Food and Wine

16 Oct 2021 Once Only Event

Set amongst the native gumtrees of the Gemtree Eco-trail, Karl Telfer will share his knowledge as he takes you on an inspiring journey of Culture, Connection and Country. Your experience will continue at the Gemtree Tasting Room as you sample some of Gemtree’s finest wines – certified organic and biodynamic, a reflection of the soil from which they came…..wines grounded in earth.

Well-respected and highly regarded, Karl Telfer is a senior man from the Mullawirra meyunna – Dry forest people/family clan which is known today as the Kaurna Nation from the Adelaide region. He is a designer, artist, educator and co-founder of Yellaka – “Old Wisdom – New Ways”, an initiative to keep young people strong in culture and identity, through cultural teachings and learnings. Sharing his cultural knowledge and connection to country at many places and events, Gemtree is honoured to partner with Karl.

Gemtree Wines is family owned and operated and is based in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. Choosing biodynamic and organic regenerative methods to farm its vineyards results in fruit of exceptional quality allowing wines of elegance and purity to be made. This commitment has also seen The Gemtree Eco-trail, once a barren piece of land, become a biodiverse wetland and haven for native birds, plants and animals.
