Ten years strong in 2020, Cellar Door Fest is Adelaide’s premier celebration of South Australia’s vibrant food and drink scene.
Between Friday 7 and Sunday 9 February, more than 170 local wineries, breweries, distilleries and food producers will descend on the Adelaide Convention Centre at the heart of the City for three days of gourmet fun.
The event presents attendees with a fantastic opportunity to meet, taste and discover the best of SA, including iconic, established brands; boutique brands and emerging producers.
This year, the team at Cellar Door Fest have pitched in to support producers affected by the recent bushfire devastation in the Adelaide Hills and on Kangaroo Island.
As part of this support, they’ve introduced a ‘Bushfire Relief Market’ which provides a dedicated area for producers facing bushfire-related output shocks to sell their goods and attract customers both old and new.
You can find a list of producers participating in this special zone, here.
Additionally, Cellar Door Fest will be selling their signature wine glass holders for $10 each, with 100% of proceeds from their sale benefitting the Adelaide Hills Wine Region Fire Appeal and the Kangaroo Island Mayoral Relief and Recovery Bushfire Fund.
Plus, attending the Fest on Friday 7 February could put you in the running to win a bottle of highly sought after Penfolds Grange, which is one of a host of fabulous Silent Auction items up for grabs.
At retail price, a bottle of Grange can set wine enthusiasts back around $800.
All proceeds from the Silent Auction will also be donated to support the aforementioned bushfire appeals.
Cellar Door Fest tickets start from $29.72, with weekend and group passes available. Cellar Door Fest begins Friday 7 February at 5pm and runs through until 6pm on Sunday 9 February.
