Pop and Pour is sure to be a hit with everyone

By Riverine Herald

AFTER the huge success of last year’s inaugural Pop and Pour Festival, it’s back bigger and better and it’s on this Saturday.

With six local venues showing off their beverage and culinary delights.

The progressive food, drink and tunes festival across our Perricoota wine region of Echuca-Moama takes patrons to St Anne’s Winery, Three Black Sheep, The Woolshed, on board the Pride of the Murray Paddlesteamer, Perricoota Vines Retreat and the pop-up venue Bush Dance.

Spend the afternoon moving from venue to venue using the pop and pour shuttles to indulge in an afternoon of the region’s best producers, live musicians and gastronomical delights.

From noon until 6pm on Saturday you can move between the six venues.

The huge line-up of local musicians will perform at 2pm and 4pm. Each venue has their own acts for revellers to enjoy.

At St Anne’s Winery, the music is by Justin, Three Black Sheep hosts Heidi Moncrieff, Three’s A Crowd will take to the stage at The Woolshed, the pop-up Bush Dance will have The Kissin Cousins.

Pride of the Murray welcomes Wazza and Perricoota Vines Retreat shows off Damien Cowell’s Disco Machine featuring comedian Tony Martin.

VIP tickets have sold-out but general admission and platinum tickets are still available for $55 and $200 respectively.

The general admission tickets include the pop and pour wine glass, live entertainment and access to the shuttle services.

The platinum tickets have a whole stack of extras including a pre pop and pour cruise, two course private paired lunch at Morrisons Winery, access to a reserved VIP seating area and a meet and greet with Damian Cowell and Tony Martin post their performance — just to name a few.

From 5pm buses will be returning patrons to the American Hotel. The last bus returning to town is at 6pm.

There is a selection of beer and ciders available at all venues.
