This week it’s all about the Blend…
Cabernet doesn’t just taste great on its own, it is also the ideal blending variety. To showcase this our wineries are offering a range of tastings featuring Cabernet blends at their Cellar Doors.
Not only can you celebrate, educate and activate your senses with an array of bespoke tastings, you can also try your hand at creating your own Coonawarra blend – yes, that’s right! Try your hand at blending your own wine!
Aside from the blending activities, you can relax and enjoy a ‘Great Day Out’ at Leconfield Coonawarra or take part in a progressive lunch, hosted by the Redman, DiGiorgio and Zema Families. There’s sangria’s on offer at Balnaves of Coonawarra and a mouthwatering fireside Feast taking place at Parker Coonawarra and you’re invited to be the chef!
There are plenty of options to graze your day away with produce platters and picnic packs available at many cellar doors across the region. If long lunching is more your thing be sure to reserve your table at Ottelia or Hollick Estates ‘Upstairs’ Restaurant, Coonawarra’s premier restaurant overlooking the vines.
From cheese to chocolate, light bites to long lazy lunches, and even a Japanese inspired dinner – you won’t be left hungry this weekend.
And let’s not forget the star of the show – Cabernet! You’ll have the opportunity to discover why Coonawarra is regarded as one of the most premium Cabernet producing regions in the world. Taste, compare, savour and celebrate Coonawarra’s signature variety at cellar doors across the region.
Round up your mates, grab the kids and cruise into Coonawarra for a day in wine country, or treat yourself and make a weekend of it!
Note: To avoid disappointment, bookings to events and cellar doors are highly recommended. .
