LAUGHTER was the order of the day at Nashdale Lane Wines as 600 people arrived to watch Grapes of Mirth.
Comedians Fiona O'Loughlin, Sam Taunton, Danielle Walker, Heath Franklin and Harley Breen performed during the day, with Merrick Watts filling both host and comedic duties.
Mr Watts said after the success of last year's event, he wanted to bring it back.
"Last year was one of my favourite gigs from everything I did last year - you feel like you're in proper wine country and the crowd here's awesome," he said.
For Mr Taunton, who has been working as a roving reporter on The Project, Nashdale Lane Wines ended a week of wineries after touring the Mornington Peninsula.
"Live stuff's fun because it just happens but if you're doing stuff on telly, you have to do takes and plan stuff," he said.
"These winery gigs, I've done a few of them for Merrick, but I haven't done this one yet and everyone in the world of comedy says it's the one to do."
He said he thrived on conversational stand-up.
"I always lose in my comedy," he said with a laugh.
"It's about me being the idiot and not knowing how to get through life."
Nashdale Lane Wines owner Nick Segger said the crowd was a good size.
"It was a good balance - they all found a good position on the lawn, it was a really amazing atmosphere," he said.
Mr Segger said water bottles were offered for a gold coin donation and estimated with Nashdale Lanes' contribution, about $1000 would go to the Rural Fire Service's Towac brigade to help them through this fire season.
