Red wine is for drinking, not keeping at the bottom of the wine rack for that special occasion. This group has been formed to celebrate the dead reds in our cellar. We'd like to thank them for their wonderful contribution into our lives. So crack open that red, give it a tasting and then share the news with the rest of us. How old can that bottle go?
Image by Kim Bach via FlickrThe Dead Reds Wine Group was formed to celebrate and send off, in appropriate style, older wines from our cellars. These are wines we may have been keeping for that special occasion... but we’ve perhaps now also kept a little too long? These are wines that are ten years or older and may have traveled a far bumpier harder road than others. Such wine that might still be a corker, or just simply “corked”?

Have you ever heard of a wine being (Gesertifiseer) Certified before?
If you haven't, you will get to witness, see, smell and maybe even taste the Nederburg Wine, Edelrood from 1986... with another bonus being that the wine is from the Paarl Valley (coastal region), South Africa.
Dead Reds Wake 4 is due to unearth the next round of dead reds in 2 weeks time, Friday 27th March from 7pm. The venue is the Adelaide Bowling Club - in the Adelaide Parklands. Looking forward to catching up with you all again. You know the group/wake rules (and if you don't - please message me).
Take care til then, and enjoy the fringe!!! We caught the BOTOX show the other nite @ Comedy Cellars. AWESOME xx
it's not just a place to share stories, taste some excellent (and dead) wine... you also get to meet up with new people AND perhaps even network a bit. the event has it all. it's what you make it.
