Are you feeling the chill of winter, this weekend in particular? Sitting at home and scrolling your Insta feed, with Triple J blaring the tunes of Splendour in the background?
... Well this fine Adelaide weekend is not the time to let that winter depression take advantage of you. This Saturday and Sunday of July is the fifth annual Winter Reds Weekend in the Adelaide Hills Wine Region. So, grab your winter boots and coat and be enticed by the gentle waft of lamb on the spit, slow cooked Coq au Vin and smoky BBQ matched to the most delicious wines of the beautiful Adelaide Hills.
This weekend there are 30 different venues for Gumeracha to Maccelsfield, which will provide you with culinary delights and soul music all through the weekend.
Baristers Block will have the spit roast crackling all weekend; Howard Vineyard is staging a Fireside Asian Banquet; and Nigeringa will again host the Feral Feast, focusing on unthinkable delicacies to pair with their famous biodynamic wines.
Longview will celebrate their position in the ‘deep south’ of the Hills serving smoky BBQ and soul music; Adelaide Hills stalwart Petaluma will officially open its new cellar door in Woodside; and Sam Scott and local Italian wine expert David Ridge will host an alternative varietals masterclass.
Adelaide Hills Wine Region CEO, Robin Shaw, said the 2015 even is set to offer one of the most 'mouth watering menus' she's seen in some time.
“The food on offer to match our world famous wines is really exciting,” she said. “We have assembled a stellar cast of local Hills chefs complemented by their city colleagues, who will be ‘Playing with Fire’ to boil, braise and barbecue their way through our fresh local produce all weekend.”
This is a beauty of a weekend in our beautiful Adelaide Hills. A weekend not to be missed!
