Couples who love all things fresh food and wine will love taking a few days out to experience the best of the Barossa region with the Barossa Vintage Festival. A celebration of the rich heritage and gastronomic pleasures of this renowned region in South Australia, the Barossa Vintage Festival will be running from 15-19 April. Couples will be spoilt for choice on what they can see and do (and eat) as they can experience their pick of 95 events over 5 days. From grand feasts to market bazaars, long table lunches and even gastronomic golf! There’s a little something for everyone.
Set in an authentic vintage show hall of long feasting tables, old-world charm and intimate conversation. Wine makers will drink with you, roving players will beguile you, and a 7-piece swing band with dancers will keep you serenaded as you eat your way through a grand feast buffet. The Feast will give you a real taste of celebration – Barossa style.
Sunday Spanish Breakfast
A Spanish breakfast fiesta awaits you on the lawns of Yelland & Papps’ cellar door. Tuck into a bountiful spread by Elli Beer whilst enjoying a glass or two of vino. Then take a swing at the piñata and be captivated by a roving Spanish band and bubble blower. This is the perfect start to your vintage Sunday morning.
The Scarecrow Trail
Pack a lunch, grab your bicycle and follow the famous Scarecrow trail through the spectacular scenery of the Barossa. The Scarecrows, each with their own unique identity, will guide you from winery to winery on one of the most memorable cycling routes you’re ever likely to take.
Wine Bluffs – A Comedy Wine Tasting!
Comedians Damian Callinan & Paul Calleja will walk you through an enthralling cellar door experience with a comedic twist. With a combined 30 years in the comedy industry and even longer in the cellar, they know their wines and have the punch lines to match!
Full Moon Farm Gate
A traditional market hosted in a picture perfect setting at Langmeil Winery. Wander through the beautiful stone buildings and stables filled with vendors offering local and homemade produce. With live music from local musos, it’s a true celebration of all the reasons to love being in the Barossa!
