The first ever Winemakers of Tatachilla event will take place on November 3 as a chance for parents and friends of the local Lutheran school to get together and enjoy some great food and wine from the region.
The event will also coincide with the school’s Year 12 art exhibition and is expected to create an even larger amount of people to come and see the artwork.
The school’s marketing and public relations manager, Melanie Hall, said there was already a big twilight food event that took place each year in March, however this event was focused more on the local businesses.
She said it was always positive to be able to build relationships with local businesses, many of whom also had children that attended the school.
“There’s a lot of families in the region associated with various businesses such as wineries and restaurants and there’s plenty on board for this event – so it made perfect sense,” Ms Hall said.
While the twilight food event is a very popular family-friendly event, Ms Hall said the Winemakers of Tatachilla was more of an adult event and gave the school’s parents and friends community a chance to get together and socialise.
Students will be in attendance as the wait staff for the event, while there will also be some casual music being played by some of the music students.
“Spend an evening sampling the delicious tastes of McLaren Vale, while enjoying the sounds of Tatachilla’s nationally recognised Performing Arts students,” Ms Hall said.
“Winemakers of Tatachilla is set to be one of the region’s most sophisticated social events of 2017.”
The art exhibition will kick off proceedings at 6pm in the foyer of the school gymnasium before guests are invited to head into the gymnasium and be wowed by the local food and wine producers.
Tickets are on sale for $45 each and can be purchased via Try Booking. If you need more information, contact the school on 8323 9588.
The ticket includes champagne on arrival, gourmet cocktail food, wine, beer and food tastings, entertainment, raffles and a souvenir wine glass, so it is definitely an event not to miss.
Funds raised from the evening will go towards the development of Stage 2 of the EcoClassroom.
