Australia’s biggest Cellar Door will be created when more than 150 South Australian wineries come together under one roof at the 2013 Cellar Door Wine Festival in Adelaide on February 22 to 24 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
In its third year, the 2013 Festival has attracted 30 new wineries to the annual event, which will feature thousands of wines from 13 iconic South Australian regions, including three from Kangaroo Island – Sunset Winery, Kangaroo Island Estate Wines and The Islander Estate.
The Festival kicks off with Industry Harvest, a trade-only event on February 22, before opening to the public at 5pm until 9pm. During the weekend it will be open from 11am to 6pm each day.
It aims to provide educational information about the characteristics of each region and the varying winemaking styles of local wineries through a ‘Meet the Makers Demo’.
Each festival visitor is given a Riedel glass from unlimited tastings, a passport that includes notes about the regions and wine tasting tips to plan and record their Festival experience.
The new Food Producers’ area will feature emerging foodies showcasing their products, and will include stall holders from the Kangaroo Island Farmers’ Market.
A series of Master Classes will also be offered. For more information visit www.cellardoorwinefestival.com.au
