The 18th Riverland Wine and Food Festival (RWFF) may have looked a bit different, but it was a ‘good different’.
Due to the restrictions of COVID-19 this year’s RWFF was held at multiple venues across the Riverland and expanded across three days.
RWFF attendees enjoyed a variety of events including masterclasses, long lunches and tapas and tastings from Riverland producers including 919 Wines and Illalangi; Berri Hotel and Kingston Estate Wines; Salena Estate Wines and Cucina 837; Top Block; Mundoo Ridge and Spook Hill Wines; Bassham Wines; Mallee Estate Wines and Eleni’s Restaurant; Banrock Station; River Jack’s Café; Ruston’s Restaurant; and 23rd Street Distillery.
Of course, it wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of event partners, SATC, Riverland Wine, Berri Hotel and the Berri Barmera Council, District Council of Renmark Paringa and District Council of Loxton Waikerie. Our thanks also to The Murray Pioneer, Magic 931 and 5RM and ABC Riverland.
Many could not imagine a year without the RWFF Festival and this year’s modified format did not disappoint.
It was a true reflection of everything great about the region and a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate food, wine, and the Riverland.
A survey seeking feedback from people who attended this year’s RWFF is available online. Feedback received will help form next year’s event.
