THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5 Meet the Maker with Martin Strachan of Bleasdale Vineyards 2-4pm FREE Style: In Store Pop-Up Tasting Founded in 1850 by English migrant Frank Potts, Bleasdale is rich in history and is producing some of Australia’s most exciting and consistently impressive premium wines. The philosophy of the Bleasdale winemaking team is to capture the essence of what makes Langhorne Creek red wines so attractive – vibrancy, harmony and texture. Whether it is a Sparkling Shiraz, a Malbec, or the Frank Potts Cabernet, each glass of wine conveys a story that substantiates its history, diversity, and, increasingly, its pedigree. We are elated to welcome Martin Strachan, General Manager of Bleasdale Vineyards, for a tour through the award-winning wines of Australia’s second oldest family owned winery.
