Winter Reds and Gluhwein!


The Adelaide Hills is celebrating its Winter Reds festival on the weekend of 26 – 27 July. There’s over 40 events taking place over the weekend, and we’ll be at one of the best! This year we are pairing with the next door Lobethal Markets for “Play with Fire at Lobethal Markets”. There’s 2 other wine producers and the wonderful Lobo Cider people, as well as lots for all the family:

“Devour beasts cooked over scorching coals or pizza from a blazing wood oven as you become spellbound watching a blacksmith create a fiery red glow. Warm your hands around mulled wine and cider while being serenaded by local trio Crazy Jester. Conquer the temptations of Schoenthal Estate, Tilbrook Estate, Top Note and Lobo Cider and celebrate the victory of a sticky red semillon and warm apple crumble with Top Note.”

And for the kids we’ve organised a face painter and a magician!

Come and taste the latest releases of our Merlot 2013 and Shiraz 2013. Both cracking wines!

And of course our sought after Mulled Wine. This is known as Gluhwein in Germany and is a traditional spicy winter drink made from red wine, heated and spiced with cinnamon sticks, cloves, oranges and sugar. Traditionally it is sold at Christmas outdoor craft markets in Germany, or at home people warm it in a teapot with a little tea light. Theo from Holden Hill (SA) told me that in his old country it is served in half sized glass cups like the one in the picture, as it is essential to keep it warm. We’re on the hunt for ones like this but in the meantime you can enjoy it with us in latte glasses!
