Ross Wilson hopes the Cool World tour will set a standard for sustainable touring into the future. ​

Food, wine and live music will feature at Heathcote’s Sanguine Estate next month when the winery hosts the Ross Wilson Cool World tour – which had to be postponed for a year due to extreme weather in 2022.

Originally planned for November last year, the tour’s visit to Heathcote was postponed after the threat of serious flooding and difficulties accessing waterlogged roads to Sanguine Estate prompted organisers to cancel.

The show is now planned for November 5 and will again feature three Australian bands – The Badloves, King Canyon and headliners Ross Wilson and The Peaceniks.

Sanguine Estate chief executive Jodi Marsh said the venue was pleased to be able to welcome live music to Heathcote.

“In November 2022, due to a dam wall threatening to burst and flood waters causing slippery and severe boggy conditions, we had no choice but to postpone the event,” she said.

“Looking ahead to the upcoming show, we’re thrilled to say, some of the resulting wines from the 2022 harvest will be available at the concert.”

New for this show will be Sanguine’s Helicopter Event Packages, providing visitors with the chance to fly to and from the venue by helicopter from Melbourne, with a first choice of seating, lunch and wines, a chance to meet the bands and receive complimentary merchandise.

This year’s show also coincides with the release of Ross Wilson’s latest album titled ‘She’s Stuck on Facebook All the Time’, launching in Melbourne on October 22.

Tickets kept from the 2022 show can be used again for the upcoming show, which will begin at 12pm on November 5 at Sanguine Estate, at 77 Shurans Lane.
