The 2015 Barossa Gourmet Weekend is almost upon us and we are all busy getting everything organised for another successful year. This year’s event has a fantastic program chock full of deliciousness so I want to highlight a few of those events here, plus give some tips to make your Gourmet Weekend a fun and safe one. For a full list of events running over the Gourmet Weekend head to the official website.
Head over to Kellermeister for their Gourmet Curry Dinner.
Kick-start the 2015 Barossa Gourmet Weekend with a selection
of gourmet curries by Stuart Oldfield, live music and our award
winning wines & cider in the ambient setting of our barrel hall!
Of course on Saturday the best place to be is Gibbo’s for a beautiful breakfast by Andre’s Cucina and Polenta Bar.
This year Andre will be preparing baked crepes with truffled egg, spinach, mozzarella, Italian sausage & brandied cream, yum! Gibson’s favourite sons Cousin Leonard will be gracing us with their soulful tunes all weekend along with local artists Free Genie.
Pies Port and Petanque at Seppeltsfield is a great way to spend the afternoon or even just a couple of hours.
Owen Andrews, proudly bring you Pies, Port & Petanque. Indulge in range of Barossa artisan pies, both savoury and sweet, whilst sipping on a soul-warming glass of Seppeltsfield’s iconic Tawny Port. Enjoy the sounds of local boys Colonel Mustard, whilst enjoying a casual game of petanque within the beautiful Seppeltsfield gardens.
Kick start your day at Lyndoch Hill with hearty breaky!
What’s even better than poached eggs for breakfast? Barossa Valley Free range poached eggs by wood fire of course! Spinach, tomatos and herbs straight from our own kitchen garden and everything else sourced as close to us as possible.
Join the Pfeiffer family for a glass by the open fires within our relaxed estate setting.
Two Brothers Catering will be warming the winter mood all day with their deep Southern American style food, while your toes will be tapping with entertainment by the Valley Cats and their swinging blues.
- Take it slowly! There is no point rushing the incredible sensory overload of wonderful local produce. Chat to the lovely team at the Visitor Information Centre about accommodation options.
- Become an RAA Designated Driver. Designated drivers are heroes and, to thank them, we are offering a showbag of lovely goodies at participating wineries. All registered Designated Drivers will go in to the draw to win a mixed case of Barossa wine to enjoy when they are not safely transporting their friends. Register to win here.
- Catch the Link SA Gourmet Shuttle Bus. Get a group of mates together and hop on to the bus to explore a variety of wineries showcasing events over the weekend. The bus will loop regularly and the ticket includes your souvenir shatterproof wine glass. Tickets are $35 per day and can be purchased here.
- Take in the sights by hopping on a bike. There is a dedicated bike path right through the Barossa that passes many of the wineries hosting events over the weekend. The Bicycle Hub, adjacent the Visitor Information Centre in Tanunda, has lockers, showers and bike hire facilities available.
