Winter Reds Weekend

Adelaide Hills

Adelaide Hills Wine

Shrug off your jacket. Shake your scarf free. Close the door against the icy wind. There's a log fire crackling and your face starts glowing. You pour a warming glass of red and take in the alluring aroma of a slowly cooked braise. Settle in to a cosy leather chair with a dog curled up at your feet... perfection!

Be tempted by more than 30 wineries offering sumptuous events day and night this July.

Fire up your winter soul in the Adelaide Hills.
