Mother’s Day 

Looking to dine out with Mum to celebrate Mother’s Day? Here’s a few of the options on offer in the city:

The Little Heroes Foundation is hosting a Mother’s Day Luncheon at the National Wine Centre on Friday (ahead of the actual day on Sunday), with two courses plus a dessert buffet and Paracombe wines. Tickets are $130 and can be purchased here.

At Plant 4 in Bowden there will be a lunch inspired by the flavours of Afghanistan and the Middle East, prepared by Shirni Parwana (of Parwana Afghan kitchen), paired with teas from The Tea Catcher. Tickets are $65 (bookings here) and include a glass of bubbles on arrival.

Coal Cellar + Grill at the Hilton Adelaide is serving up a buffet breakfast with glass of champers ($42 per adult) from 6.30am-10.30am, and a brunch from 11.30am-2.30pm featuring a selection of hot, cold, bakery and sweet options. Tickets here.

Jamie’s Italian is offering a $35 two-course meal with complimentary glass of wine for mums, with options including truffle tagliatelle, Sicilian chicken, Venetian fish bake and a “Classic Super Food Salad” – plus you can get a dessert plank for an extra $5. See the menu here.

Pint of Science – May 15-17

You can learn a lot over a pint, particularly if you’re sharing the front bar of The Wheatsheaf with leading scientific minds. Pint of Science is bringing three nights of deep thought to the pub, focussing on how diet influences gut health, whether venom is always a bad thing, and the evolution of our agricultural practices. If knowledge and beer are your things, head here to grab a $5 ticket.

Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend – May 19-22

Almost 40 wineries, three breweries and 30 restaurants will be participating in events during the Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend this month. The program includes tasting and blending sessions, master-classes, opportunities to meet the winemakers, picnics, gourmet breakfasts, long-table lunches, live music and more. See the full program for event details and shuttlebus services.

The Fruitful Pursuit [Autumn ’17] – May 27

The Fruitful Pursuit is bringing the best forward-thinking winemakers to The Henry Austin, including South Australian favourites Jauma, Sanglier and The Mysterious Mr Black. The event will also feature a heavy roster of interstate talent, officially launching The Fruitful Pursuit’s broader national focus. Tickets are $65 plus booking fee, and the event will run from noon until 4pm on Saturday, May 27.

Crafers Wine Dinner Series with BK Wines – May 30

The Crafers Hotel Wine Dinner Series is bringing chefs, sommeliers and winemakers together for a perfectly matched meal. Brendon Keys of Basket Range winery BK Wines will MC the evening with star sommelier Liinaa Berry. Call Crafers Hotel on 8339 2050 to book.

Gin King Debate – June 1

Gin is serious business in South Australia and two industry heavyweights, Prohibition Gin and Bombay Sapphire, will go head-to-head at The Stirling Hotel to settle once and for all who of the two will be crowned Gin King. Guests will get to sample each distillery’s most popular gins, with matching botanicals, accompanied by finger food. Tickets are $45 and available here, or for more information see the event page.

Sea and Vines – June 10-12

Sea and Vines Festival is back in McLaren Vale this June long weekend, and the region’s venues and producers have quite a spread planned. There will be Pizza Lock Ins, Porchetta Parties, a Blues and Brews Cabaret, and plenty more. For further details, see the website.

Slice and Dice – June 19

There are two musts when heading to McLaren Vale: one is Alpha Box and Dice and the other is Pizzateca. Like good neighbours do, the two are joining forces for Slice and Dice, a pizza and wine event not to be missed. Buses leave from the CBD and will carry you from one venue to the next – all you have to worry about is whether to start on white or red, a margherita or quattro formaggi. Tickets available here.

Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival – July 28-30

The 2017 Beer & BBQ Festival at the Adelaide Showground will feature Canadian dude-food legend Matty Matheson, of the SBS Viceland show Dead Set on Life, among guest chefs and restaurants that will present their take on barbecue. More than 60 beer and cider brands will be on show in the main beer hall, and there’ll be a beefed-up music line-up including Regurgitator, Ali Barter and West Thebarton Brothel Party. Read more here about the ABBF and other craft beer events coming to Adelaide in July.

Winter Reds – July 28-30

The Adelaide Hills will be warming up during Winter Reds, a festival showcasing the region’s best winter drops.
