Wood, Smoke, Earth and Fire @ Dindima

Sat 3 August at 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Soak up the atmosphere of this year’s Fire Festival by joining us for a heartwarming, collaborative afternoon that brings together the Dindima Wines’ team and local ceramicist, Jude Keogh.

We’re offering a rustic, light lunch, featuring succulent smoked meats prepared in a hot smoker by Dindima’s winemaker. These will be served around warming fire pits, in artisan rolls with savoury accompaniments and a glass of your favourite Dindima drop. A vegetarian option of Smokey Vegetable Soup will be available.

Following lunch, Jude will introduce you to her creative world of earth and fire.

You’ll view an exhibition of her superb stoneware, fire pit glazed works of art and she’ll feed your wonder and curiosity with a presentation highlighting her ceramic process, including a demonstration of throwing a pot on her wheel.

This is an afternoon for all ages, culminating in conversation, mulled and un-spiced wine, hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows around the fire pits.

Jude Keogh’s ceramics will be available for purchase from the Cellar Door over the weekend 3 – 4 August, as will Dindima’s premium wines.
