Event:
Tasting wines to support small dog rescue
What better way to spend a winter afternoon than tasting wines in the attractive surrounds of the Adelaide Hills Wine Centre. The icing on the cake is that money raised from the event will go towards the support of small dogs which have been rescued by Moving Paws.

Moving Paws Inc is a not for profit registered charity dedicated to the protection and rescue of small breeds of dogs which are in need of a new home. They are a team of volunteers who specialize in caring for senior and special needs dogs, some of which are too old, sick or traumatized to be adopted out to new homes and remain in the loving care of Moving Paws for the rest of their lives.

In conjunction with the Adelaide Hills Wine Centre in Hahndorf, Moving Paws will be holding a fundraising, wine tasting afternoon on Saturday 13th August from 12 noon. Twelve local wineries will be participating by providing wines for the event. The entry cost is $5.00 and is refundable if wines are purchased. Donations of goods and money for Moving Paws will be accepted on the day and anyone who makes a donation will go in the draw to win a mixed dozen of the wines tasted on the day.

The Adelaide Hills Wine Centre is situated at 35 Main Street, Hahndorf, in the historic stables and smokehouse of the Hahndorf Inn. It showcases many of the premium boutique winemakers of the Adelaide Hills, some of which are considered to be South Australia's best-kept wine secrets.

Hahndorf is a charming small town in the Adelaide Hills and is a popular destination for tourists and local South Australians. It has a unique, 'village feel' and a main street lined with elm and plane trees, many of which are over 100 years old. Buildings, beautifully restored to their original condition also abound in the main street. Interesting and intriguing shops and businesses await exploration and include galleries, souvenir and gift shops, clothing, leather goods and craft outlets and a variety of eating places, including cafes, restaurants and two pubs offering authentic German fare.

Why not have a day out on the Saturday, 13 August? Travel up the freeway from Adelaide to Hahndorf in the morning, wander along the main street, enjoying the variety of attractions, grab an early bite to eat and finish up enjoying the wine tasting experience at the Adelaide Hills Wine Centre. Not only will you have a great day out, but you will also have the satisfaction of supporting a worthwhile charity.
