“We are inviting anyone who
is interested in premium food and
wine to come along to ‘A seat at our
table’, as it really will be a unique
occasion,” said Caroline Phillips,
Destination Riverland general man-
“It is a great opportunity to get a
group of friends together and expe-
rience something different in the
Riverland under the stars.
“‘A seat at our table’ will allow
you to be fully immersed in excep-
tional food and wine at one of the
most spectacular river-side locations
in the region, not normally accessible
to the general public.
“The Riverland is fast emerging as
a must-visit destination for lovers of
not only wine, but wine alternatives.
“This event showcases our alter-
nate wine varietals plus our local
craft beer, spirits and coolers.”
The iconic food and wine festival
is led by patron and Barossa legend
Maggie Beer, creative director Simon
Bryant (The Cook and The Chef)
and creative curator Jock Zonfrillo
(Restaurant Orana, Adelaide).
Mr Byrant said regional Australia
had a rich display of local produce
“The city is just the start (of
Tasting Australia), so get out to our
regions, visit a farm and meet the
producer, enjoy a wine masterclass
or personalised tasting with the wine-
maker, harvest olives, make sausages
or discover a regional gem,” he said.

RENMARK Paringa Council
has decided against committing
further ratepayer money to a
regional development group’s
plan for the region, at least until
the group further explains its
vision to council.
A motion to commit funding
to the Regional Development
Australia Murraylands and
Riverland (RDAMR) Regional
Roadmap 2016-2020 was laid
on the table at Renmark Paringa
Council’s meeting on Tuesday
and amended to request more
information from its CEO.
The requested funding amount
from Renmark Paringa Council
was $43,919 for three years,
however councillors argued that
the RDA should further explain
its vision before council commits
to the agreement.
Renmark Paringa Council
chief executive officer Tony
Siviour said the RDA was already
due to speak at council next
“We invite them every six
months to come and let coun-
cil know what they’re doing to
address their KPIs (key perfor-
mance indicators),” he said.
“They will just have to expand
on what they were going to pre-
sent and really spell out their
vision for the region.”
The RDA last presented to
council in June last year.
