Grapes of Mirth will also bring the Hunter Valley to Newcastle for the day, with six handpicked Hunter Valley wine producers popping up at The Station as part of the event. There will also be locally produced beer and cider, plenty of gourmet grub, and tunes from resident Grapes of Mirth DJ, DJ Pedro Moshman.
