Throwing of the Grape
Saturday 4 February 2012
Oakover Winery - Swan Valley
Perth, Western Australia
So… what is ‘Throwing of the Grape’?
The second annual ‘Throwing of the Grape’ was held on Saturday 4 February 2012 at the beautiful Oakover Winery located a short drive from Perth, Western Australia.
Throwing of the Grape is a food, wine and music festival to celebrate the first wine harvest! You’ve heard of ‘La Tomatina’ in Spain where the streets are filled with over-ripened tomatoes… well this is the WA version (with grapes)!
We’re talking wine tasting, grape stomping, live music, DJs and of course GRAPE THROWING!
The 2012 event saw entertainment on the main stage by DJ Charlie Bucket & NFA from 1200 Techniques, Tourist, Scenic and Stillwater Giants. The RedBull Silent Disco was also on show featuring Mad Dog DJ's, Gene Bourne, OFFset, DJ Makka, Jus Haus?, KNO Agents, Dean Kerry and Gateway DJ's all duelling for attention on separate channels on the adjustable headsets.
Activities available to guests included Grape Squashing, Inflatable Gladiator Jousting, Water Dunk Tanks, Face Painting, Wine Tasting with the Winemaker, a Sangria Tent, Mechanical Bull rides, and of course, Grape Throwing! All Grape Throwing took place in a dedicated fenced-off area – so no grapes thrown were thrown at you if you preferred to stay clean!
A gourmet buffet lunch was provided for all guests to enjoy!
We look forward to seeing you at the next Throwing of the Grape to be held early 2013!
