Coriole is well known for being involved in many of the wine festivals that travel throughout McLaren Vale. However, they are also distinguished for their classical arts events, and a favourite is coming this month.
The first of which, their popular People’s Messiah concert is happening on the 22nd and 23rd of December.
Coriole are gathering Adelaide’s most accomplished young soloists and an orchestra of professional Baroque players to perform in the The Barrel Room.
Conductor Alex Roose is returning to Adelaide after 10 years of working extensively in the UK and Orchestra leader Ben Dollman will be leading an experienced group of Baroque players. Many of which perform with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.
Soloists joining the fray include Soprana Katrina Mackenzie, Mezzo Charlotte Kelso, Tenor Kim Worley and Bass Lachlan Scott. There’s also a choir led by the Fleurieu Singers, however, with the Barrel Room’s excellent acoustics, the audience is welcome to join.
After the Saturday performance, guests have been welcomed to the Coriole gardens for a picnic.
The Coriole Farm Shop will be open until 8:30pm on Saturday and offers a range of Coriole, Woodside and Kris Lloyd Artisan cheeses. If you have last minute gifts for your foodie mates you need to grab, it’s probably the perfect opportunity. You can also BYO food.
Most importantly, there’ll be a range of Coriole Wines to purchase by the glass or bottle as well as soft drinks and local beers.
So before the hustle and bustle of Christmas day, head to Coriole for a beautiful evening of classical music and wine. Tickets are $35 and limited, so book in early here. Keep an eye out on their other arts events, Opera in the Vines and Shakespeare in the Vines, coming next year.
