Newstead is available as a venue for events. And we also enjoy holding a few of our own. Contact us to find out more about our Harvest Blessings around March, Bubbly Festival in October, new wine launches in November, Secret Solstice parties in December and polo matches close to new year.
Secret Solstice 2013
21 12 13 was another balmy evening and a perfect one to launch our 2012 MCC Brut. We met in the vineyards for some of the bubbly, then at sunset we walked through solar jar lit vineyards to the tasting room and lawns for a feast and music. When prearranged taxis arrived to take our guests home, none of them wanted to leave!

Secret Solstice 2012
We celebrated the end of a long year at the end of its longest day. Newstead’s Secret Solstice will be remembered for the oysters, the sushi, the wines (of course), and the warmth of special friends on a balmy evening.
Launch of our 2012 Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc
We came, we tasted, we laughed. These were our first wines: the result of lots of hard work, and also just a beginning for Newstead wines. We wanted to celebrate and share them with our friends and neighbours.
Blessing of the Harvest 2012
Our close friends joined us to acknowledge and give thanks for the harvest. We had families gathered together and kids running around. We had fun, abundance and gratitude. Most of all, we had our first grapes.
