The Melbourne weather gods have finally started to answer our post-winter prayers and the season of weekend escapes is well underway. And now you've got another great reason to round up the crew and get out of town: a brand new music, food and wine festival, called A Weekend With.

This one's going down about three hours north of Melbourne, taking over an historic winemaking facility in Victoria's Rutherglen region from November 23 to 25. The 120-year-old venue on Mount Ophir Estate is set to host a thoughtful program filled with the good stuff, from tunes and art to great local booze.

The fun kicks off with a huge communal feast for 500 people on the Friday night, complete with beer from Sample, natural wines from labels like Boomtown and Chevre, and live music selected by Hope St Radio showcasing acts like Brooke Powers and Merve.

After a mass outdoor yoga session, Analogue Attic Recordings takes the reins, pulling together a musical lineup including Albrecht La'Brooy and Steve Magnusson, while a Daydreams-curated afternoon session promises sounds from Claudia Jones, Digital Afrika and SHOUSE. Later that night, you'll get to enjoy a visual feast, with captivating installations and artworks by the likes of DIN, Andy Garvey x Lou Karsh and Bayu.

The festival's capped at just 500 punters and you've got the opportunity to stay on-site within a three-storey French provincial tower or glamp. First release tickets are currently on sale for $235.
