2018 Barossa Gourmet Weekend
Spring will provide the perfect setting as Barossa Gourmet Weekend returns in 2018 boasting an even greater celebration of the region’s seasonal wine, food and experiences. The three-day event features 32 events, including seven Gourmet Trail events, and showcases authentic regional food of provenance sourced from local producers and accompanied by quality world-class wines.
Enjoy a weekend of intimate tastings, secret dining experiences, masterclasses, workshops, lingering long lunches, garden parties, platters and feasts of fresh produce.
From blending your own gin and demystifying the fine art of cooking game meats, to comedy acts in the vines and olive oil masterclasses, Barossa Gourmet Weekend is perfect for wine enthusiasts, foodies and families wanting to discover the Barossa.
Take the road less travelled, choose your own adventure and create your own unique Barossa experience by picking and choosing from a series of ticketed and free events. Or take part in the Gourmet Trail and explore the seven trail events scattered across the region. A $10 Gourmet Trail pass includes a souvenir glass and gives you access to all trail events – beat the queues and pre order yours online.
Barossa Gourmet Weekend forms part of Tourism Barossa’s new Barossa Seasons program which showcases seasonal wine and food events during winter, spring, summer and autumn.
