It says it all really, doesn’t it? The Barossa is a region that captivates the imagination, and has an unrivalled bounty of wine, beauty, culture, and produce to offer. So two ‘Barossa. Be Consumed’ events are bringing the fabulous side of Barossa to Sydney and Melbourne this July.
Not just a tasting of the region’s brilliant wines, ‘Barossa. Be Consumed’ also offers an immersion into the food, culture, history and character of what makes up this incredible region. A new and exciting wine event that brings together all these aspects to engage a broad and new audience and help them fall further in love with things Barossa.
Be consumed indeed!
44 Barossa wineries, including the very fabulous Turkey Flat, Atze’s Corner, Yelland & Papps and Schild Estate will be bringing the character and stories behind their wines to each event, accompanied perfectly with generous, traditional and delicious food by one of the region’s favourite eateries, Harvest Kitchen.
To add to the immersive food experience, artisan producers will be featured at the maker’s table, creating traditional favourites; honey biscuits, pickles, preserves and rote grütze, ready to discuss, teach and offer tastings right in the heart of the action.
Kegel, a traditional form of German bowling and one of Barossa’s most treasured pass- times, will offer entertainment for those seeking a little light competition or breather from the culinary delights.
Held at the iconic Meat Market in North Melbourne and the Elston Room and Bay 25 at Carriageworks in Sydney, both of these historic buildings lends themselves to all the facets of the region.
Wine, food, drinks, conversations, culture and tourism activations run throughout the day.
