Kungadgee, Victoria. A weekend in late November, 2014. 

 At Hugh and Christine Cleary’s vineyard, Whipbird, generations of the Cleary family are coming together from far and wide across Australia to celebrate the 160-year anniversary of the arrival of their ancestor Conor Cleary from Ireland. Hugh has been meticulously planning the event for months – a chance to bring the extended clan together and to showcase Whipbird, his latest acquisition. Some of these family members know each other; some don’t. 

As the wine flows, it promises to be an eventful couple of days. 

Comic, topical, playfully honest, sharply intelligent, and, above all, sympathetic, Robert Drewe’s exhilarating new novel tells a classic Australian family story as it has never been told before.
