LANGHORNE CREEK – Exercise, laughter, entertainment and wine tasting all in one fun-filled day, it doesn’t does get any better than that.

In a new series of wine-tasting fun runs called The Grapest 5K Run participants will put in the hard yards with 5km and 10km runs before they get their wine rewards.

Langhorne Creek’s Lake Breeze Wines will host a Grapest 5K run on November 18.

After running 5km or 10km, participants walk another kilometre, while stopping at wine-tasting stations along the way, sampling some of the best wines the country has to offer.

An after-party will feature with live music by country rock band Hurricane Fall. But, for those who just want to wander, sip and learn about wines, that's also an option.

Lake Breeze event manager Kate Cooper said being able to host the Grapest 5K Run at the family vineyard was exciting.

“It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase all the greatest aspects of Lake Breeze and Langhorne Creek,” Kate said.

“The only thing I'm nervous about is my grandpa (owner of Lake Breeze Ken Follett) outrunning the rest of us.”

Alexandrina Council mayor Keith Parkes welcomed the Grapest 5K Run to the Langhorne Creek region in 2017. “The Langhorne Creek wine region is regarded as one of the best kept secrets in Australian viticulture,” Mr Parkes said.
