Rousing cabaret and fine contemporary wines come together in a dazzling presentation at this month’s Adelaide Cabaret Festival when wine partner Corryton Burge adds to the many scintillating stage shows with an alluring act of its own – an exclusive themed pop-up wine bar.
The crew behind the new family-owned wine brand, unveiled last July, is taking the joy of wine to the big smoke with the new pop-up bar to be unveiled at Adelaide Cabaret Festival opening night – Friday 11 June, and open every night of the festival from5pm to 11pm until Saturday, June 26.
“As part of our three-year partnership with the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, we hope to add a fun new element where the style and sophistication of cabaret lives on, before, during and after the performances – and on a nightly basis,” said Amelia Burge, who owns Corryton Burge with her winemaker brother Trent.
“After all, not much beats a night out, enjoying the crème de la crème of cabaret performing artists while savouring a pre- or post-show glass of some of our family’s finest contemporary red, white and sparkling wines in a setting oozing everything cabaret and even hinting at some of its decadent traits.
“And with our long-held philosophy that wine is a simple pleasure that brings families and friends together, there is bound to be a buzz around the place.
“Patrons, performers and the public will meet and mingle, and priceless memories will be made.”
Brother Trent Burge concurred, adding that the conveniently located pop-up wine bar in Adelaide Festival Centre’s Festival Theatre foyer, will provide theatregoers and the Adelaide public with the perfect spot to discover the range of Corryton Burge’s wines in a CBD location.
“We really want our pop-up wine bar to be a fun, warm, welcoming and inclusive place where people come together to enjoy our wine at an amazing nightspot, whether for Friday evening knock-offs or during weekend visits to the Cabaret Festival,” he said.
“We also feel our wines and the Adelaide Cabaret Festival pair perfectly. Just as these talented cabaret artists push the boundaries of creativity and strive for excellence, we too are driven by a desire to innovate and introduce fresh new elements to our wines. It’s a true honour and a privilege to be associated with this event.”
The initial three-year partnership with Corryton Burge continues the iconic winemaking family’s longstanding association with and support of the arts, both in Adelaide and across the country.
