Come to Coonawarra this holiday season
There is so much to see and do in the Coonawarra at this time of the year, and the weather is amazing. The region is buzzing with excitement as we gear up for the summer line-up of events, our amazing wines are bottled and ready for you, and people come from afar to experience all that the Coonawarra has to offer.
So, at the risk of being controversial, we’re going to give you our top 3 reasons to visit Coonawarra this holiday season.
Visit Raidis Estate
Now you might be thinking that we have to say that, but it’s not the case (even though we may be a little biased). We have so many exciting things coming up here that we would come here ourselves (if we didn’t already live here!), and because we are here we’re going to make sure we stay.
For anyone who’s been following our blogs, you will have noticed the brilliant food and wine pairings which we have created to get your mouths watering, with each Raidis Estate wine finding its perfect match. So, in the lead up to your Christmas feast, come visit us and get your ‘foodspiration’ from our delicious wines.
And with the dawning of the new year, comes one of the biggest events on the Raidis calendar, with our Summer Shindig lighting up Raidis Estate early January.
The weather in the Coonawarra is absolutely stunning this time of the year, with long, warm days setting the scene for fun-filled times traversing the cigar strip running through the middle of Coonawarra. This is not to mention experiencing the excitement and anticipation building in the region as the new vintage leaves firmly take hold on the vines creating a sea of green throughout the vineyards, meaning that the next vintage of stunning Coonawarra wines is just around the corner.
And if you need any more, we are located just a short drive to the coast, so when the weather gets just that bit too warm, you can grab a bottle of wine and head to the beach to relax and unwind in style.
Take a winery tour and let someone else do the hard work
We are blessed with options when it comes to chauffeured tours through this stunning region we call home, and with around 20 wineries nestled within a 7km radius, it hardly puts a strain on your patience as you move from one to the next.
Each of the Coonawarra’s wineries has their own house style and make their wines just that bit differently, which results in a beautiful variation in the wines and each winemaker’s expression of the varietals, ensuring that there’s something for everyone’s palate.
So, there you have it. Our top 3 reasons to come to Coonawarra this holiday season. Whether you visit this year or next, we’ll be here waiting to welcome you into our region and make sure that you love every minute of your time here.
See you soon.
