This year’s Barossa Vintage Festival, 23rd April – 1st May, has a great programme of wine-focused events for wine lovers, and plenty to entertain you too!

There are 120 events during the Festival, starting with free entertainment for the whole family at the opening ‘Carnival’
from 10.30am on April 23 at Seppeltsfield Winery.
The 40 special wine-focused events include Legends Behind The Barrel, where you can meet some of the Barossa’s most influential legends to taste and compare barrel and current release wines.
On the Distinguished Vineyards Tour you can explore some of the world’s most precious vineyards and taste the wines that are produced there, ranging from Henschke’s Hill of Grace to Langmeil’s 1843 Freedom vineyard. For collectors, the Rare & Distinguished Barossa Wine Auction showcases highly sought-after back vintages and large formats of the region’s finest wines.
Visitors can celebrate the end of the week and kick up their heels at Under a Hot Tin Roof, an upbeat band night at the iconic Tanunda Town Hall on Friday the 29th of April or get glamorous at the Grand Vintage Festival Ball on April 30 in the Great Vintage Hall at the iconic Seppeltsfield Winery and indulge in a sumptuous three-course dinner and canapés accompanied by award winning, prestigious Barossa wines.
