Peninsula Summer Music Festival
Glass at Port Phillip Estate
Pensinsula Summer Music Festival returns to Port Phillip Estate.
Thursday 5 January 2017
The landmark architecture and sweeping coastal views of Port Phillip Estate’s cellar door are the perfect setting in which to experience the mesmerising string quartets of minimalism pioneer Philip Glass.
Renowned for their inventive programming and engaging performance style, Sydney’s Acacia Quartet are regularly featured on ABC Classic FM and Fine Music 102.5 FM. They have earned two ARIA Award nominations for 'Best Classical Album' and been a finalist for an APRA-AMCOS Art Music Award for Excellence.
They will perform the Australian premiere of Glass’ String Quartet No.7, written for the Nederland Dans Theatre, alongside Glass’ String Quartet No. 2 “Company” and works by Gershwin and emerging Australian composer Nick Wales.
Treat yourself with a pre-show dinner in the dining room before taking your seat in the cellar door for this unforgettable evening.

A celebration of the most popular Mediterranean fruit, the tomato. We are raiding the kitchen garden, and our abundance of tomatoes will be integral to each dish. Join us for a perfect Sunday lunch, with views over the vineyard to the sea.
In the beautiful surrounds of Port Phillip Estate begin with an exploration in the glass of our Estate wines. Then settle in to enjoy lunch, overlooking the undulating vineyards, in the midst of vintage. Our kitchen garden will contribute the abundance of tomatoes integral to each dish.
