ACC Chief Executive Alec Gilbert said the 2014 Festival will offer visitors new experiences, ideas and inspiration.
“The blend of South Australian wine and food is the perfect combination and the Festival brings them together under one roof so visitors are able to discover and sample the best of the state – simply and easily.”
“Many visitors to the Festival are introduced to wineries and food producers they’ve never come across before and may not have discovered unless they visited the region of origin.
“The Festival differs from other wine and food events because it’s educational and gives people a greater understanding of the characteristics of each region and the varying styles of the local wineries and producers.”
In 2014, two new regions will be added to Festival – Adelaide Plains and Eyre Peninsula – taking the number of regions represented to fifteen.Thirty new wineries have also joined the Festival for 2014.
Thousands of wines will be offered for tasting at the Festival including many of the wineries new releases, which won’t yet be available for retail sale.
Each visitor is given a Riedel glass for unlimited tastings, a branded calico shopping bag and a passportthat includes notes about the regions and wine tasting tips to plan and record their Festival experience.
Wine buyers will be able to take advantage of the ‘Pick n Pack’ service where 6 or 12 bottles of wine purchased at the Festival can be packed and shipped to any destination in Australia for only $7.
