With more than 25 year's worth of annual celebrations, the McLaren Vale Adelaide MINI Garage Sea & Vines Festival returns this June long weekend with 45 gourmet food and wine events across three days.

The 2018 event program includes brand new events as well as some returning favourites, including a tribute music festival, western themed hoedown, food trucks, long table degustations, a dog-friendly wine tasting and a day dedicated entirely to family fun. The diversity of event offering is unparalleled.

In 2018 Woodstock will celebrate two significant anniversaries - an incredible 45 years of winery operations and 30 years of the Coterie Restaurant.

Woodstock Communications Manager, Amber Kemp is looking forward to welcoming attendees to the aptly named 'Woodstock Tribute Music Festival' event.

"Woodstock has participated in the Sea & Vines Festival since its inception more than 25 year's ago. It’s an important annual event for us and for the region, so we are celebrating our anniversaries over the June long weekend with two days of peace, wine and music," said Mrs Kemp.

"Attendees will enjoy a celebration of the music from the most famous music festival of all time including Janice Joplin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young & Creedence Clearwater Revival, as well as tasty food options and of course, great wine."

McLaren Vale Grape Wine & Tourism Association General Manager, Jennifer Lynch is eager to showcase the very best of McLaren Vale’s producers and the unique offering visitors can experience in the region year-round.

"The 1969 Woodstock Festival attracted more than 400,000 Festival revelers - whilst we don't anticipate an audience of that size, we welcomed more than twenty thousand in 2017 and are looking forward to delivering another successful Festival weekend showcasing the best of our region's wine-tourism hospitality," said Ms Lynch.

Official McLaren Vale Adelaide MINI Garage Sea & Vines Festival events are hosted across the wine region, with three event types: Relish, Sunday Experience and Monday Family.

Saturday Relish

Celebrate the combination of our world-class wines and incredible regional produce! These unique, ticketed events are carefully designed to offer flavour, feasting and immersive sensory experiences. You may find yourself at a master class, cheese and wine matching, a long lazy lunch with acoustic music or an intimate degustation with winemakers.

Sunday Experience

If variety is the spice of your life, then the Sunday Experience is for you! A great way to experience three unique events across three sessions throughout the day – and you guessed it – at three different winery destinations. This ticket enables you to select three unique experiences from the participating Sunday Experience producers.

Monday Family

Monday is all about quality family time with food options, beverages and entertainment suitable for big kids and little kids alike. No pre-purchase of tickets is required with free entry at participating venues. Peruse the event line up, get the kids in the car and come on down for the day.
