“Margaret River on Tour Showcase Evening” brings together a showcase of food, wine and travel-related offerings from the Western Australian winemaking region on Thursday 22 August 2019 at Grand Hyatt Singapore.
The highlight event of Margaret River on Tour 2019, “Margaret River on Tour Showcase Evening” will see more than 30 wineries, and travel and hospitality businesses from the region will descend on Singapore to display their wares. Margaret River on Tour builds on its previous outreach efforts – First Class in a Glass back in 2016, followed by a celebration of 50 years of winemaking in the region in 2017, and then the first Margaret River on Tour last year in October.
Guests will meet winemakers and sample pours from award-winning estates such as Vasse Felix, Cape Mentelle, and Xanadu, and discover up-and-coming wineries such as L.A.S. Vino, McHenry Hohnen, and Whicher Ridge. Chef Evan Hayter of Arimia Winery and Restaurant will treat gourmands to a ‘live’ demonstration of his culinary skills and invite them to taste his dishes featuring seasonal organic and biodynamic produce from the southwest region and the Arimia farm.
New this year is a photo exhibition that captures the natural beauty and majestic ruggedness of Margaret River by internationally acclaimed local photographer Russell Ord, who will be on hand to talk to guests about his passion and his images.
Also new this year is the CinefestOZ Pop Up Cinema, showcasing a taste of Australia’s premiere destination film festival, held in the heart of Margaret River every August.
Providing the evening’s entertainment will be Josh “Koomal” Whiteland, a Wadandi custodian whose ancestors walked the ancient land of the Margaret River region for more than 50,000 years. Josh will introduce guests to the world’s oldest living culture with his authentic personal interpretation through music and presentation.
Guests are welcome to bring home their favourite Margaret River wines and other local products which will be for sale on-site or book their very own Margaret River experience with the region’s travel partners.
The ticket for the Margaret River On Tour Showcase Evening – which includes a sampling of all wines presented, food, and a take-home Plumm wine glass valued at $25 – is priced at $75 per guest and can be purchased here.
