This year’s Barossa Gourmet program has an array of culinary, wine and entertainment delights, all designed to take the chill out of winter. The program will be in full swing from morning till night on the 25th and 26th of August, with an expanded range of offerings.
Choose from traditional Barossa Gourmet experiences that include fabulous food, wine and music with no prior bookings at Whistler, Kaesler, Elderton, Peter Lehmann and a host of other Barossa wineries or book into a number of very special experiences.
The Gourmet program has stretched the Barossa boundaries to include international food styles matched with our region’s wines. The music too will stretch from blues and jazz to tango, flamenco, country and rock n roll. And the grand piano at Richmond Grove will delight the classical music lovers.
Special Saturday dinners are being staged by Turkey Flat, Barossa Valley Estate and Gomersal Wines. On Sunday afternoon, Ross Estate will match their wines to the flavours of Spain.
Krondorf Road will be a hub of activity with Rockford hosting a Krondorf Farm Breakfast each morning, Villa Tinto firing up the Argentine BBQ and Barossa Vines providing traditional Gourmet Weekend fare.
Special features included this year are family friendly activities, a comprehensive designated driver program providing free non-alcoholic drinks for registered designated drivers and a shuttle bus service operating between participating wineries.
The 2007 Barossa Gourmet program will be released today, with a whirlwind of delights to choose from. Phone the Barossa Visitor Information Centre on 1300 852 982 for a program or visit http://www.barossa.com
