During Muir Murray's Wine Estate's three-evening outdoor-concert series, East Coast Music Association artists enchant audiences under the peaks of a 300-seat, moon-coloured marquee tent. Asia & NuGruv's eight electric musicians fill the tent with a funk-infused, upbeat sound. The five-piece rhythm section, along with horn players and a female vocalist, mingle harmonies and wrangle free-range notes of R & B, soul, and blues. On July 2, Dominican Republic–born DJ Junior coaxes shy records to craft Latin-inspired tunes, as Pino Y Dos Chicas pound out authentic Cuban dances, interactive routines, and Morse-code sonnets. Gospel choir United for Christ, led by expert director Shawn Downey, sates eardrum appetites with the same voices that have serenaded Her Majesty The Queen and the lieutenant governor. Surrounded by sound-wave-saturated evening air and music critics' carrier pigeons, guests can stroll on the winery's rolling green fields or wander onto decks overlooking scenic Cape Blomidon.
Muir Murray Estate Winery
Muir Murray Estate Winery owners Jonathan and Lesley Murray use the region’s shorter growing periods to produce a unique blend of grapes rarely found in other climates. Due to their stringent process for selecting the finest grapes, the harvesting season on their 20-acre vineyard yields only about 1.5 tonnes of grapes per acre, which is about 2.5 tonnes less than the industry average. This results in a wine list of refined aromas and signature flavours, and a mouthfeel more pleasurable than either side of a velcro shoe-strap.
