This weekend hails back to what once was the single festival weekend of Cabernet Celebrations…
Celebrate, educate and activate your senses with an array of wine experiences and events featuring Coonawarra’s champion variety- Cabernet Sauvignon.
There is every opportunity to taste some exquisite Coonawarra Cabernets in various events across the weekend. The region’s producers and winemakers will come together at an exclusive “meet the maker” tasting event showcasing 10-year-old Coonawarra cabernets alongside current releases – Friday 13th October.
Coonawarra’s esteemed Cabernet Masterclass returns this weekend, so if you consider yourself a wine connoisseur or want to expand on your global wine knowledge don’t miss this Masterclass at Parker Coonawarra Estate.
Immerse yourself in food and wine over the weekend with a sparkling cabernet breakfast and a range of lunch and dinner options on offer, including the return of Majella’s ever popular Paella Fiesta, Brand’s Laira’s Burgers and Beats, and the first ever Big Fat Greek party at Raidis Estate. The highly sought after combined wineries degustation dinner at Pipers of Penola is a highlight for those that seek an intimate culinary experience hosted by 5 Coonawarra winemakers.
