East End Cellars

One glass at a time.

A gastronomic festival without wine wouldn’t be much of a festival at all - and a gastronomic festival in South Australia without wine would be a concept so bizarre as to be inconceivable.

South Australia has always been the flagstone of the Australian wine industry and the fact Adelaide is blessed like no other on earth with the diversity of vineyard riches at its edges has seen it recently elevated alongside places like Bordeaux and Porto as one of the Great Wine Capitals of the World.

The programme of wine events at Tasting Australia were curated specifically to encourage exploration, to broaden horizons at the same time as drilling down into details and to show that few cities on earth can so evocatively illustrate the idea that all good wine comes with a strong sense of place.

Whether it’s simply chewing the fat with a winemaker pouring something new or sitting in on a tutored tasting of Penfolds St Henri, there was something in this programme for anyone who loves wine.

Throw in sessions on great Riesling, a day dedicated to Grange, free ‘Meet your Maker’ tastings every day, a bunch of bars and a bottle shop devised by the brilliant team behind East End Cellars and The Tasting Room and you’ll see why no other event does drinks quite like Tasting Australia.
