Umbrella Winter City Sounds has been a mainstay of the local winter music scene for four years, but this year the National Wine Centre is joining in. The NWC is proud to unveil their inaugural music festival, Sip & Sounds Winter Festival.
Picture this: an cellar door in the heart of the city (interesting), the finest acoustic musicians Adelaide has to offer (keep talking), complimented by a program of wine tastings, food, and stalls by craft breweries and distilleries (sign me up!)
Adrian Emeny, General Manager of the NWC, is very excited for the centre’s first foray into live music in this form, and in particular to support these local up-and-coming musicians, as well as all the excellent wine and spirits that are produced in our State.
Emeny says, “As a venue, it’s very important to be able to offer people new experiences, especially during the winter months. We want people to get out and about and celebrate everything our wonderful State has to offer”.
That you can do at Sip & Sounds! The line up is back to back smooth sounds, headlined by Laura Hill, marking the release of her upcoming album Secrets, and supported with the likes of Ollie English, offering a soulful blend of sounds that liken him to Bon Iver, Tara Carragher, a popular blues and folk artist, and Brian Ruiz, a regular around the place who has rubbed shoulders on stage with the Big Man himself, Paul Kelly.
I can’t imagine a better way to spend a winter’s day than drinking wine and chilling out. Get your tickets via wineaustralia.com.au. They’re going for $50 per person, or $45 per person if you have a group of 10 pals or more.

TIME: 11am - 5pm
