Close the Adelaide Fringe with Barossa style
Adelaide Fringe is upon us again and following the success of Barossa Fringe at Turkey Flat in 2014, they are opening up the gates to do it again. The 2015 Turkey Flat Secret Garden Party will serenade you with divine sounds, tickle your tastebuds with gourmet delights and while away the afternoon with a glass in hand amongst some of Barossa's oldest vines on Sunday, March 15.
Bringing the Adelaide Fringe festivities to a close, cast out the picnic rug and settle in. Turkey Flat invite you to 'an afternoon nestled amongst the vines of our Bethany vineyard graced with the beautiful melodies of Holly Throsby, Kaurna Cronin and Echo & the Empress. The tunes will flow across the grass and dance amongst the leaves as the talented line up get your toes tapping with harmonies that soak up the surroundings and savour the flavours.
Delicious picnic fare will be produced by Barossa's Tracy Collins of Masterchef fame, recently busy with new Barossa venture, Harvest Kitchen, and a 'Spanish Conquest' at Artisans of Barossa just down the road. A new kitchen space adjoining the historic Turkey Flat cellar door will provide a base camp for one of Australia's favourite chef's to work her magic.
Turkey Flat vineyards date back to the region and county's oldest vines, and continue to produce outstanding wines. Of the benchmark Shiraz, James Halliday recently said 'If there is one word to describe the wine it is integrity. While great care is taken in choosing the parcels to accompany the cornerstone of the fruit from the 1847 plantings, it has always been made with light hands in a classic medium-bodied style, growing old with grace'.
As for the Turkey Flat venue, entering through the long driveway you can't help but be drawn into the beauty of perfectly symmetrical rows of vines on one side and the cheeky bush vines on the other. As you curl around the bend, the historic cellar door peeks out from behind the quinces tree and farmyard gate to welcome you. Time to exhale. Relax. Get nestled in amongst the vines, play a giant board game on the grass and introduce yourself to your picnic neighbours.
