Cornucopiacation

Fun at Cornucopiacation

What is Cornucopiacation?!

Our Black Sheep Vineyard in an earlier life was called Cornucopia, due to an abundance of different fruit trees – it was full of currant vines, fig trees, plums, apples and pears.

Cornucopiacation, that combines education, a hands-on harvesting experience, fine dining and being part of the creation of an Amarone style Shiraz from our 111-year-old vines. It is a day of abundance, experiencing the atmosphere of vintage.

It’s not the first time in the history of our family that we’ve had a cornucopia – when Hugh’s great, great, great, grandfather Richard arrived in the colony of South Australia in 1837 – he planted one of the first mixed farms. It had a bit of everything – fruit trees, vegetables, crops - but he had one thing missing. Vines! So Richard planted what were the first grape vines to produce wine in SA.

This will be an annual event that can be booked by corporate or social groups – it is a delightful interplay between the rustic charm of our historic vineyard and an immaculately styled lunch in our old shed.

Hi Hugh and Team. I wanted to thank you for an absolutely stellar event last week. As you are aware we had a rather diverse client group attend and the feedback was the best we have ever received for any client event. From our arrival, and harvest right through to the close of the lunch every aspect was faultless and beyond our expectations. Our clients really enjoyed the grape picking and like me were thankful that this was not our fulltime gig, it is very hard work! Your entire team were amazing from the very start right to the end, the food was superb and the wines as expected did not disappoint. I would certainly recommend the Cornucopiacation Event to anyone that is seeking a unique group experience. We look forward to joining you again next vintage.
