A Day at the Goat saw guests flock to Goaty Hill Wines to soak up the sounds of local musicians and indulge in food and wine on Saturday.

Attendees also dug deep, giving back to needy Northern Tasmanians at the free event by generously donating to The Examiner’s Winter Relief Appeal. 

Goaty Hill Wines owner Natasha Nieuwhof said the people embraced the event as it was inclusive and open to all ages. 

“It’s just a great family day, and we’re working with lots of great food producers,” Mrs  Nieuwhof said.  

Casa Paella, Wattlebanks Catering, Cocobean Chocolate, and the Good Food Float were set up at the vineyard, ready to serve delicious dishes to guests.

Vibrant acoustics also entertained, with local musicians a key element of the event. 

“What we generally do is do a bit of a call out for local musicians who may be interested and available on the particular date,” Mrs Nieuwhof explained. 

A Day at the Goat is a biannual event, occurring on Easter Saturday and in November. It began more than five years ago.

The winery has had a long-standing association with the Winter Relief Appeal. 

“We like to support as close to home as possible,” Mrs Nieuwhof said.

“For us, the connection … means that we are helping people within our local community.”
