Discover a new side to Southport with the inaugural Southport Revealed with Hunter Uncorked event as part of the opening weekend celebrations of Tastes of Gold Coast 2007 from Saturday 18 to Sunday 19 August.
The fun-fuelled weekend for food and wine lovers will feature some of the world’s best wines from the Hunter Valley alongside award winning Gold Coast Hinterland wines. Southport Central’s newest retail food outlets will provide an array of delicious foods for two days of wining and dining.
Will Creedon, Promotions Sub Committee Chairman for the Hunter Valley Vineyard Association, said “this is a great opportunity to take the Hunter Valley’s food friendly wine styles to the Gold Coast. Queenslanders are great supporters of the Hunter Valley and it’s great to be able to bring a taste of the Hunter Valley to the Gold Coast’s stunning outdoors for a winning recipe of indulgence and fun.”
“This two day event allows great opportunity to showcase the Hunter’s wines, along with those from the Gold Coast, with fabulous foods on the magnificent Gold Coast,” Creedon said.
Entry to the event is free with wine tastings costing $8 per person and including a free souvenir wine glass, tasting vouchers and entry to a signature Hunter Uncorked Wine Masterclasses. Visitors can test their skills in wine barrel racing and grape stomping, or enjoy a game of gateball (the new croquet) and the chance to win gourmet packs. Free entertainment will also be featured.
Tastes of Gold Coast 2007 runs from 17 August to 2 September. The annual festival is an initiative of the Gold Coast City Council supported by Gold Coast Tourism.
