Yalumba will be showcased at a number of Tasting Australia events over the ten days, including the Town Square which is open every day during the festival in Victoria Square.

One of the many standout events of the festival is Due Volte at Yalumba. This dinner will be held in the winery’s space, Tanks 11 & 12 where two of Sydneyy-based Italian chefs, Alessandro Pavoni (Ormeggio at The Spit, Via Alta) and Giovanni Pilu (Pilu at Freshwater), will treat guests.

Yalumba Managing Director Nick Waterman is elated to be paired with the event. “All over the world, wine, food and tourism are becoming inextricably linked. We saw the opportunity to be involved as the selected wine partner of this world class event, alongside local and international chefs and showcasing the best of SA tourism, to be a perfect fit for the Yalumba brand and a great opportunity to showcase our new collection.”

The festival expects to exceed the 60,000 visitors in 2018 to the Town Square, Masterclasses and specialty dinners during the 2019 festival. Yalumba sees this as a great opportunity to showcase a new collection of wines to highly engaged food and wine enthusiasts. This new collection of wines will be released globally March 2019.

“The team at Tourism SA has built an amazing festival over ten days and we are delighted to be a part of it; it’s going to be fun,” Waterman said.
