Following the Federal Government’s announcement regarding any non-essential organised public gatherings in the face of the COVID19 pandemic, the 2020 Coonawarra After Dark Weekend event was cancelled. Please check back later in the year for details on the 2021 event
The Food and Drink event is held in April at the height of the grape harvesting season. This season, also referred to as the vintage season, continues to attract visitors from all over the world. The yearly grape stomp makes for a fun and exciting way to enjoy your evening while interacting with other visitors.
Coonawarra After Dark Weekend 2021 Event Dates & Wineries, Penola
What is a trip to such an amazing winery without taking a wine tour? Visitors have the chance to sample how the winery functions as well as get a glimpse of the day-to-day operations of Coonawarra wineries. Interacting with the winemakers gives visitors an insight into what it takes to create a beautiful bottle of wine.
The up-close experience with the grape harvesters as they go about their activities also offer an enthralling way to enjoy the event in the outdoors. After the harvest, it is only fair that visitors get to sample the products that are the result of the winemaker’s hard work.
