Some highlights include the special wine tastings, vineyard tours, lunches, brunches, dinners, live bands, and Sunday sessions throughout the month-long program. The region’s top talent in food, wine, and music all come together to provide visitors with a world-class experience for the senses. It’s also been known for some of its iconic activities including the Retrospective Wine Tasting and the Masterclass.

The Retrospective Wine Tasting is an excellent opportunity to discover local wines that are ten years or older, and compare them with recent releases, as you learn about how wines develop their taste over several years. With over 40 wines to sample, the Retrospective Wine Tasting is a fun and educational event for anyone who appreciates good wine.

On the other hand, the Masterclass is another anticipated event that offers intimate and professional tasting experiences which are hosted by no less than Coonawarra’s most esteemed winemakers.

The Coonawarra Cabernet Sessions is held in various locations throughout town, so be sure to check out the updated schedule of events.

Responsible drinking is encouraged; for your safety, it’s best to plan designated drivers ahead of time. A shuttle bus service will be provided during the weekends from 10:30am to 4:30pm. Tickets cost $20 per person, which is inclusive of unlimited travel for an entire day.

Visitors coming from out of town should consider booking accommodation nearby.
