The Adelaide Hills Wine Region will once again bask in its midwinter glow this July as revellers ‘head to the Hills’ to enjoy a weekend of beautiful wine, food and fireside ambiance at the annual 2013 Winter Reds Festival.
Taking place on July 27 and 28, Cellar Doors throughout the region will give guests the chance to soak up the warmth by open fires and outdoor braziers in the seasonally beautiful surroundings, with a selection of Adelaide Hills Wine region locals showing off their culinary talent as the ‘Real Foodies of the Adelaide Hills’ by matching the region’s world renowned cool climate wines with hearty Fireside Fare.
“Winter in the Adelaide Hills is a wonderful time of the year to embrace our cool climate red wines and quality local produce and this year, the annual Winter Reds festival will be celebrating the Real Foodies of the Adelaide Hills as we indulge in some stunning winter warming dishes at cellar doors throughout the region,” says Adelaide Wine Region President, John Harvey.
Leading up to Winter Reds, food and wine lovers can look forward to the Real Foodies of the Adelaide Hills releasing a series of unique and delicious recipes to indulge in during the weekend’s events, which will no doubt warm the soul of visitors and perfectly complement the wines on offer.
Inga Lidums, from Lobethal Road Wines, is one of the Hills’ resident ‘Foodies’ and has explained how the weekend gives her a chance to not only share one of her favourite recipes, but also to show visitors the unique ambience that is the Adelaide Hills during the cooler months.
“The Adelaide Hills is certainly one of the state’s best kept winter secrets and always inspires delicious, hearty fare, which we are delighted to offer visitors during the upcoming Winter Reds Festival. I’m looking forward to sharing a personal recipe that has been a family favourite for years and will warm you from the inside out whilst matching perfectly with our red wines,” said Inga.
Along with homemade treats, guests are able to experience some exclusive events over the weekend; including the Winter Reds ChocoVino wine and chocolate matching at Hahndorf Hill, a cheese making and wine master class with Udder Delights and Scott Winemaking, or even the Hills Country Smokehouse at Longview Vineyard which will offer a tasty American BBQ experience.
