Coonawarra Visits The Ark - Friday, 8 April

Some of the best Coonawarra wineries are visiting the Arkaba Hotel – all in one room, for one day only! 

Your table will be paired up with a mystery Coonawarra winery, where you will receive an intimate tasting and introduction to their most loved wines whilst enjoying a delicious 3-course menu - but you're more than welcome to try wines from any other winery on the day as well, with an hour tasting session to start the afternoon with roving canapes.

Featuring the best Rieslings, Chardonnays, Sparkling, Pinot Gris, Red varietals and few others you may not have tried before, from the region.

You won’t know what winery you will be dining with until you are sitting at your table - but who doesn’t love a surprise!
