Yes, Fringe comes first, but hot on its heels will be the highly anticipated (food related events always are) Tasting Australia festival. Be it a collaboration among world-class chefs, an inimitable tasting of beer, wine or spirits, or an evening soaking up the charred flavours and aromas of Town Square, Tasting Australia is full of unique and moreish food and beverage experiences.
And here’s one experience that features everything we love about Tasting Australia. This long, “Sunday Roast”-style lunch on the lawns at Yalumba is what weekends were made for.
Hosted by Managing Director, Nick Waterman, this event will give you a little insight into Australia’s oldest family owned winery, with stories about the location and wines from Head of Winemaking, Louisa Rose, and sixth generation family member, Jessica Hill-Smith.
You’ll spend the afternoon at Yalumba in Angaston, a grand estate with 170 years of winemaking heritage behind it.
Your one responsibility will be relaxing at long tables set in the gardens of the Yalumba property, watching celebrated chef, Matt Moran, and Peter Clarke (Head Chef at Vintners Bar & Grill) as they cook beside Tasting Australia creative director, Simon Bryant.
Farm-fresh produce will feature on the lunch menu, with matched Yalumba wines to complete the picture. Now that’s the kind of lazy, long Sunday lunch we’re all about.
This gorgeous experience takes place on Sunday, 29 March from 12pm to 4pm as part of the Tasting Australia program (take a look at the full program here).
Tickets are $215 per person. For more information and to book your spot, head over here.
Yalumba is located at 40 Eden Valley Rd, Angaston 5353.
