Spring is synonymous for sunshine, good food, good company and of course, wine. Emphasis on the wine. But for a lot of us, finding the time to travel to the picturesque McLaren Vale and the rolling hills of the Barossa for a wine tasting tour extravaganza is hard work.
Enter the perfect solution – ARTBAR, Adelaide’s newest gallery and wine bar combination, opening in November.
The new city ‘cellar door’ will be offering wine tastings from guest wineries from across our great state in a beautiful, redesigned art space from Thursday to Sunday. Each month, a new wine producer will feature at ARTBAR with only their wine offerings available for tasting. On top, the winery in the spotlight will hold a special event to celebrate their feature too.
If you consider yourself a bit of a wine connoisseur, you won’t want to miss the first winery to showcase at ARTBAR, which will be McLaren Vale’s Oliver’s Taranga, who have been around since 1841 (so we guarantee they know their stuff).
Oliver’s Taranga have recently collaborated with renowned artist, Emma Hack to create a bespoke label for their new Sparking Fiano, entitled The Hunt For Mrs Oliver. A bubbly made for a summer feast, the wine will be available at the ARTBAR for exclusive tasting, alongside brilliant artworks on show by Emma Hack and the SA Art Collective, comprising of108 Emma Hack Art Prize Finalists.
ARTBAR will be open Thursday through to Sunday from 12pm – 7pm, staying open till 9pm during launches and special events.
The official launch date of this oasis of colour and fine wine is expected to be the week beginning on the 6th of November, so stay tuned!
Special thanks goes out to Renew Adelaide and Hindmarsh.
