They also host regular events, including Wine & Vinyl on Wednesday nights (BYO record or enjoy some classic rock!) and Sundays with chef Jamie Laing, who creates a specially curated menu from 12pm. barrelstirling.com

Fringe in the Hills

You don’t have to drive down the hill to soak in the Fringe atmosphere – some of this year’s Fringe events are right in your backyard! Sinclair’s Gully Winery is hosting a number of events in its candlebark forest. Embark on a dusk musical journey with internationally acclaimed soprano harpist Siobhan Owen, get lost in some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classics surrounded by nature with soprano Nicolina Barcello and pianist Emma Knights or bring a picnic and enjoy the sounds of homegrown talent bringing you everything from folk and blues to modern favourites. adelaidefringe.com.au

All through May Adelaide Hills wineries host special events showcasing their Chardonnays. The full program is yet to be released, but if last year is anything to go by, you can expect tasting flights, picnics, food pairings and music. adelaidehillswine.com.au
