'MUSIC IN THE VINES' a Little Bit of Paradise !

Joadja, one of the prettiest vineyards in the Southern Highlands will be mounting the first in a series of events on Sunday 23 January 2011 - a smorgasbord of music, wine and food.

With a 1pm start, ABC personality & local identity Nick Rheinberger and his band will present a range of music. Guests can mingle in the parklike grounds, have a picnic or relax under the trees, inspect the 'nerve centre' where the wines are made, do some serious tastings at the newly refurbished Cellar Door and enjoy pizzas from Joadja's latest innovation, a wood-fired pizza oven.

Based on the outskirts of the early 19th century Georgian village of Berrima, Joadja is the oldest and one of the few vineyards in the Highlands to use their Estate grown grapes to produce their own wines on site - and have been doing so for over 20 years. The varieties available from the Cellar Door include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay - lovely aromatic whites - and robust reds such as Cabernet/Merlot, a Reserve Malbec, Pinot Noir and soon a Sangiovese, now under trials. Winemaker and Joadja's owner Kim Moginie is justifiably proud of his achievements.

"We believe the quality of the wines is all about the unique terroir of this cool climate area, the age of our vines - some over 25 years old...and of course the skill of the winemaker," he said.
