Photo: MATT LAWREY By MATT LAWREY Nelson s Heritage Week 2013 starts this Saturday at Fairfield House with a look at the history of the demon drink and a dance. The week kicks off with a sym- posium led by Nelson heritage buff and retired architect Christo- pher Vine entitled Vine on Vines. Starting at 2pm, it will look at the history of harvest time and the production of alcohol in the Nel- son region. Joining Christopher will be Eric Arnold from the Small Sips Club of winemakers and Scott William- son who will be bringing along some distillery equipment. Vine on Vines will also feature a barrel of grapes for people to trample in the traditional winemaking way for the making of a Heritage Week vintage. At 3.30pm the event will head in an artistic direction when members of Wellington s Footnote Dance Company and The Peta Spooner Academy of Dance will perform Vendage, a work choreo- graphed specifically for the slop- ing grass in front of Fairfield House. Vine on Vines will be free and drinks will be available to buy. In the evening Fairfield House hosts The Harvest Dance featur- ing live music from The Gypsy Pickers. Nelson beers, wines, ciders and non-alcoholic drinks will be on sale at the bar and autumnal food including pumpkin soup and apple pie will be on sale. Fairfield House manager Cath- erine Brosnahan said resident theatre group Body in Space would be providing some surprises throughout the night. Come and dance your heart out and enjoy the things that make Nelson such a joyous place to live, she said. The Harvest Dance goes from 7.30pm until late and tickets are $15 at the door.
