Riversands Easter in the Vines goes Virtual!
Riversands Easter in the Vines has been revived as a virtual Easter!
How can you be part of Easter in Vines?
To create some fun while you are in quarantine, our past and current musicians offered to perform their Easter favourites as well as songs nominated by you! This was live-streamed on our Facebook Page 3-6:30 PM on both Easter Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th April 2020. To see a summary of the event click here.

@Home with Ali’s Appetisers
I’m loving this time at home discovering what combos I can create purely from the shelves of my vastly underexplored kitchen. Simple foods with obvious attractions are my starting point while keeping the budget in check. Also we will be promoting Australian grown and Australian made to keep our world turning!. We would love to share your creations too. Included are some quick links to published recipes from others which may help you to get your party started.
Simple food ideas from Ali’s kitchen:
Toasted Sourdough Crostini with Goats Cheese, Basil and Riversands Spicy Liaison Chutney - quick and easy and so so tasty! * Lets Dance
Blinis - mouth size morsels of goodness - choose your toppings. Blinis with Smoked Salmon and Dill Creme Fraiche Recipe *Sparkling Sisters, Major Mitchell White
Cheesy Pastry Twists - add your own blend of herbs and spices. Cheesy pastry twists | Australian Women's Weekly Food *Lets Dance
Oven baked Chicken Tenderloins - try it with a coconut lime sauce. Oven baked Panko, parsley and coconut chicken tenders - Real Recipes from Mums * Beardmore's Dry (sauvignon blanc)
Pita bread pizzas - top with your favourite trimmings *Dr Seidel's Red Moscato.
GINSCATO cocktail: Add 150mls of Sparkling Sisters, 20mls of fruity Gin, a wedge of lemon, mint leaves and ice if desired. A blood orange, fig and ginger gin like Greenalls matches the floral muscat aromas of the Sparkling Sisters. Let us know of a great Australian made gin with these qualities so we can promote this.
Please post a selfie on Facebook so we all stay connected. The best selfie will win a 3 pack prize of their favourite Riversands wine! Any Riversands Wine purchases will help us to keep staff employed during the corona crisis.
