What’s on at Cassegrain
Oysters in the Vines 2020
EVENT UPDATE // CANCELLED (as at 22/12/2020)
It is with heavy hearts that we have had to cancel our 15th running of Oysters in the Vines here at Cassegrain Wines. In light of recent heavy rainfall, our oyster farmers have been unable to harvest oysters for the event. We are also mindful with the recent COVID outbreak in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney, for public safety, it is for the better we do not proceed with the event. Our thoughts go out for our hard working oyster growers here on the Mid North Coast.
Who could have thought 2020 could have become worse! Here at Cassegrain we entered 2020 with many of our grape regions in full drought. Then we had bushfires and smoke taint that devastated much of the 2020 grape harvest across all our regions we source grapes from. Then COVID and its impact here throughout Australia. Then in November China decided to ban Australian wine imports. Then what was shaping up to be a great oyster season has now been brought to a sudden end due to the recent rain event.
We were really looking forward to signing off on 2020 with you at Oysters in the Vines. It should have been a couple of great days celebrating the good things in life. 2021 Can’t come soon enough!
All is not lost though, our winery remains open through the holiday season (with the exception of Christmas day). More than ever we look forward to welcoming our locals and visitors to our region to the winery during December and January.
We take the opportunity to wish you a safe and very Merry Christmas and we look forward to a happy and prosperous 2021!
