This week’s episode of The Adelaide Show is an homage to Adelaide Wine Wankers, as we spend an evening with one of the new owners of Treasury 1860, Anna Thomas.
Anna has shifted gears from being a corporate high flyer to being the most over-qualified bar tender and Adelaide Fringe sensation.
This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is a wine from Anna’s Fringe show, How To Drink Wine Like A Wanker.
In IS IT NEWS, Nigel challenges us on stories about .
In 100 Weeks Ago, we take you back to our round table in which we restyled the Adelaide Fringe after an artist backlash in 2015 that the huge program left many of them lost in the swamp.
And in the musical pilgrimage … Todd has lined up Donnarumma’s new single, Alien.
Are you a #winewanker? Anna Thomas is! She's co-owner of @Treasury1860 and an #Adelaide #Fringe performer in How To Drink #Wine Like A Wanker. This episode is a great blend with beautiful structure, and tastes like licking a #Chesterfield sofa https://t.co/QOFFh5NaFx @ADLfringe

In her Adelaide Fringe show, How To Drink Wine Like A Wanker, Anna Thomas strips the tasting process bare, while also stripping her life bare, but then she slowly replaces the layers, showing how Fringe, wine, and life, all intertwine to make a whole. Tonight, in Treasury 1860, a glorious Adelaide bar that she now owns, we plan to swirl, sniff, taste, and reflect upon Anna’s life as we turn these moments and her history into some fond memories for all of us.
I stole that last line about moments and memories, can you give us its full context?

What was it about wine that grabbed you?
Please tell us some cellar door stories.
