WINTER is coming and with it, returns Gold Coast’s epicurean-style Winter Wine Festival at Sanctuary Cove from Saturday, July 28 to Sunday, July 29.
Food and wine lovers are invited to follow the indulgent Wine Trail through The Marine Village sampling a special selection of the latest release wines from Australia and around the world.
Returning for its third year and proudly presented by Sanctuary Cove, the annual festival is a true celebration of the finer things in life with wine masterclasses, food and wine matching events and food trucks along with wine appreciation events, fine dining and live music.
Wines from all over the world will be represented at the event with wineries from Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain, Chile, Argentina, USA along with Champagne houses from France.
From Australia, guests can sample wines from South Australian icons such as Henschke in the Eden Valley and D’arenberg in McLaren Vale, to smaller estates like Howard Vineyard in Adelaide Hills and Charles Melton in the Barossa Valley. Woodlands, Forester and Watershed will make their way from Margaret River to represent Western Australia. There will also be wineries from Victoria including Mandala Wines, Stonier and Dal Zotto.
Many renowned winemakers will make the journey to share the stories behind their wines including Stuart Blackwell from St Hallett Wines (Barossa Valley SA) who will be unveiling the Australian launch of new wine The Blockhead Shiraz, Richard Done (NSW) who will be representing Bimbadgen and Matt Wenk from Smidge Wines (Barossa Valley SA) who have been listed in Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 Wines of the World for an incredible ten consecutive years.
With a map in hand, the trail will allow guests to meander throughout The Marine Village, stopping in at its award-winning restaurants and fittingly-themed supplier pavilions to sample decadent drops along the way.
