Description


Walk Up An Appetite


Join vigneron, fisherman and bushwalker David Ritchie for a four-hour guided gourmet walk in the Alpine National Park. About an hour’s drive from Mansfield, the 12km return hike starts at 8 Mile Flat and follows the Howqua River to Ritchie’s Hut, originally built as a fisherman’s hut for Bob Ritchie (David’s grandad) in the 1950s.


Hiking through the narrow river valley and ancient forests, steal glimpses of Mt Buller’s ski runs and be rewarded with a bird’s eye view of the pristine Howqua River - plus freshly made scones and billy tea! Back at 8 Mile Flat, cool your heels by the river over a barbecue lunch of local Howes Creek Farm sausages and gourmet salads, washed down with a glass or two of Delatite wine.


This hike requires a reasonable level of fitness and agility as there may be low river crossings on the track. In the event of wet weather, the event will be relocated to Delatite Wines for a behind-the-scenes wine experience with morning tea and lunch.


About Delatite Wines:

Located in the foothills of the Victorian Alps below Mt Buller, Delatite Wines is a small, family-run winery established in 1968. Visit their Cellar Door for a wine tasting with spectacular views, vintners and cheese platters, produce, preserves and cellar-door-only wines.

Owing to its cool-climate and sub-alpine location, Delatite has a European-influenced winemaking style and produces delicate white aromatics and elegant reds. Their winemaking approach has been forged over a 170-year history of working with the land, developing sustainable and biodynamic principles and a philosophy that allows the vineyard and grapes to express their true characters rather than the fingerprints of the winemaker.
