It’s Time To Head For The Hills!
Howard Vineyard is a family-owned Adelaide Hills winery set amongst towering gum trees, and terraced lawns. Pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot gris and sauvignon blanc are sourced from their 470m altitude Schoenthal ‘Beautiful Valley’ Vineyard, near Lobethal, whilst Howard’s Nairne Vineyard, in the warmer Mt Barker district is home to shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. All the wines are estate-grown.
The Adelaide Hills is one of Australia’s most exciting wine regions and more than just the wine, it’s a way of thinking – they welcome the new and challenge the traditions with a youthful confidence.
Howard Vineyard’s Cellar Door and Restaurant is located just 35 minutes out of the Adelaide CBD.
The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Laughter
One of Adelaide’s treasures, the Adelaide Hills, is literally on the doorstep to Adelaide. It’s the first time Grapes of Mirth will visit the region, and we literally handpicked the wine producer we wanted to work with.
Howard Vineyard have the perfect grounds to host an afternoon of comedy, wine, and music entertainment. Lush expansive lawn areas, an awesome restaurant, a modern cellar door and even a shed bar! And, Onsite parking aplenty, but we’ll also be running buses from the city for those that don’t want to play rock paper scissors to decide who’s driving.
Graze & Sip (if you can stop laughing)
Enjoy some delicious locally sourced produce throughout the event with a glass or three of Howard Vineyard’s wines. Plenty of food will be on offer for the day. Go for a gourmet picnic hamper or enjoy some of Asian inspired food that head Chef Cookie is renowned for, including DUMPLINGS, need we say more? Gourmet grazing at its best! The bar will be fully stocked with your favourite Adelaide Hills wines as well as local beers, cider, soft drinks and coffee.
Dj Pedro Moshman
We have a travelling DJ, his name is Pedro Moshman, we never leave home without him – he’ll keep the festival vibe going between sets and after the comedy show. Bring your dancing shoes, you’ll regret it if you don’t.
