edwards Winery holds a family fun day each year to raise funds for an important cause. The proceeds from this year’s event went to the Leukaemia Foundation.
