The official start to the Barossa grape harvest, Declaration of Vintage is a unique event in Australia. It begins with the Blessing of the Grapes at Tabor Church, continues with a colourful procession of regally robed Barons of Barossa, a parade of vintage vehicles and ‘grape girls’, led by the pleasing brass sounds of the Tanunda Town Band. The Barossa Winemaker and Viticulturist of the Year are announced and the grapes are crushed in a hand-cranked 100 year old press. The juice is distributed to everyone and the vintage is finally declared!
