Yesterday’s Picnic at Marble Hill was like the perfect date; it featured delicious drops, amazing food and many long haired men serenading us with their musical stylings. What more could you want?
Set in the picturesque Adelaide Hills at the historic Marble Hill Ruins, winemakers, brewers, masters of local produce, magical musicians and likeminded people came together to celebrate everything the Adelaide Hills has to offer, while raising awareness for deserving local charities.
Simply put, the Picnic at Marble Hill is all about the good vibes. Featuring wood oven baked artisan pizzas and paella, both of which sold out in record time, gorgeous cheese boards, sausage sizzle (because it’s not an Aussie summer feast without a snag), baked sweet treats and so much more, the picnic’s punters were well and truly satisfied on the food front.
Then of course, there was the wine…and cider! With so many fantastic local choices, deciding which drop to fill our glasses with was emotional to say the least. We don’t discriminate here, hence why we felt the need to have a little taste of everything.
After filling our bellies picnic style with our rugs spread out under Marble Hill’s natural canopy, it was time to dance. The tunes were raw, heartfelt and best of all, joyous. It’s that joy and passion for the region, and the wonderful charities it supports that stuck with us, as we sadly folded up our rug and made the scenic decent back into the CBD.
A truly wonderful event for people of all ages, the Picnic at Marble Hill must be on your calendar for 2016. Giving us the opportunity to sample the best of the Adelaide Hills, frolic in the sunshine and support the Cora Barclay Centre, Cherryville CFS and the Basket Range Primary School.
