Just as those memorable words from the popular song BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE reflect our current winter weather as the temperature drops, things are heating up at Patritti Wines with their upcoming annual Winter Warmers Party. This popular event will be held on Friday, 24 June at 6.00 pm - 8.30 pm at Patritti Cellar Door, 13 - 23 Clacton Road, Dover Gardens.

The Winter Warmers Party includes: an evening of live music, food trucks and complimentary wine tastings. There will also be some fantastic cellar door specials available on the night.
Marketing Manager, Kyla Schmidt said, "Each summer and winter Patritti holds events to thank their Cellar Door Members for their patronage throughout the year. These exclusive events are popular amongst members with each event selling out within days of the ticket release."
She said,"To be included on the invitation list, you need to visit the cellar door in Dover Gardens or jump on the website HERE, make a purchase and sign up to become a member."
Kyla went onto say, "An additional member ticket can be purchased for your spouse or partner. You may also purchase up to two additional non-member tickets for your guests."
The range includes sparkling wines, award winning red and white table wines, fortified wines, de-alcoholised wines, and still and sparkling fruit juices, all at very reasonable prices.
For the hot tip, check out the Blewitt Springs Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz which was recently awarded 94 points by Australia's wine god, James Halliday. There's also Jimmy's Hat (a white blend of Sauvignon, Semillon and Vermentino) recently awarded 94 points by Tony Keys of The Key Report. This is currently 20% off when you purchase 6 bottles or more (usually $96 /6 pack, now $76.80 /6 pack, offer available for a limited time).
As much as this may sound like an old cliché, The Patritti Cellar Door is really one of Adelaide's secret gems, hidden away in a housing estate in Dover Gardens, only 2 minutes from Westfield Marion, and just ten minutes from Glenelg.

Planted to both Grenache and Shiraz, each year the fruit from this vineyard is used to make the Patritti Marion Limited Release Grenache Shiraz. Made in very limited quantities, customers can purchase a piece of Marion's history for just $24 per bottle.
