Crush LogoThe Adelaide Hills Wine Region invites Adelaide’s wine lovers to celebrate with them at their “Crush… The Stylish Alternative” Wine and Food Festival on Sunday 29 January. This annual event, which celebrates its ninth anniversary in 2012, lines up the region’s signature wine styles with local food, art, music and fashion at over 40 cellar doors.

Here’s a taste of what’s on offer at three of the venues:

At Hahndorf Hill Winery go glam with a make-up make-over and a photo session with cutting-edge photographer Andy Rasheed, accompanied by music by duo Urban Jo.

Longview Vineyard is presenting its Krush Klinic again! Four of Australia’s most exciting street artists create massive aerosol art to a DJ backtrack with the best art destined for the label of Longview’s ‘The Piece’ Shiraz.

At Barristers Block Crush Country Fair enjoy pancakes, strawberries and cream with a glass of Poetic Justice Sparkling Blush 9.30 – 11.30am, or come for lunch from noon. You can even view Woodside from the air with helicopter rides leaving from the vineyard.

Adelaide Hills Vineyards“As a region we are excited to be working with such a wonderful range of artists, fashionistas and musicians”, said Adelaide Hills Wine Region President Darren Golding, from Golding Wines. “We invite wine and food enthusiasts as well as lovers of music, fashion and art to enjoy the incredible range of talent we will have on display at cellar doors. These edgy affiliations match perfectly to the stylish wine and food.”
