Crush Festival, the largest food and wine event in the Adelaide Hills, returns later this month.

“Crush is so much more than just a wine and food festival. It’s a celebration of the best things about life in the Adelaide Hills.” Minister for Tourism Susan Close said.

More than 20,000 people are expected to attend the weekend festival, which will feature 41 wineries across a range of free cellar door and ticketed events.


“This year’s program offers a great line-up of events such as the Long Lunch Table at Barristers Block Wines or a Pinot Masterclass at Honey Moon Vineyard a venue that is not usually open to the public.” Ms. Close said.

‘Play it Cool’ is the theme again for this year’s festival, which means participating venues could be offering anything from cool jazz music to chilled, cool-climate wines.


Crush Festival will run from Friday, 27 January 2017 to Sunday, 29 January 2017. The event is managed by Adelaide Hills Wine Region who also runs the popular Winter Reds Weekend in July.

This year’s festival received funding through the State Government’s Regional Events and Festivals Program. This is in addition to the extra $70 Million the State Government has invested in tourism to market South Australia nationally and internationally and attracts major events.

Last year, South Australia officially became a member of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network, a group of major cities linked to internationally renowned wine regions.
