Stay tuned for 2024

You will be tested. The sea will intimidate you. The winds will howl at you. And the cold snare of Winter will leave you shaking. Endure... Like we Islanders do. For beyond awaits a feast for gutsy at heart. Where spirits flow free. Spits turn patiently with the promise of a hearty meal. and fires roar with welcoming warmth.

Gutsy Kangaroo Island

June is a time of year that Islanders love to celebrate 'Island Life', its a time to experience food & beverages a little differently. Kangaroo Island isn’t the easiest place to be a producer, but the challenge that the Island presents makes the products that much more unique. Islanders defy the odds, always, whether that be the distance, the weather, or the isolation, to craft their product, and the stories to be told about how they achieve this, are incredible. KI is bold, brave, and love to celebrate with grit their wine, spirits, cider, beer, and food culture that is built on guts and determination.

Bring your coat, your beanie and boots, the fires will be lit, the stills will be full, the vintage is in the barrel, it’s time to celebrate Gutsy Kangaroo Island.
