Food and wine lovers are in­vited to rug up to revel in win­try de­lights and en­joy all things wine as Sanc­tu­ary Cove’s Marine Vil­lage is trans­formed into an en­chant­ing vine­yard-in­spired win­ter won­der­land in cel­e­bra­tion of the sea­son’s finest drops.

Re­turn­ing for its third year and proudly pre­sented by Sanc­tu­ary Cove, the an­nual Win­ter Wine fes­ti­val will see guests fol­low an in­dul­gent wine trail through­out the Marine Vil­lage to taste a se­lec­tion of full-bod­ied reds and crisp whites, while en­joy­ing the top cham­pagnes from across the globe, spe­cial wine ap­pre­ci­a­tion events, fine din­ing and live mu­sic.

Map in hand, the trail will al­low guests to me­an­der through­out the Vil­lage, stop­ping in at its award-win­ning restau­rants and fit­tingly-themed sup­plier pavil­ions to sam­ple deca­dent drops. Show­cas­ing la­bels from lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional re­gions, guests will be able to taste and buy from a wide range of wines on dis­play us­ing a coupon-based re­demp­tion sys­tem along the wine trail.

Head of mar­ket­ing and events at Mul­pha Sanc­tu­ary Cove, Jo­han Hasser says Win­ter Wine had evolved to be­come a per­ma­nent high­light of the des­ti­na­tion’s sea­sonal events cal­en­dar, ap­peal­ing to the tastes of many.

“Whether you are a wine lover or a som­me­lier, the fes­ti­val of­fers a charm­ing vine­yard-in­spired set­ting to es­cape the cooler weather and en­joy some of the best wines from all over the world with­out hav­ing to leave the coast,” Jo­han says.

“Guests can jour­ney through the Vil­lage sam­pling drops from the ex­ten­sive list of Aus­tralian and in­ter­na­tional wine­mak­ers on show, while en­joy­ing in­for­ma­tive and en­gag­ing wine-ap­pre­ci­a­tion events as well as live en­ter­tain­ment across the week­end.”

Jo­han says there are prom­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties from the wine in­dus­try trav­el­ling from all over Aus­tralia to at­tend Win­ter Wine. The fes­ti­val runs from 11am-6pm both days. En­try is free, how­ever, there are also tick­eted events in­clud­ing a wine din­ner on July 27 (with six wines matched to six dishes) at the In­tercon­ti­nen­tal Sanc­tu­ary Cove Resort – check out the full event pro­gram on­line.
