Natural wines get their day in the sun

Enjoy "natural" wines? 

Fancy a trip to the Byron Bay hinterland? 

The Luna Wine Store’s Full Moon Wine Festival returns in Eltham, just a short drive from Byron Bay. 

Mark Saturday, May 6, in your diary for an event to be hosted by sommeliers Russ Berry (Luna Wine Store), James Audas and Tom Sheer (Luna Wine Store, Bar Heather, Lo-fi Wines) at the funky Eltham Hotel.

‘Full Moon is our fun way of bringing the community together to enjoy the company of some of the country’s most exciting producers," says Berry. 

"We want to create an environment where people can engage, learn and ask questions, as well as tasting a few wines, and having a dance." 

The Full Moon Wine Festival proclaims it is "about truth, authenticity and frank wine talking", but also "showcasing really good wine and building the community".

Tickets cost $75 for a three-hour tasting session from 2-5pm. 

The event will feature 30 "natural" winemakers under the auspices of  Luna Wine Store, Byron Bay’s only natural wine store, which focuses entirely on independent organic, biodynamic and natural wine producers.

Winemakers will be visiting from Tasmania, Margaret River, the Adelaide Hills, Gippsland, Barossa and Mount Gambier. 

Once the tasting ends, guests can continue partying until late with Luna’s ‘Baller Bar’ serving some rare wines from around the world by the glass.

There will be live music and DJ’s playing into the night, and food from the Eltham Hotel and  Ciao, Mate by chef Matt Stone. 

There will also be buses from Byron Bay and Bangalow. 

Location: Eltham Hotel. 441 Eltham Road Eltham, NSW 2480.
