Rotary Taradale

Our speaker at Rotary last Thursday was the esteemed Peter Holley from the Mission Estate Winery.

Peter gave a great presentation on the history of the Mission, the current wine production and outlined the current progress with the plans for the residential sub-division across the top of the Mission hills.

2020 has been a great year for the Mission Concerts, with Michael Bublé and Elton John playing earlier in the year. Unfortunately the Rod Stewart Concert scheduled for November has been postponed until April 2022.
