The Adelaide Fringe season is the highlight of my year, every single year. Being the second biggest arts festival in the world (after Edinburgh), where artists, performers, and storytellers come together for a jam packed month of festivities, fun, and fabulousness, the city of Adelaide always comes alive during this time and attracts locals and tourists alike on a large scale.
Being a part of the Adelaide Fringe over the last 2 years, my love for this season has only blossomed with time. Just like wine – it simply gets better with time!
Speaking of wine, long-time partner and supporter of Adelaide Fringe – Tomich Wines -has just announced their brand new Tomich Fringe Wine Collection. Available from January 2019, 5% of the proceeds will support Fringe artists through the Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund, to support emerging Australian artists. What makes this deal even sweeter is that all Fringe 2019 venues will also have exclusive access to these wines from $10 LUC (landed unit cost).
Sporting the artwork of the 2019 Poster that was created by Matthew Clarke as their wine labels, the unique and local boutique range of wines (that have been specifically created for the Festival) will boast of a velvety red wine (NV Adelaide Hills), a classic white Sauvignon blanc (2017 Adelaide Hills), and a “gutsy” Shiraz (2017 South Australia) – all of which will be the perfect accompaniment to the balmy evenings and nights that await us around Fringe season early next year. By using the same artwork, Tomich Wines hopes to inject Clarke’s idea of representing himself at the Fringe and offer the similar concept of making people happy through the delicious drops of wine that are on offer.
Supporting the Adelaide Fringe festival beyond the city limits, lovers of this festival can also expect to enjoy a Fringe Festival In The Vineyard, which will be held in Woodside (Adelaide Hills), where a number of installations and shows will be on offer across the vineyard. Lunches under the trees, tents with a Roman theme, and art installations throughout the vineyard will be just some of the exciting Fringe-y experiences that will be a part of this unique venture.
The Tomich Fringe Wine Collection offer will be available from January 1st 2019 – March 30th, 2019.
With thanks to Cassie Young from Be Young PR for the invite to this event.
