Auckland set to get A Taste of South Australia
South Australia’s artisan producers, local gin, wine and craft brewers will be on show at a new Pop-Up at Mr Tom’s on Auckland’s Ponsonby Road from 7 – 9 September.
The ‘South Australian Pop Up Cellar Door’ will take Kiwis on a sensory trip around the state with gin distilled on Kangaroo Island, craft beer from McLaren Vale and wine produced in the Barossa Valley, along with a taste of the fantastic local produce on offer.
Open to the public from 3:30pm, Friday 7 September, the pop-up will offer a taste of the food and wine State in a truly South Australian Cellar Door setting until Sunday 9 September.
Those who head along on Friday afternoon from 3.30pm will be welcomed with an Epicurean feast of South Australian produce. With artisan cheeses from the Adelaide Hills, Maggie Beer pastes from the Barossa and dried fruits and nuts from the Fleurieu Peninsula. Complimentary cheeseboards will also be given away to anyone that buys a bottle of Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz over the course of the weekend (while stocks last).
Stacey Kerr, Regional Manager, South Australian Tourism Commission says the Pop-Up is set to give Kiwis an authentic taste of the State and for them to discover the many hidden gems in South Australia.
"South Australia is renowned for its boutique, artisan and handcrafted food and drink. We’re excited to be giving Kiwis the opportunity to sample everything from big-name wines right through to the up and coming secret treasures the State has to offer.
“From the iconic Jacob's Creek, to small-batch gin distilled with Juniper foraged from the wild coast of Kangaroo Island and everything in between” she says.
The South Australian Cellar Door coincides with MasterChef Australia’s ‘South Australia Week’, which aired on TVNZ One from 15 August.
Along with specials from Kangaroo Island's Wild Gin and McLaren Vale's Vale Ale, wines from the Barossa Valley's Jacob's Creek Cellar Door will be on offer throughout the weekend for purchase.
