Hidden amongst the vineyards and gum trees of Lake Breeze Wines, Handpicked Festival is a sensory overload full of barefoot dancing, slow living vibes and authentic experiences.
Spend your day stretched out on a picnic blanket over lush lawns, sip on local, family produced Lake Breeze Wines, meander through the lane of lights for handmade goods by a myriad of local artisans and enjoy delicious, regional produced filled dishes from an array of local food trucks. All this while enjoying the excitement that comes from hearing the familiar tunes from Australia’s top musicians just meters away…that’s Handpicked.
WHAT TO EXPECT
So much more than a music festival…
WHO WE ARE
It’s a Family Affair
The home of Handpicked, Lake Breeze Wines is also our home! We’re winemakers first, festival organisers second!
We’re the Follett Family, owners of Lake Breeze Wines and the creators of the Handpicked Festival! We have been growing grapes in Langhorne Creek for over 130 years and organising festivals for over 5 years!
Handpicked is run each year by two of the eldest grandchildren, Lauren & Kate with plently of input from the entire family from Nanny & Grandpa all the way down to our littlest family members of 14 years…it really is a family affair!
This is us here! The crazy bunch who decided to put a festival on in their backyard! (and this isn’t actually all of us!)
