Winter Reds Adelaide Hills Festival

Coates Wines, part of the ‘Kuitpo Kollective’ group of wine producers in Kuitpo is excited to be presenting a Hunter Gatherer luncheon for this years Adelaide Hills Winter Reds festival. Featuring wines that are grown, crafted and bottled at our winery paired with a menu that is locally sourced.


This luncheon will be held in Coates Wines cellar door and barrel hall at 185 Tynan Rd Kuitpo. Located on the top of the vineyard, our cellar door is an open space with gorgeous panoramic views of the valley and rolling hills beyond.  Paintings adorn the walls by local SA artists and there is an extensive wine and food library to peruse at your leisure.


Duane Coates, owner and winemaker of Coates Wines, has a European focus with his wine making style. At the small end of boutique, these are very much hand crafted wines; wild yeast ferments and finest quality French oak are used throughout the range. The wines are thoughtfully made and showcase the regional cool climate characteristics of Kuitpo.


Rebecca Stubbs, partner, resident chef and winemaker in training, has worked at many high-end restaurants in Adelaide and overseas, most recently 2KW. Working with regional food is Rebecca’s passion and her menus always celebrate the wide range of ingredients on her doorstep. The menu will feature mushrooms gathered from the Kuitpo forest, wild fennel and dessert blackberries harvested from the back roads near the winery.
