A balmy afternoon spent hanging out in an historic garden, quaffing bubbly and playing petanque — it sounds like something out of some European holiday, though come Saturday, January 19, you won't have to go anywhere near as far to enjoy this very situation.

The Macedon Ranges' Cleveland Winery is gearing up to host its inaugural Sparkling Pinot and Petanque event, delivering a fun summer session within its lush green grounds.

You'll have a chance to show off your lawn games skills on one of the petanque courses, with experts from the Woodend Hanging Rock Petanque Club on hand to help polish those moves. And you can enjoy sparkling pinot and cheese boards while you play.

The winery's famous underground cellar door will play host to blind tasting sessions throughout the afternoon, as well as offering a range of locally crafted Herbal Lore liqueurs and Tooborc Brewery craft beers.

Tasty bites will come courtesy of both Donald & Tuck Food Truck and Cleveland's own woodfired pizza menu, and there'll be a grape-stomping championship if all that petanque has unleashed a bit of competitive spirit.

Depending on the size of your crew, there are a range of ticket packages available, with adult single tickets starting from $20.
