After being forced to postpone due to South Australia’s week-long lockdown in July, Winter Reds is on this weekend and is set to be a big one. Everyone’s favourite winter wine festival will run from August 27 to 29 in the Adelaide Hills. The annual event sees wineries open up their cellar doors, light the fire pit, crack open their wines and embrace the winter. This year’s theme is “What’s Your Red?” with wineries creating their own special experiences that champion the best of their red wines. There will be tutored tastings, parties, lunches of seasonal produce paired with wines, and a host of other events, all packed into one weekend.
