THE stunning landscape of the Warby Range will form the backdrop to this weekend’s Trails, Tastings and Tales festival around Glenrowan.

Jenny Booth from Booth’s Taminick Cellars says the local landscape has provided inspiration to many regional artists who have settled in the area, some of whose work will be on display at all five participating wineries this weekend.

Families visiting Booth’s Taminick Cellars to taste their whites, reds and handcrafted beers are encouraged to pack their walking shoes and explore the region’s rich history along the Warby Falls Heritage Trail, or they can cycle their way comfortably from Wangaratta to lunch at Silent Range Estate, before tackling the Wangandary Walk.

Nestled high in the foothills of the Warby Range in a picturesque garden setting is Auldstone Cellars, where a French provincial style lunch is available and visitors can enjoy an exhibition of prints and paintings by local artist Helen Hill.

The historic grounds and buildings at Bailey’s of Glenrowan provide plenty of space to relax and enjoy a pizza while sampling their new release 2013 vintage red wines, while the native bush garden at Morrisons has stunning views to the Victorian Alps, and hosts an exhibition of works by renowned local printmaker, Fleur Rendell.

A variety of fine foods and premium wines will be available from each cellar door, with tasting glasses and programs available from Auldstone Cellars, Baileys of Glenrowan, Booth’s Taminick Cellars, Morrisons of Glenrowan and Silent Range Estate, or find out more at
