Unique Experiences – Burning of the Vines

Immerse yourself in a truly unique Hunter Valley tradition by embracing the ‘Burning of the Vines’ interactive team building experience.  Celebrated in European vineyards since ancient times, the Burning of the Vines ritual celebrates the end of the current vintage grape harvest and pruning of the vines. The event lets your guests connect with the past and future by writing down the challenges of the past year, and their goals for the future. These scribes are attached to cuttings which are then incinerated in huge bonfires to symbolise rebirth and ignition of your goals.
