If spending your Saturday afternoon sampling and discovering the most drinkable wines from South Australia sounds like your idea of summertime heaven, then we have found the event just for you. It’s called Hot 100 Wines and it is arguably the most perfect way to spend the day this February.
Hosted at The Unley, the Hot 100 sets out each year to find the top wines from South Australia. The event aims to celebrate South Australian wine and culture in connection with great food, local music and people.
During the year, the Hot 100 hosts wine tasting events around South Australia and internationally. This year, Booze Brothers have come on board as a partner, stocking most of the Hot 100 wines and many other South Australian products.
The team of judges, now headed up by Peter Dredge, are asked to evaluate each wine against categories of style and for their drinkability, including the featured categories of Sparkling, Light Aromatic Whites and Whites with Texture.
Head Judge Peter Dredge is an Adelaide boy and career winemaker. He graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2002 but started in the wine industry five years earlier. Holding this position of senior winemaker at Petaluma and former chief winemaker at Bay of Fires, Dredge currently owns and operates Dr Edge Winemaking and is a partner in Tasmania’s Meadowbank Wines and Project Brian Wines.
The hundred most drinkable wines are recognised in the Hot 100 Wines magazine, and the top 10 become the hot wines of the season, featuring throughout the year in wine tasting events, in restaurants and pubs and in Booze Brothers bottle shops.
Tickets to the event are $30 per person and include all wine tasting and light grazing plates. Tickets are limited and can be purchased online through the following link.
So if you’re looking for something to do on a sunny afternoon this February, then be sure to add this one to the diary.
