Imagine getting your friends and family together for an exclusive, fully catered soiree featuring food and wine from one of SA’s most lauded wineries – complete with service staff – in the comfort of your own home!  

Award-winning McLaren Vale winery and restaurant, Maxwell Wines, is generously offering an exclusive dining experience as a live auction item at Lutheran Care’s 2023 Gala Dinner. The unique Maxwell at Home experience will feature a multi-course tasting menu, expertly matched with a selection of premium Maxwell wines.

With less than two weeks until Lutheran Care’s Gala Dinner on Friday, November 10, excitement is building for the live auction on the night. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid for the chance to host a special and unique event for 10 people at their place, with the Maxwell at Home experience bringing the winery’s friendly team into the successful bidder’s home.

Recently awarded Best Regional Restaurant in South Australia by delicious. 100, named among Gourmet Traveller’s Top 10 Restaurants in SA, and receiving two Chefs Hats at the 2022 Australian Good Food Guide Awards, this is a rare opportunity to experience some of the country’s best food and wine at your own dining table.

Maxwell’s kitchen team, led by Executive Chef Fabian Lehmann, will prepare a creative and thoughtful menu using the highest quality produce and ingredients expertly matched with premium Maxwell wines including rare gems from the Maxwell cellar. You will be taken care of with warm, considered service, ensuring a memorable dining experience with your family and friends.

In addition to this experience, you will receive full set up and pack down for the event, including the provision and preparation of table settings, glassware, cutlery, crockery, linen and menus. Plus the kitchen and dining spaces will be cleared and cleaned for your convenience.

“Maxwell Wines is well renowned for its outstanding wines and food experiences and we thank them for their generosity and support of our upcoming Gala Dinner,” Lutheran Care Chief Executive Officer Rohan Feegrade said.

“We are incredibly grateful for this fantastic donation to the live auction, which will help us raise more funds for South Australians in crisis.”

Lutheran Care is also delighted to feature Maxwell wines at its 2023 Gala Dinner, which guests will enjoy over a delicious three-course dinner and into the evening.

Established in 1979, family owned Maxwell Wines, situated in the heart of McLaren Vale, has built a reputation for producing handmade, rich and robust reds from their estate vines that combine exquisite fruit quality with structure and finesse. If you make a bid on the Maxwell at Home experience at the Gala Dinner but happen to miss out, it’s still well worth a visit down to McLaren Vale to experience the Maxwell team’s hospitality on site. Complementing the estate vineyards is the Maxwell Cellar Door and Restaurant, built with seductive locations for spectacular occasions.

General Manager Jeremy Maxwell said,“Recently renovated, the design of the venue is all about bringing the outside in, so there’s beautiful views from every point of the cellar door and restaurant”.

“You’re either overlooking the winery production or you’re looking out onto the vineyards and rolling hills.”

The 2023 Lutheran Care Gala Dinner will be held at Adelaide Oval on Friday, 10 November. The event is a major fundraiser for the charity’s in-demand Emergency Relief program, which supports South Australian families and individuals in crisis.
