A Coonawarra date for the diary

Coonawarra is a wine region well worth a trek; whether you drive from Adelaide or Melbourne or fly into Mount Gambier.

Pop the dates of April 7-8 into your diary for the next of Coonawarra's many food and wine festivals: Coonawarra After Dark, which celebrates the 2017 vintage.

The program of Friday night events includes a vintage stomp at DiGiorgio Family Wines with fresh produce platters; vintage celebrations and Mrs Zema's legendary pizzas and live music on the verandah at Zema Estate; and a winedUp party at Brands Laira with entertainment and fish and chips.

On Saturday, visitors can enjoy wines in the raw at Katnook Estate (a tasting of newly picked juice accompanied by a cheese platter) followed by Chris Raidis' charcoal grill (Greek-style food hopefully with some goat) at Raidis Estate.

Throw in a visit to Wynn's Coonawarra Estate and you have a perfect gourmet getaway.

A shuttle bus will circle between venues on the Friday night for a $10 fee.
