Barossa Gourmet Weekend 2014


It all started in the mid-80s by a handful of wineries wanting to celebrate the region by showcasing Barossa wines paired with culinary delights over a winter’s weekend at their cellar doors. From these humble beginnings, Barossa…Be Consumed Gourmet Weekend has evolved into a celebration of the best of the Barossa food, wine and arts.

Just one hour from Adelaide, Barossa…Be Consumed Gourmet Weekend will play host to over 35 events during the three day weekend of festivities on 15-17 August 2014.

The 2014 program promises to be a feast of food and wine experiences, family fun days, long lunches, cooking classes and wine master classes.
