Head to McLaren Vale over the June long weekend for the annual Sea and Vines Festival
Hosting four days of indulgence, decadence and delight, the McLaren Vale Sea and Vines Festival caters for all ages and tastes with a wide variety of events. From intimate degustation dinners with celebrity chefs and winemakers, structured masterclasses, a Spanish inspired fiesta, food trucks, live music, jumping castles and petting zoos – there’s something to suit the whole family. Here’s our pick of the family friendly events and venues:
Monday Zest Day at the Sea and Vines Festival
Monday is the day of the festival where you are able to give thanks for the long weekend, kick back, and enjoy the wines and cuisine available at the venues that are part of Monday Zest. The purchase of a Plumm Vintage outdoor glass at any Monday Zest venue gives you entry into all of venues – no bookings required.
Sea and Vines Monday Zest events are relaxed family-friendly affairs, so don’t be surprised if you spot a petting zoo or a bouncy castle on the lawn!
Kay Brother’s Winery | Monday Zest
