Max Allen Masterclass winner and now VIP tickets to win!

14/02/2011 | By

Well folks, as promised, I have summoned a reluctant young adult and requested their help in drawing the winner for this wonderful prize, kindly provided by the people at the Cellar Door Wine Festival. Just to refresh your memory as to the exact nature of the prize, some lucky commentator will receive (drumroll …) two General Admission tickets to the entire festival PLUS two tickets to a Max Allen Masterclass.  And, with some unenthusiastic muttering and eye-rolling, my lovely barrel-girl has pulled Trudy’s name out of the bowl!

Trudy, I will be sending you an email requesting your postal address so that I can get your prize into the post as soon as possible.

But wait – there’s even more!!

If you were paying attention in my first post about the festival you might remember the brief mention I made of the Regional Farmers Market corner which will be part of the festival.  This will be in the food court area of the festival and will have selections of the regional food available from  the areas displayed in the wine festival.  When you think it might be time to sit down and have a snack, you will be able to choose from a wonderful array of some of South Australia’s finest foods, including a range of tasting plates containing some of the instantly recognizable  “iconic” South Australian products.  I’ve seen the menu for the festival and can assure you all that no-one will be disappointed with the selection available.  With products from, among many other noted producers,  Maggie Beer, Beerenberg and Udder Delights– cheese lovers, meat lovers and those with a fondness for the odd chocolate or two are all catered for!

Just because they are all-round nice guys, the Cellar Door Wine Festival people have given me two more passes to the Festival to give away.  This time the prize is a pair of the very special  VIP tickets which are available.  These tickets are strictly limited to only 1,000 and, at only $45 each, they represent extraordinary value and will be among the first to be sold out.    Advantage SA, an organisation set up to promote South Australia and all of our advantages, has aligned their  Buy SA campaign with the Cellar Door Festival to showcase some of our very best products,manufacturers and growers.  With your purchase of a VIP ticket, you will receive a Goodie Bag containing a fabulous selection of $100 worth of  these local goodies,as well as your general admission, a free Riedel wine glass (valued at $20) and a voucher for a $5 glass of wine.

For a chance to win the double VIP pass all you need to do is to make a comment below and tell me what you are most looking forward to trying at the Cellar Door Festival. I will close this at 10.00 am on Monday 21 February, and email the winner for their address the same morning.  I will send the winning tickets by overnight delivery to ensure that they are received in plenty of time.  This will be a really great weekend and one I’m particularly looking forward to.  I’m dying to hear all about what you are most interested in at this exciting Festival, so please share – you may be very glad if you do!

And don’t forget, if you pre-purchase your tickets you are in with a chance to win Beryl the purple Smart Car!

    I’m looking forward to trying wines I’ve never had before, from producers like Coobara Wines, Protero Wines, Balthazar Barossa, Gipsie Jack Wines, and Ulithorne Wines. When I’m done with those, I’ll check out my old favourites to see what new tastes they have to offer!

    I think I’m looking forward to checking out a few more Adelaide Hills wineries. I’ve only been back in Adelaide less than 2 years after about 10 years away and when I left the AdHills region wasn’t as big/as well promoted as now so there’s loads of new wines to taste!

    It seems almost cruel to suggest ranking one area of the Cellar Door Festival over another – they all sound so tantalisingly promising.
    But alas, to gain a chance of attending the Festival with VIP entry, I will have to do the unthinkable and choose.
    The Regional Farmers’ Market corner certainly holds great appeal, particularly their tasting plates. I envisage myself starting here, my tasting plate complemented by a Riedel glass of crisp white SA wine, planning my time carefully to take full advantage of all the Festival has on offer. Planning is the key – I don’t want to miss a thing!

    I’m looking forward to the local wines. There are a lot of growers in the area and the surprising thing is the overall quality of their produce. You’ve got Claire and Barossa not far away and produce great wines. Plus, having the drop be local helps too. Tom Foolery Wines is a discovery I’ve made recently. You can tell their wines are young but the flavour in them already is impressive.
