Want to learn more about wine?

The South Australian Wine Industry Association will host 8 South Australian wineries on Friday 5 May at the Mortlock Wing of the State Library of South Australia, for A Taste of Wine History, a pop-up wine event, bringing together wine and history as a part of South Australia’s 2023 History Festival.

The event will run from 5pm – 8pm and will give event-goers the opportunity to talk directly to the wineries about the fascinating history behind their brand, their family, their vineyards, and their wine region. Prior to the event a free lecture titled ‘Wonderful World of Wine’ will be given by historian Carolyn Spooner from 4pm in the Hetzel Lecture Theatre.

Tickets will go on sale at the end of March, and are limited so we suggest you get in quickly and put the date in your diary. The $25 (+ booking fee) ticket price will include a food offering, a Great Wine Capital wine glass is yours to keep and two tasting tokens for the wineries in attendance are allocated to you to redeem. Once your tasting tokens have been exchanged, wine will be available for purchase directly from the wineries by the half-glass, glass, or bottle, or packaged and taken home.

A Taste of Wine History is presented by the South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) and Adelaide, South Australia – a Great Wine Capital of the World.
