An all-Australian music line up is set to light up the Peninsula at the first ever Winefolk event this December. Headlined by The Cat Empire, the Winefolk stage will also host The Beautiful Girls, Ash Grunwald, Cookin’ On 3 Burners and Sun Salute on Saturday Dec 7 at Mount Martha’s historical Briars homestead.


“We’re thrilled to bring together this stellar Australian line up for the first Winefolk” said Lisa MacGregor, Event Producer.

“The Cat Empire is known far and wide as one of the world’s greatest party bands, and their genre- defying music will no doubt get the crowd up and dancing,” said Lisa.

The Cat Empire will be touring Australia during October and November to promote their new album Stolen Diamonds, released earlier this year.

The Cat Empire will be supported by The Beautiful Girls, in one of only two shows they’re playing this year.

Ash Grunwald, Cookin’ On 3 Burners and Sun Salute round out the line up in what promises to be a fun and uplifting early-summer afternoon of Australian music.

Winefolk is a new music and wine event, presented by Red Hill Estate in conjunction with Scarlett Mac Events, the team behind the popular Peninsula VineHop Festival.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Lisa and the team to bring this event to life,” said Frank Fabrizio, owner of Red Hill Estate. “We’re celebrating 30 years of Red Hill Estate this year, so wanted to mark it by sharing our love of wine, music and the Mornington Peninsula.”

Lisa said the event is about showcasing great Australian music alongside Peninsula-based wine, beer and cider producers.

“We’re proud to showcase some of the best wine, beer and cider producers on the Peninsula,” said Lisa. “Jetty Road Brewery, Mornington Peninsula Brewery, Red Hill Brewery, Ten Sixty One Cider and Two Bays Beer will be joining us at Winefolk alongside Red Hill Estate.”

“Think chilled summer vibes, top-notch wine, beer, cider and delicious food. It will be a fun, memorable day out – and an easy way to get family and friends together for an end-of-year catch up!” said Lisa.

“Early bird tickets have already sold out, so we encourage anyone thinking about coming along to book their tickets soon.”
