  • Hi, having visited the coonawarra cup 2014′ I found your dates for my trip to oz to take in the vigneron cup on a web site only to find there was a lateish change of date having already booked my return flights to the uk I missed the race meeting which was dis appointing as I arrive for the snake gully cup, and like to finish with the coonawarra cup inthe marquee before my flight home, I stay with a group that regularly take in the cup. My next trip is planned to take in the coonawarra cup 2019 , I understand this is early but when a date is confirmed could you please forward me the date, as it’s a day not to be missed, yours hopefully not a too whinging Pom.

    • Hi Jan,

      The 14th of January date listed on our site was for the past race day in 2016. We have not updated our site as yet as the 2017 date is yet to be released by the racing club.

      Please check back with us and I will update the page as soon as the 2017 date has been released from the organisers. I have changed our listing to “TBA” so as to avoid any further confusion.

      Best Regards,
      Jess
