There's a pop-up wine and massage event on an island

Nic Dowse

You’ve heard about pairing wine and cheese but how about wine and massages? Cracka Wines is joining the 2017 Wine Island event in November and they’re bringing masseurs with them.

Guests at Cracka Wines Club House won’t have to lift a finger as they lounge on day beds and sip on Cracka’s selection of organic and biodynamic wines. If the words 'bed' and 'wine' didn’t win you over then how about the fact that the Club House will also be offering free massages. After a long, tiring day of organic wines and foot rubs you’ll also be able to relive part of the magic with a your very own grape vine cutting to take home and grow.

Cracka will be offering an earthy selection of wines that will show guests how different soil profiles can affect the flavours in the wine produced. It’ll be the company’s first year at Wine Island after launching their online website in 2010.

Wine Island is Australia’s largest wine festival and 2017 marks its third birthday this year. Located on Clark Island in Sydney Harbour, the three-day event allows guests to taste over 100 wines, sample the food from the island’s menu (curated by award-winning chef Warren Turnbull) and take part in wine masterclasses. Tickets cost from $99 and they're on sale now.
