TROUBADOUR TALES AT PYRAMIDS ROAD WINES

There is a candor to Francesca de Valence that is not for the feint-hearted. Her songs, a reflection of herself, gracefully balance the line between integrity and intrigue to challenge how one thinks and feels. There is also a softness to this Australian songstress as she opens up and shares with the world what makes her creatively tick.

Six years after the prestigious Los Angeles Music Awards named a relatively unknown Brisbane local Songwriter of the Year in 2008, the now well-established artist has a string of performing, songwriting and recording achievements that reflect her inspiring development as an independent artist. As a trained classical and jazz musician, Francesca’s musical influences are unconventional for a pop artist, ranging from Bach and The Beatles to Bacharach and Ben Folds. With three successful EP’s, numerous tours around Australia and internationally, supporting artists such as Belinda Carlisle and The Manhattan Transfer, playing sell-out shows at the Brisbane Festival and Hobart’s infamous MONA, and with a brand-spanking new Australian Songwriting Award in her hand, Francesca is clearly forging her own path as a distinguishing Australian artist.

"“If the gorgeous vocals and flawless technique don’t have you at hello, the very real candor of her songwriting and lyrics will” (Warp Magazine, TAS)

Feeling right at home on Australia's big festival stages, and touring with some of the countries most loved artists including Washington, Matt Corby, Lior and Angus & Julia Stone, Buckingham is equally at home in the
lounge rooms of fans, having embarked on five national House Concert Tours in the past two years. These beguilling and intimate tours have seen her play in close to 100 homes of fans, and become one of the first Australian artists to pioneer the House Concert touring model – already a growing phenomenon in the USA and Europe.

"Buckingham filled the stage with her presence alone" - Shout Out Music

Want to learn about wine, have the chance to win some prizes and have a lot of fun as well? Well, wine options is for you!

" Team event with the emphasis on FUN.
" Find 4 people interested in wine and think up the catchiest name and come in costume to match. Some examples of team names are Bob Merlot & the Winos, Punks on Plonk, The Big Spit, Hard Act to Swallow, Deft Palates, Noble Rotters, The Spitt-Hoons, No Screwpulls, Natural Born Swillers, Pinot Envy, etc.
" Teams are asked to answer 5 questions on 8 different wines. (4 white and 4 red)
" Choose the correct answer from the three options (A, B or C) provided for each question.
" Even if people are new to wine and they really don't know how to tell the difference between a Cabernet and a Shiraz (and none of us do either!), at least they have options to choose from.
" So Wine Options is a game for everyone to enjoy.

The wines we tasted

‘A Natural Instinct’ will showcase the work of an Australian artist involved in natural history field and studio work for the past 40 years. The works will include paintings in oils, watercolour and acrylics, illustrations, sculptures in a variety of mediums, photographic works of the artist at work (some historic in their content) and the subjects she has detailed. Some field equipment and writing samples may also form part of the exhibition.

Kathleen Davies has travelled Australia for decades capturing the essence of the natural world with pencil, paint & brush, pen, and camera. Kathleen has held several very successful and popular exhibitions in the past few years. Her work maintains a strong focus on the nature of Australia. Her obvious love of nature and connection to the first Australians embedded in her DNA serves as a continuous source of inspiration.

Saturday 27 September 2014 until Sunday 26 October 2014

Vintage activities

grape_picking_Pyramids_Road

Picking and crushing - customers are invited to join us each year to be involved in the vineyard and winemaking process. Vintage usually starts around mid March however timing is impossible to predict. We only pick when the grapes are ready so we cannot give you much advance notice. It's a great weekend, picking first up on Saturday, lunch provided in the cellar door, more picking and crushing on Sunday morning. You'll even get a free T-shirt to prove you were here! Some people (check out Sarah) even get to get into the fermenters!

Bottling - We usually bottle when we need the barrels however it is possible that bottling can occur anytime throughout the year. e involved in bottling your own bottle and add your own label. It's a lot of fun without the hard work.
