It’s that time of year again – time to start planning your Queen’s Birthday long weekend in McLaren Vale. Pre-release Sea & Vines tickets go on sale MONDAY 26 MARCH, and to be on that list you will have bought tickets before or you will be signed up to the mailing list (which you can do right now to go to the head of the line), and tickets are on sale to the general public Tuesday 27 March.

We love seeing familiar faces at the Festival each year and want to thank you so much for your support, especially those of you who choose us for all three Sunday Experience sessions – we don’t want to go out there into that traffic and get stuck behind a bus, and why should you! Of course, we’re always happy to help new fans discover De Lisio too, and this year we have so much more to offer, so it’s a good time to jump on the bandwagon.



What’s there to do?

Still divided into three sessions, you can join us for Sea & Vines Sunday Experience from:
9.00 am – 11.15am
11.30 am – 2.15 pm
2.30 pm – 5.00 pm

Or choose De Lisio for more than one session, there’s plenty to do here. For example, we’re honouring the beach lifestyle of McLaren Vale with our seafood menu options which will pair perfectly with the new releases of our 2017 Sangiovese Rose, 2017 ‘Argento’ Pinot Grigio or 2017 ‘Honeypot’ Moscato.

Is Sea & Vines weekend your annual wine tour weekend, or a traditional birthday celebration? Pull up a chair and have a leisurely breakfast of fluffy buttermilk pancakes, paired with our dry sparkling, or a sparkling and orange juice if you want to ease into the celebrations.

If you’ve come to party hard then you’ll be on the dancefloor where the biggest Sea & Vines band, eight-piece Chesterfield Brass will be blowing you away with their 80s, 90s and noughties covers of your favourite rock, jazz and chart hits.

Or just soak up the atmosphere, as we have a lawn with a view waiting for you to recline in the winter sunshine surrounded by friends, food, wine and music, and rolling hills of photogenic vines in the background.


What’s new?

New release wines – check. New menu items – check. Bigger marquee – check.

What else…If you’ve come to Sea & Vines looking for a frosty refreshment, then we’ve partnered with Vale Brewing this year!

Two-stack buttermilk pancakes served with fresh Alexandrina Cream, jam and maple syrup $7.00

The holiday Monday is the more sedate, family friendly Festival day, so in honour of our Queen bring your most dignified self to the Visitor Information Centre to discover the best The Vale has to offer. The Vale Markets on Sea & Vines Monday are bigger and better every year, and if you’re in doubt just follow the crowds who know where to go to experience the full range of boutique De Lisio wines, an assortment of food vans, delicious handmade delicacies and those one-off market finds.


What’s there to do?

At De Lisio Wines we’re not going to take away our top shelf wines because it’s Festival weekend, we want you to experience everything McLaren Vale has to offer this Sea & Vines, so we have our full range available by the glass or by the bottle to accompany your relaxing holiday Monday.

You can pair a bottle of De Lisio wine with local cheeses, handmade pâté or your favourite Festival foods for lunch. Chill out under the marquee or stake out your place on the lawns to enjoy the entertainment from the dynamic young duo TURNBACK, playing your old school favourites and hits. There’s also a free bouncy castle, petting zoo and face painting for the kids.


What’s new?

The Vale Market is always welcoming new stallholders, so in addition to local produce, arts, crafts, skincare, jewellery, souvenirs and homewares you’re sure to see something that wasn’t here last year.

The Visitor Centre’s adventure play was also unveiled at the end of 2017 and is a great place for your kids to climb, explore and let their imagination run wild across bridges, over rocks and through sand.


What’s there to eat?

Choose your favourites from Adelaide’s best food vans, including wood oven pizzas, gourmet burgers and hot dogs, or rich soups. If you’re just feeling a little peckish, or you want to indulge your sweet tooth, you’ll also find fudge in every flavour, delicate crêpes, and of course that festival-favourite – fairy floss!

The De Lisio family loves the energy and excitement that comes from showing off our region to the more than 20,000 visitors who join us for the Sea & Vines weekend. So however you like to enjoy food and wine in South Australia, we have a Sea & Vines event for you, see you soon in The Vale!
