A session for wine lovers
This year, Adelaide's beautiful State Library, in conjunction with the Workers' Educational Association of SA (WEA) and Tomich Wines, will once again be holding a wine tasting and a guided tour at the State Library. There will be two sessions to choose from, one on Saturday, 15 February and the other on Saturday 28 March at 10.30am. The duration of the session is 2 hours and the venue is at the Hetzel Lecture Theatre in the old Institute Building, corner of North Terrace and Kintore Avenue.
Hosted by WEA wine expert, David Crossman, there will be a one-hour wine tasting and then a guided tour of the historic Mortlock Chamber. Participants will see displays of some of the Library's oldest wine literature collections and artefacts. Other attractions include a hands-on close look at items from the Hardy Wine Library as well as other special items including the Japanese Manga comics on a wine theme, wine labels and menus, winemakers' tasting notes and rare books dating back to the 18th Century.
This course is for all who are passionate about all things to do with wine. The fee is $53 and enrolment can be made on WEA's secure website.
