The Cellar Door Fest team are deeply saddened by the devastation caused by the recent bushfires, and our hearts and thoughts are with all South Australian producers and growers that have been affected in Kangaroo Island and the Adelaide Hills.

To give back to the industry that has given us so much support, we will be running some special fundraising activities at our 2020 Festival to benefit the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island bushfire appeals. Among these, we will be selling our popular Cellar Door Fest wine glass holders for $10 each, with 100 percent of proceeds supporting the Adelaide Hills Wine Region Fire Appeal and the Kangaroo Island Mayoral Relief and Recovery Bushfire Fund. In addition, we will be hosting a Silent Auction on Friday, 7 February, highlighted by a bottle of Penfolds Grange.100 percent of proceeds from the Silent Auction will also be shared between these two funds.

In addition, the 2020 Festival will feature a special ‘Bushfire Relief Market– a zone dedicated to showcasing producers directly impacted by the recent bushfires and providing them a free platform to sell their wares. Among brands currently confirmed for this area are: New Era Vineyards; Golding Wines; Nova Vita Wines; Anderson Hill; Barristers Block; Art Wine; Henschke and Petaluma Wines from the Adelaide Hills, and Kangaroo Island Spirits and Dudley Wines from Kangaroo Island.

Now, more than ever, all the businesses impacted by the terrible bushfires need our help. We encourage you to eat, drink and buy local – and when it is safe to do so, plan a visit to each of the regions and #gowithemptyeskies.
