Sanctuary Cove Winter Wine Festival

Australia's Finest wines available for tasting at the Taylors wines dinner hosted by The Fireplace at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort on the Gold Coast
The Culinary Life

Sanctuary Cove is about to have its annual Winter Wine festival and we couldn’t be more excited. What could be better than an excuse to spend your weekend sampling delicious drops?

Hosted on the weekend of 22-23 July, the Gold Coast’s favourite Cove will transform into a wine-lovers fantasy with over 40 stalls featuring various regional, national and international estates and wineries, as well as a number of delicatessen and food stands. Perfect.



InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort has partnered with the multi-award winning Taylors Wines for a number of different events over the weekend, the pinnacle being The Fireplace’s wine dinner. The Fireplace presents: Taylors Wines Luxury Dinner is a three-course flavour sensation designed by the talented InterContinental team paired with wines including tastes of Taylors ‘The Pioneer’ Shiraz of Clare Valley, arguable one of Australia’s finest.

Commenting on the dinners buzz, Executive Sous Chef for the Resort, Jason Turner, said “We are excited to work with Taylors Wines in bringing to the table a collection of tastes that fit our philosophy of showcasing local, high quality produce. We loved creating this menu and cannot wait to share the journey of flavour with our guests.” Matt's pick of the courses? The Beef Wellington, with its delicate pastry and rustic vegetable combination, it hits you with flavours that satisfy those winter cravings for richness. “We have also added a Taylors Shiraz just to ensure a great pairing with the wines chosen- it's a great moment worth sharing.”If a wine dinner isn’t your thing (really?!), perhaps your interest lies in spending the afternoon gorging on coffee, sparkling, dessert and savoury bites a la the Resort’s iconic High Coffee. The rather indulgent affair is perfect for an intimate catch up or an afternoon party, our tip is to try the Espresso Martinis and the coffee-tinged lamingtons- a twist on the Australian classic. More on the High Coffee here.



If you cannot make either of those events, then stop by the complimentary Taylors Wines stand at The Verandah Bar to sample the Taylors Wines collection. The Verandah Bar itself offers a fabulously sophisticated lounge to relax in with a cosy fireplace and views over the tropical resort.

 The Winter Wine festival will no-doubt be a hit and is free to attend, so clear your schedule and call the team, this is one weekend you will be savouring long after it’s over.
