Exclusive wines, tunes and a night at the South Australian Museum
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 25 June.
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 supplied by a local DJ while you sip wines from Bec Hardy Wines & Pertaringa, Bleasdale, Chateau Yaldara – 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 and soak up the amazing 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 and her team will be at RESERVED sharing their unique wines. A 6th generation member of one of Australia’s oldest wine families, Bec will be pouring wines from her Pertaringa and Bec Hardy brands. One of their museum release wines on pour will be the 2016 Pertaringa Over the Top Shiraz.
“This wine acknowledges the very best site, climate, vines and production techniques, hence its name,” Bec says. “The 2016 museum release showcases how amazingly well this McLaren Vale Shiraz develops with a few years in the cellar.”
To accompany these perfectly 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 at 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.
