The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2016-01-15T02:51:29Z 2nd annual Taste Eden Riesling Festival 2016-01-15T02:51:29Z 2nd-annual-taste-eden-riesling-festival Presented by Taste Eden Valley, this event promises to be an opportunity for Riesling lovers to immerse themselves in one of the largest portfolios of single vineyard Riesling from Eden Valley. Eden Valley has long been recognized as a globally acclaimed Riesling growing region. With its cooler climate and ancient soils, wines from this region are usually greater in acidity and colour due to the slower ripening temperatures and develop more gently.                                  Taste Eden Valley owner, Melissa Raymond noted “For many, Riesling is akin to a spiritual experience mainly as this white grape varietal is one that truly reflects the place it is grown. As Riesling lovers ourselves, we kicked off the Taste Eden Riesling Festival in 2015 and plan to steadily grow it into an annual regional event for Eden Valley Riesling lovers.” Over 20 Rieslings to taste – aged and current releases Meet many of the producers Platters and wine by the glass available for purchase 20% off all Riesling purchases by the dozen on the day Wines of independent, artisan, wine producers will be available for sampling.

These accolades saw Rehn Bier’s Extra Stout and Belgian style Tripel stand tall in a field of major international brands and Australian household names such as Coopers, James Squire, Tooheys, Carlton United and Matilda Bay. “Winning these 2 bronze medals is definitely the pinnacle of our short brewing history and is something we are extremely proud of”, exclaims Mr Brenton Rehn, Brewmaster. “Particularly because unlike the larger players, we use traditional brewing principles and hand craft every bottle of beer with no automation.” The 21st year of the AIBA was the most competitive yet, attracting a record number of entries and showcasing over 1,480 beers from more than 230 brewers in 35 countries. The artisan beers from Rehn Bier heavily impressed this year’s judging panel, which featured 42 Australian and international industry experts, including representatives from Norway, Belgium, United States, United Kingdom, Japan and New Zealand. Despite this recent acclaim, the small family team at Rehn Bier has no intention to start exporting outside of the region, remaining heavily committed to selling their beer within 100km radius of their base at Angaston. As Mr Rehn explains, “We are strong advocates of low beer miles. We always use local and Australian suppliers where possible believing these ingredients are as good or better as those from anywhere else in the world.” “Our beers are exclusively available from the Barossa Farmer’s Market and our website – we’re local and wish to stay that way.” Based in the beautiful Barossa Valley, the award-winning Rehn Bier micro-brewery is sure to benefit from the increasingly sophisticated palate of Australian consumers as well as an ever-growing demand for quality and freshness of ingredients without the use of additives and preservatives. “At Rehn Bier, our ambition is to give people an alternative to the bland generic lager that has dominated the brewing industry over the last 30 years.  Our beer is all natural with no additives and gives food and beer lovers the opportunity to discover a diverse range of beer styles and enjoy all of the different aromas, flavours and tastes that come with a well made artisan beer.” Meet your favourite Winemaker 2011-04-16T09:40:02Z meet-your-favourite-winemaker This year, 26 of the Barossa’s leading winemakers will host the bi-annual Legends behind the Barrel – one of the many spectacular events presented at the 2011 Barossa Vintage Festival. 2005 saw the introduction of ‘Legends behind the Barrel’ as a strong wine focussed event in the Barossa Vintage Festival calendar. Since then, Legends has grown into an essential ‘must-attend” event and 2011 promises to be no exception. Wine lovers will experience an afternoon immersed among some of Barossa’s pre-eminent producers, from small boutique wineries to the iconic Australian wine brands, showcased together in the one venue. This is not only an exclusive chance to develop sensory skills by tasting and comparing both barrel and current release wines, but also a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with many of Barossa’s leading winemakers, the ‘Legends’ and hear their stories as well as sample previously unreleased wines — direct from the barrels. The response from the local winemaking community to be part of this event has again been phenomenal and besides the large well-known producers, 2011 has also attracted a number of smaller wineries who as yet have not established cellar door facilities. Therefore, this is a rare opportunity to sample up and coming producers. Wineries involved in the 2011 Legends behind the Barrel include: Barossa Valley Estate, Bethany Wines, Cirillo Estate Wines, Chateau Tanunda,Dutschke Wines,Eden Hall, Glenburn Estate, Hart of the Barossa,Head Wines, Jacob’s Creek, John Duval Wines, Kaesler Wines, Liebicwein, McLean’s Farm, Murray Street Vineyards, Penfolds Wines, Peter Lehmann Wines, Rolf Binder Wines, Saltram Wine Estate,Schild Estate,Seppeltsfield, St Hallett Wines, Tait Wines, Wolf Blass Wines, Yalumba Wines, Yelland & Papps The ‘Legends behind the Barrel’, will be a part of the 2011 Barossa Vintage Festival impressive line-up and will be held at Barossa Valley Estate, on Thursday 28th April 2011 An exceptional opportunity no wine lover should miss.
