The ride

Two riders participate in a challenge at one of the wineries in 2021.Riders can hit as many wineries as desired!

Whether it's 5km, 40km or somewhere in between, you decide the length of your route! E-bikes welcome!

All riders will start at Kitsch Wines with a map of each participating winery. Start times will begin at 2:00pm and every 15 mins thereafter.

At each winery, riders will enjoy tastings and opportunities to complete fun challenges to be entered for prizes. Riders will receive a prize draw entry for each:

  • Winery you visit,
  • Challenge you complete and
  • Bottle of wine you purchase.
