A popular Adelaide Hills weekend celebrates cool reds


The Adelaide Hills Winter Reds wine festival will feature a new Fire + Feast theme in 2023.

To run from July 28-30, the festival will comprise events across the cool-climate region that is just a short drive from downtown Adelaide. 

There will be a total of 48 red wine-focused events happening over the three days, including 
lunches and dinners matched with Adelaide Hills red wines. 

Fireplaces and heaters will be in evidence just in case the temperatures dip too far. 

There will be Tour + Taste events for those who want to experience the Hill’s diversity by visiting a few wineries in one day. 

Think live music and DJs, fire pits, mulled wine, casual food, and wine tastings, of course. 

General admission is $15 and includes entry and a souvenir Riedel wine glass. 

Other premium events incur an extra charge. 

The events themed as Cosy Classes will be hosted by an expert and guests will be taken through curated wine tasting flights, discussing points of interest on each wine. Some classes will compare Adelaide Hills pinot noirs and syrah to their French counterparts. 

In addition, the Adelaide Hills Wine Region has partnered with RAA this year to offer special discounts to its 800,000 members. In particular, RAA members can get 20% discount on the bus loops which depart from Adelaide Franklin Street bus station and Mount Barker.

“Winter Reds is a fabulous example of what the Adelaide Hills wine region does so well," says Alex Trescowthick, president of Adelaide Hills Wine Region. 

"There’s an excellent diversity of red wines on show: pinot noir and shiraz/syrah of course, but also gamay, nebbiolo, mencia and cabernet sauvignon expressing our cool climate with elegance, purity and freshness."
