Sword Fighters & Pizzini Winery Event

Sword Fighters Australia was proudly involved in a Victorian Winery event in the King Valley located in North Eastern Victoria on the King Valley Road, Whitfield, this weekend.

Pizzini Winery []  held their annual Food and Wine Festival on the 14th & 15th November.

Sword Fighters Australia ran numerous Fencing sessions for the children (and parents!), who attended the event in huge numbers.

It was a great weekend and the hot weather helped the social nature of the region fantastically, the food and entertainment was great and the cellar door tastings proved a huge success.
