The Vale Cru Keeping It Real with their Annual Tasting

Wine lovers are invited to sample more than 50 premium wines from 15 different producers at The Victory Hotel in Sellicks Beach on Sunday, October 19 2014.

The wines, including many ‘alternative’ varieties, are all made by members of Vale Cru – a collective of McLaren Vale winemakers who produce limited quantities of handcrafted wines, many made with minimal intervention and focussed on varietal integrity.Vale Cru Annual Tasting

The event will also feature live music from Courtney Robb, guest speakers, cocktail food and will be attended by special guest James Halliday.

Current Vale Cru chairman Andrew Wood, who is also winemaker and owner of Waywood Wines, said the annual event has become a tradition among the group’s loyal following but it’s also a unique opportunity to introduce new brands to consumers.

Among the producers participating will be;

  • Samuel’s Gorge
  • Ulithorne
  • Ministry of Clouds
  • Bekkers
  • Vigna Bottin
  • Rusty Mutt
  • Brash Higgins
  • Waywood Wines
  • Lazy Ballerina

Pre-purchased tickets $40, includes entry, souvenir wineglass and poster, cocktail food and entertainment (tickets $50 on the day). VIP day trip packages also available – see Vale Cru for details. Be quick as it usually sells out fast.
