Henschke to Join KI Food Safari at Southern Ocean Lodge

May 10, 2014 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Acclaimed South Australian winemakers Stephen and Prue Henschke have joined the line-up for Kangaroo Island’s most anticipated annual gourmet adventure, the 2014 KI Food Safari at Southern Ocean Lodge.

The couple behind the celebrated Henschke label will join a spectacular feast for guests at Southern Ocean Lodge in August, presenting a succession of matched wines on the first night of the safari.  Included will be an exclusive preview of the 2012 Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz, not due for release until later this spring.

To be hosted by Barossa cooking legend Maggie Beer and renowned Sydney chef Mark Best, this year’s KI Food Safari promises to be among the most exciting events on Australia’s food calendar.  It will run from August 2 to 9, 2014, and combines the elegant cliff-top luxury of Southern Ocean Lodge with daily expeditions to the gourmet growers and producers of Kangaroo Island.

Baillie Lodges Managing Director James Baillie said the addition of Stephen and Prue Henschke to the program represented an alignment of philosophies between the winemakers and the Lodge.

“Henschke is one of the most prestigious wine labels in Australia and a company committed to producing a high-quality sustainable product,” Mr Baillie said. “This is the same philosophy that runs through many of our local suppliers at Southern Ocean Lodge and it’s also the hallmark of many of Kangaroo Island’s best food and wine producers.”

Other highlight experiences at this year’s safari will include the fine cheeses and yoghurts of Island Pure Sheep Dairy, a visit to the green pastures of Southrock Lamb and a stroll through the shady groves of KI Olive Oil. Guests might pluck marron and abalone from the farm, savour pure Ligurian honey straight from the hive and shuck oysters fresh from the leases at American River.

In between, guests will be able to eat, drink and rub shoulders with their hosts at winery lunches, cooking demonstrations, barbecues and sunset drinks. Each night will involve a celebration of the day’s harvest with a spectacular menu served around the table at Southern Ocean Lodge.

The KI Food Safari is priced from $7350 per person twin share including seven nights at Southern Ocean Lodge, return flights between Adelaide and Kangaroo Island, a daily itinerary of excursions, produce tastings and demonstrations, all dining and premium beverages.
