We’re returning Saturday November 10th 2018!


Save this precious date lovelies as Handpicked is back for 2018 and it’s suuuper special this year as it’s our 5th birthday!!

Hidden amongst the vineyards and gum trees of Lake Breeze Wines, unplug and reconnect with yourself through barefoot dancing, picnics on the lawn, amazing wine, world class music, laidback vibes and a dash of surprise…a carefully curated journey of the senses, handpicked just for you!




What to Expect in 2018




We’re suckers for a VIP Experience and it appears you guys are too! So building upon this space from previous years, our VIP Space is getting a whole lot of attention this year. It’s moving to a whole new and ahhhmazing location (seriously, we’re planting new grass for you guys as we speak!), we’re crushing over all the amazing boho vibes and spaces out there so you can expect a touch of that and as always, we have our uncles onto building some unique pieces for you guys too! Watch this space! 





Although we’re not allowed to spill the beans just yet, our 2018 lineup will knock your socks off!! We can’t wait to let you know who we’ve been working sooo hard at securing for you all but for now…patience our lovelies. To make sure you hear the news first keep an eye on our social channels and sign up to our newsletter here





Yep, our much loved Cocktail Forest from 2017 will be back…new, improved and much bigger! Last year we opened up a new space within our Handpicked Venue and created our boutique cocktail bar nestled amongst some of our 100 year old gums and just a stones throw from a nearby creek. In this space you can expect a pretty place to sit your squad and a unique cocktail menu, craftfully designed using our favourite wines by Lake Breeze Wines.





Whether its a fresh flower crown, henna art or your next favourite vintage outfit, Handpicked knows shopping is life! Duh! So relive those almost lost days of fossicking through markets and finding hidden gems of locally sourced items, where you can meet the makers, hear their stories, touch, try and smell! If you’d like be a stallholder we’d love to hear from you – feel free to contact us here.





You can expect only the best drops while in our home town, the hidden wine region of Langhorne Creek and more importantly, at the home and base of our family winery ‘Lake Breeze Wines’. Our picks for the day? Start off with a refreshing Lake Breeze Moscato before settling in to our Rosé over lunch and then definitely make sure you finish the day off with our Signature Red…the Lake Breeze Bernoota: this shiraz/cabernet blend will hit you with choc mint, plums and a sweet yet soft spice. Basically meaning..time to settle in and kick back with amazing music! Also joining the party are our SA Produced Beer & Cider friends!




Once you walk through the Handpicked Festival gates we expect you to take in that deep breath of fresh, country air. Grandpa will have just mowed the expansive lawns for you so notes of freshly cut grass will be in the air, there’ll be kidlets giggling and running about, fairylights to evoke that sense of magic and perhaps even some secret notes or objects to find if you’re looking hard enough. Enjoy a day off and let your mind rest at Handpicked. 



Can’t wait until November 10th?


The home of Handpicked, Lake Breeze Wines is open 7 days a week! Why not jump in the car this weekend for a sticky beak at our grounds, enjoy a wine tasting and a gourmet lunch in our newly renovated restaurant? (You might even be able to steal a secret or two about this years Handpicked Festival from the staff!) See more info about Lake Breeze here




See you soon Handpickers!!
