Great minds drink alike, and even greater minds visit Crush Festival 2021 with mates to sample some of SA’s best drops pouring in the Adelaide Hills.
Each year the festival celebrates regional wineries by curating a map of cellar doors to visit. This year’s lineup includes more than 30 wineries stretching from the Adelaide Hills suburb of Lenswood to Tea Tree Gulley’s Paracombe, with each venue touting their own food, music and art offerings.
General entry to Crush Festival is free, however, the purchase of a $10 Riedel wine class is required for any tastings. Certain wineries also require individual tickets to be purchased.
Standouts from this year’s bill include Saint & Scholar’s Heaven on Earth party, which promises festival food, deejays and live “percussion”, as well as a golf challenge with a $1,000 cash prize. White clothing and a ticket are mandatory for this Bridgewater get-together.
Oakbank winery Murdoch Hill is touting a zero-waste, sustainable lunch served up by SHARE chefs, as well as deejays and “special guests” who will tastefully soundtrack your experience while you sip and take in the views of the undulating landscape.
The Crush Festival organisers have arranged a number of bus tours for those looking for a curated tour experience without the hassle of getting behind the wheel. The schedule for Saturday’s bus journey starts at 10am and ends at 5:30pm, and visits three wineries. Click here for more information on curated bus trips.
