Hot 100 Wines is gearing up for another year of celebrating South Australia’s best and most drinkable wines. To celebrate the beginning of the 2017/18 season and 10 years of the Hot 100, we’re throwing a Harvest Party at the newly renovated Darling Building.
As 2017 marks 10 years of the Hot 100 discovering SA’s most drinkable wines, this season’s launch event will bring back more than two-dozen of the top placing wineries and winemakers for tastings throughout the night. Expect to taste wines from 2016’s top 10 winners, including Mr Mick, Ochota Barrels and d’Arenberg among so many others (full list below).

While wine is certainly the centrepiece of the afternoon, we’re also celebrating some of the best in South Australian music, food and design. There will also be a rolling timetable of discussions set around a JamFactory installation, giving attendees the opportunity to come to the table and hear about the current wine landscape, the people at the centre of it, and its intersections with other parts South Australian life.
Live DJ sets from Messin’ Around (Troy J Been and Oisima) and Skin Contact will provide the tunes for the afternoon, while there will be a veritable smorgasboard of brilliant SA food purchasable from Comida, NOLA, Kris Lloyd and Levodo, Steven Ter Horst, smallgoods and bakery item tastings from the next generation of homegrown chefs at TAFE SA, plus non-alcoholic drinks from Cape Grim and Aquasano.

The Hot 100 2017/18 Season Launch will take place in Franklin Street’s freshly renovated Darling Building. Built in 1916 and having laid in dormant disrepair for decades, the Darling Building has been lovingly restored by Williams Burton Leopardi architects. Festivities, discussions and the launch will take place in the building’s classic ground floor and basement spaces.
