Foodies, wine, craft beer and music lovers will surely rejoice in an upcoming winter luncheon at the Cow and Calf this weekend.

The Cows Long Winter Graze is on this Saturday, July 27 and will see local musicians take to the stage to entertain audiences, plus drink and vendors from across the central west coming along to share their products.

This is the first time that the Wellington hotel has hosted such an event and the idea first came about after Cow and Calf owner Kellie Gersbach went along to similar events across the region.

"My partner and I went to a few events like Mudgee Que Festival and we saw others online like wine tasting and thought let's try and do something like that for Wellington'," she explained.

Ms Gersbach hopes the upcoming event attracts anywhere between 80 to 100 people.

She said it was nice to see the event attracting a lot of social media attention.

"We want to try and do one every season. Just something different to have for people," Ms Gersbach said.

Orange brewers Pioneer Brewing will bring their range of craft beers down for the day as will Wellington's D'Aquino's Liquor coming along with some local central west wines.

Crowds will be entertained by the amazing voice of Wellington singer Millie Mills who will open the event.

Trundle duo Tom and Holly are set to play after.

"They're awesome and have a great range of songs that they sing," Ms Gersbach said.

Darryl Towney will finish off the evening's entertainment.

"The music range is something for everyone...," Ms Gersbach said.

It was important for the Cow and Calf Hotel owner to source entertainment and products from across the region as that is where a lot of their clientele is based.

"We do get some travellers and passer-through but most of our clients are form the local area and we need to boost our local area and help everyone," Ms Gersbach explained.

The thinking caps are now on as to what could be in store for the Cow and Calf come spring.

Tickets are just $50 and can be purchased through

As well as the entertainment, traditional pigs on a spit, there will be a grazing table and fire pit to keep visitors warm.

Ms Gersbach said she would love for people to purchase a ticket and come along for the day.
