Fables, fairy stories and fantasy - an exhibition
As part of the 2019 History Festival

When William and Sarah Kay arrived in South Australia from northern England in 1850 they brought a love of books and reading. This passed on to their descendants resulting in an extensive and fascinating family library containing over 170 years of publications.

Five generations of children’s books, written by both Australian and international authors, have been selected for display. Visitors can contemplate and be surprised how stories and illustrations for children have changed since the 1800s, all while enjoying a taste of fine wine and the best view in McLaren Vale from the comfort of Kay Brothers Cellar Door.

On display now until July 31st

Kay Brothers Cellar Door Gallery is open 7 days. 9am - 5pm Mon-Fri and 11am-5pm Weekends.



A Cure for Winter Blues Wine and Charcurier Masterclass

Sunday June 9th - 2019


This masterclass will offer people the opportunity to taste Kay Brothers’ premium wines that have been expertly paired with some of South Australia’s finest charcuterie from Parma Handcrafted Cured Meat, in the surrounds of their heritage-listed cask room at Kay Brothers Winery in the McLaren Vale.


The winemaker, Kay Brothers, is the oldest winery in McLaren Vale still in founding family hands, and they have continued the tradition of specialising in premium red wine production. All wines produced at the winery are still pressed using the traditional 1928 basket press, a process that results in superior quality wines


The Charcutier, Parma Handcrafted Cured Meat, is located in the heart of the Adelaide foothills, the epicentre of food, wine and culture. Calabrian smallgoods artisan, Pasquale, and chef and passionate cured meat aficionado, Massimiliano from Verona, established the proudly South Australian company, which is founded on the philosophy of providing high-quality, locally-sourced, meats, produce and artisan salumi.

Drink (and Eat) History

Tickets: $99

When: Saturday June 8th 2019

Time: 6:30pm for a 7pm start


Food has always played an integral part in the Kays’ story.

From days gone by when Amery was a self-sustaining farm, providing for family, workers and friends alike, to the modern day when much is made of pairing high quality food and wine, the two have gone hand-in-hand and always seem to be better shared with other people.

Generations have grown up at Amery, each with their own special memories of meals prepared and recipes shared.

This event will look to re-imagine some of those family favourites – with a modern twist. 


Tickets include three courses, each served with matching selections of Kay Brothers wine, accompanied by music and hopefully some laughter and conversation.
