On Thursday the 30th of October the first of a series of global Beerenberg High Teas will showcase the sensory delights of its new Botanicals collection.

The High Tea concept – co-created by Taylor & Holmes’ Kate Hobby – provides a simple formula for any restaurant to showcase the Family Farm produce from Beerenberg, a chef and a region’s finest food & wine.

The concept is being launched in the Adelaide Hills at the iconic Mount Lofty House overlooking the Botanical Gardens – with the Signature Ferguson Lobster Dish from Executive Chef Girard Ramsay and wines from Bird in Hand.

Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne Travel and Food media including Women’s Weekly, Luxury Travel & Delicious Magazine will be flown from interstate, driven in Solitaire luxury vehicles and helicoptered through the scenic Adelaide Hills on an aerial tour including a Masterclass from MW Kym Milne at Bird in Hand Gallery Restaurant, before picking the first of the new season strawberries at the Beerenberg Family Farm then setting down for a Botanical tour and high tea on top of the Escarpment at Mount Lofty.

Chinese media including Beijing Lifestyle TV – Ch 7 and Traveller Magazine are being flown in from Beijing to compare and contrast the High Tea at Mount Lofty with a second Beerenberg Higher Tea Event at the Hilton Beijing Higher Tea Party in November.

100 high profile attendees from Food, Wine, Tourism and the Arts including: Environment Minister Turnbull, NY Yankee Pat Kelly, Port Power’s Hamish Hartlett, South Australian food icons – Alister Haigh and Anthony Paech and many more… will all join the travelling media at 2pm to participate in a flight of JOY flight wine tasting (3 different vintages) and a botanical tour of the Mount Lofty gardens before settling in for the highest of high teas and a helicopter JOY flight over Mount Lofty and Cleland Wildlife Park.

The formalities will start at 3pm and finish at 5pm but the all-inclusive event continues until 6pm then optional drinks on the Heritage Balcony.
