Show Notes

Stephanie Rogers has been behind the scenes of Cullulleraine Music Festival over a few years helping with social media and marketing for the event, and this year has stepped into the role of music director (previously held by her father Christopher Rogers).  

The Cullulleraine Music Festival is an annual, not for profit, event held in a picturesque, Mallee, lakeside location approximately 50 km from Mildura.  

Since its inception in 2015, the festival has developed as a keystone music event in the North Western Victorian region, attracting over 1,000 festival goers. 

Typically, the event is run over 3 days and features local and interstate artists with a range of genres, from folk, indie to blues and roots.  

This year, the Cullulleraine Music Festival will be held on October 8th, with camping and festivities for campers over the whole weekend (the 7th, 8th & 9th). 

Although the lineup hasn’t been announced yet, the organisers are pleased to say that the performers they have on board will attract a diverse range of festival goers.

Anthony Murphy began winemaking at Mildara Blass. 

In 1988 Anthony and his brother Patrick established Trentham Estate Winery at their family’s property on the banks of the Murray River at Trentham Cliffs, NSW, near Mildura. 

Trentham Estate Winery is distinctive among Australia’s notable wineries. With its outstanding wines, excellent food and a stunning natural landscape, they reflect 100 years of grape growing traditions and experience on the part of its founders, the Murphy family. 

In 2006 Anthony and Pat were nominated for Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine’s prestigious Winemaker of the Year award. 

Another major highlight of Anthony’s career was receiving the Trophy for Best International Shiraz at the 2008 International Wine & Spirit Competition. 

Today the Estate is a well recognised establishment with an award-winning Cellar Door and Restaurant and continues to grow and produce highly commended wines. 

There’s a bit of history that goes back in Anthony’s family, where they found opportunity for their family in a new land opening in New South Wales, purchasing a property 15 km’s from Mildura at Trentham Cliffs, a settlement developed after World War 2.

The Murphy Vineyards are now 60 hectares under vines of various ages, and the winemaking facility is a state-of-the-art complex handling 5000 tons of premium fruit each vintage. 

Since the late 80’s, the Murphy’s have created a much-loved venue for locals and a not-to-be missed riverside destination for visitors. A consistency of quality and attention to detail has been rewarded with hundreds of wine show medals, trophies, and business awards over 30+ years.
