A season change is as good a reason as any to restock that wine collection with some new goodies — and if you ask Bendigo's renowned Balgownie Estate, it's a pretty great excuse for a wine-fuelled party, too.

On Sunday, September 18, the award-winning winery is embracing the new season by hosting its inaugural Spring Fair, featuring food, fresh produce, live tunes and a whole lotta wine. Specifically, there'll be a clearance sale slinging all the past vintages and bin-end wines your heart could desire, at discounts of 20-percent and more.

As well as stocking up on vino, you'll be able to shop an array of produce, craft, jewellery, pantry goodies and other artisan wares at a pop-up market devoted entirely to local makers and retailers. On top of that, there'll be barbecue eats courtesy of the Maiden Gully Marong Lions Club, plus live tunes on the deck.

Loving the vino? You'll find ​​long-time winemaker Tony Winspear manning the Balgownie cellar door, should you fancy tasting a few pours throughout the day. And of course, if you're keen for a sleepover, you can spend the night under the stars with a stay in the winery's glamping retreat.
