Bleasdale Vineyard - 171 Years Old Winery
Established in 1850 by Frank Potts, Bleasdale is the spiritual home of Langhorne Creek. The Bleasdale winemaking team's philosophy is to capture the essence of what makes Langhorne Creek red wines so attractive – vibrancy, harmony, and texture. Cabernet Sauvignon has elegance and stunning depth of flavour, Shiraz is a ripe fruit style with refined cool climate spice elements, and Malbec is perfumed and finely structured.
Paul Hotker is the current Senior Winemaker. He and his team are achieving excellent result both nationally and globally.
Each vintage, over 200 different parcels of wines are made, all expressing their own individuality based on the micro-climate and soil type of the vineyards they have come from.
In September every year, Paul and his team spend three days assessing every parcel of wine, aided by two independent judges, from which they will create the script for each final blend to be assembled.
The winemaking team’s philosophy is to allow the region to express naturally what it produces with minimal influence by winemaking.

Let's Go Hotpot
If you don’t know what Hotpot is.
Chinese hotpot is a glorious communal feast and is easy to prepare with the right equipment and ingredients. And it’s a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) style. There are different hotpot styles around Asia, and even within a given country, each household will do it a little differently.
But if there's one universal hotpot rule, it's this: You don't "hotpot" with people you don't like. Like fondue, hotpot is one of the most social of dining formats. Not only are you gathered at one table sharing a meal, but you're also cooking your food together in a shared pot.
However, Go-in Hotpot breaks the rule!
Go-in Hotpot provides different size of hotpot for both individual and group. You can choose to enjoy a small hotpot just yourself, or you can have a feast with your family and friends in a giant hotpot for up to 6 people.
