South Australia celebrates one of the jewels in its crown – wine – at the Cellar Door Festival annually. In 2015 the Cellar Door Festival will be held February 20-22 at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Meet winemakers, sample their best drops paired with fine foods and take home some vino to savour afterwards. All up, around 10,000 visitors are expected to flow through the doors at the Cellar Door Festival 2015.
Close to 200 South Australian food and wine producers will be exhibiting at the Cellar Door Festival 2015. At the festival, niche names will be cheek by jowl with globally renowned brands. From sliders to salads, platters to pizzas, baguettes to desserts, you’ll be spoiled for choice. In addition interactive tastings will allow you to sample top cheeses and wines. A whopping 15 wine regions will be on display at the Cellar Door Festival 2015 – wander through each at your leisure, learn about new varietals and trends in the wine world, and enjoy the complimentary tastings.
The Cellar Door Festival 2015 also has a jam packed schedule of events. Chefs and wine makers are holding various master classes. There are sessions where you can ‘meet the makers’. Meet, Make and Eat tickets are sold separately and do not include festival entry(but you will need a festival entry ticket to access the class). This involves heading to an exclusive behind the scenes kitchen to whip up dishes using local ingredients under the expert eye of a watchful Adelaide chef – which of course you can then devour afterwards once plated up.
Meanwhile, the Long Table Brunch and Lunch events are aimed at the most die hard wine and food lovers. Offered for Saturday lunch and Sunday Brunch, there are hour long time slots for a seat at these tables. It goes without saying that this entitles you to top notch food and wine, with experts to guide you through each course. As with other special events like Meet, Make and Eat, a Long Table ticket is sold separately. You must purchase it in addition to your main Cellar Door Festival 2015 pass.
