Head for the Hills for a winter red wine celebration

Calling all red wine lovers. 

The Adelaide Hills Wine Region has released details of this year’s Winter Reds wine festival to be held on the last weekend of July, from Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28.

It is expected that thousands of winter revellers will flock to the Adelaide Hills - just a 10-minute drive from Adelaide - to enjoy a program of events celebrating the region's medium-bodied red wines

Think live music and DJs with a relaxed party atmosphere, along with some hearty winter food offerings. 

“Here in the Adelaide Hills, we don’t just tolerate winter, we embrace it,” says Alex Trescowthick, president of the Adelaide Hills Wine Region.

“We are blessed with a cool climate which allows the creation of beautiful, elegant red wines. Adelaide Hills is the only wine region in South Australia where top-quality pinot noir can be grown, and syrah from Adelaide Hills is highly regarded by wine connoisseurs. 

"We are also at the forefront of varieties such as gamay, nebbiolo, tempranillo and cabernet franc.

"You can explore our reds any time of the year, but it is a lot more fun to gather with like-minded friendly folks around a cosy fire at the Winter Reds festival.

“Being the middle of winter, essential clothing for attending Winter Reds is a big warm coat and comfortable boots, which is where the partnership with SA boot maker Rossi is perfect.” 

Event sponsor Rossi Boots is a South Australian boot manufacturer founded in 1910 by Arthur Rossiter. Rossi. 

There are over 30 participating venues with many tickets costing as little as $20 per person.

Possession of a branded Adelaide Hills Wine Region glass is essential for entry and is included in the $20 general admission ticket price.
