Once again, the Forrest GrapeRide will be offering you the chance to enjoy some corporate hospitality on race day.
If you are coming to the Forrest GrapeRide with your riding team, friends or colleagues then this is a great way to enjoy the day together with some added benefits.
Pitch up your hospitality tent in a great part of the grounds with views of all areas, pre order drinks and food for the day, set up a drinks tab for your guests and take advantage of some of Forrest Wine special offers.
A great way to enjoy the after race fun at the beautiful Forrest grounds.
