Win a family Kimbolton wines tasting ‘flight’*

Details:

Bring the kids to the Kimbolton Wines Family Friendly Cellar Door in Langhorne Creek. The Family Experience includes 2 Adult Wine & Cheese Flights and 2 Kids Flights.

The Wine & Cheese Flights are designed to take you on a journey of discovery. The team at Kimbolton have matched four Kimbolton Wines with four local artisan cheeses. These matches change seasonally depending on cheese and wine availability, but also so that there is always something new to discover at the Kimbolton Wines Cellar Door.

The Kids flights have been designed so parents and children can interact in a setting that is usually dedicated to the grownups.

The Kids flight includes 3 Bickfords cordials matched with a tasting of cheese, kabana, Tommy chocolate turtle, a packet of Kimbolton colouring pencils, an activity pack and bubbles. (GF & Dairy free options available)

Enjoy an outside giant game of Connect 4 or try your hand at bocce on our lawn while visiting Kimbolton Cellar Door. There is something for everyone.

Cheetah conservation

Cheetahs are one of the most easily recognisable species in Africa, with their claim to fame being their record-holding title of fastest land mammal on the planet. This, combined with their distinctive coats, long slender limbs and characteristic ‘tear marks’, makes this iconic animal a beloved species around the world. But sadly, with a classification of vulnerable to extinction in the wild, the future of these striking carnivores is uncertain.

With an estimated tiny 6,700 individuals remaining in the wild of eastern and south-western Africa, the Cheetah is now considered the continent’s most endangered big cat. The reason why, as with many other species fighting extinction, is complex and multifaceted, but the decline can be partially attributed to issues such as habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict and the illegal wildlife trade.

Monarto Safari Park and Zoos SA proudly support The Cheetah Conservation Fund

The Cheetah Conservation Fund is dedicated to saving Cheetah in the wild and undertakes research, habitat restoration, human-wildlife conflict resolution and alternative livelihoods, and education activities.
