A magical night in the Mortlock for A Taste of Wine History

A sell-out crowd of 220 people joined eight wineries for a magical night in the Mortlock Wing of the State Library to celebrate SA’s History Festival and taste history. On Friday, May 5, the Mortlock hummed with people enjoying the tastes and historical tales of some of our state’s oldest wineries, notable wine families and historic wine regions.
