The Bendigo Weekly on Friday 15 January 2016 reported the return of the Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival to Bendigo. The popular Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival will be held in Rosalind Park on Saturday 7 May 2016.
Bendigo Winegrowers Association President Wes Vine said there will be a lot to enjoy and experience from the event in 2016.
“We’re bringing the Strategem Bendigo Winemakers Festival to Rosalind Park in the heart of Bendigo.
“The venue change, from Castlemaine Botanical Gardens, is so patrons have the opportunity to soak up the ambience and history of Bendigo.
“Patrons looking to experience the Bendigo region can sample meticulously-crafted wines from local winemakers, delectable regional produce and outstanding musical entertainment in the historic garden setting of Rosalind Park,” said Mr Vine.
The Bendigo Weekly also reported that "Hosting such an iconic event in the very heart of this city, against the backdrop of the Victorian-era streetscape and in the magnificent gardens that double as a place of respite and relaxation, makes a strong statement about the importance of the local wine industry to Bendigo and its thriving economy".
