Enjoy some museum wines in the heart of a museum

Fancy a night at the South Australian Museum, some fine older wines and some good tunes? 

Bottles of wine are being brought up from cellars and dusted off in preparation for the pop-up event RESERVED wine at the South Australian Museum on Friday, June 25.

No fewer than 15 South Australian wineries will be serving reserved, museum release, back-vintage, cellar-door-only and hard-to-find wines from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.

Listen to tunes from a local DJ while you sip wines from Bec Hardy Wines and Pertaringa, Bleasdale, Chateau Yaldara and 1847 Wines, Gatt Wines, Hentley Farm, Kirrihill, Karrawatta, Knappstein Wines, Levrier by Jo Irvine, Loom Wine, Schild Estate Wines, The Pawn Wine Co., Thistledown Wine Company, Woodstock Wines and Zonte's Footstep while enjoying exhibits in the Mammals and Pacific Cultures Galleries.

Chief executive of the South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) Brian Smedley says he is excited to be hosting pop-up wine events again.

“We’re thrilled to once again be able to bring a selection of South Australia’s best wineries from our regions to the CBD after a brief event hiatus due to COVID restrictions,” he said.

Bec Hardy will be pouring the 2016 Pertaringa Over the Top shiraz.

“This wine acknowledges the very best site, climate, vines and production techniques, hence its name,” she says. “The 2016 museum release showcases how amazingly well this McLaren Vale shiraz develops with a few years in the cellar.”

To accompany aged drops will be tasty bites served up by the team at the South Australian Museum. Food is included in the ticket price which is $20 + booking fee. This also gets you a Great Wine Capital wine glass to keep and two tasting tokens to be redeemed by any of the wineries.

Once your tasting tokens have been redeemed, wine will be available for purchase directly from the wineries by the half-glass, the glass, the bottle or to be packaged and taken home.

RESERVED is presented by the South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) and Adelaide a Great Wine Capital of the World, and celebrates 2021 the Year of South Australian Wine.
