Grapest 5km run headed for Hunter Valley | The Singleton Argus

Enjoying a glass or two of wine might come with plenty of medical benefits, but it isn’t typically a pastime associated with exercise. At this new series of wine-tasting fun runs, however, you’ll put in the hard yards before you get your red and white rewards.

Grapest 5km run in the Hunter Valley

The Grapest 5km Run, a unique event to hit Australia, consists of two sections.First, you sprint, jog or walk through scenic vineyard surroundings for either five or 10 kilometres. Then you walk another kilometre, while stopping at wine-tasting stations along the way, sampling some of the best wines the country has to offer. There is also an after-party with live entertainment by ‘Hurricane Fall’.The run will be happening at the Hunter Valley’s Domaine de Binet, Adina Vineyard and Tatler Wines. Winemaker and Director of Domaine, Daniel Binet said they are very excited to be providing the venue for this unique event.

“The winetasting stations as you near the finish line are going to be the highlight for many we think, where participants will be able to enjoy our unique varietals,”

he said.

“It will be a great opportunity for us to de-mystify the world of wine in a fun and engaging way, and the entertainment and activities afterwards are going to make this a must do event for visitors and the local community.”
