New Face of Cellar Door

Meet “Tigger”, a Cairn Terrier, who is currently in training to become our new cellar door dog. His utter cuteness and cheeky personality has taken us all in.

Why the name “Tigger”? Inspiration from this song struck a chord as he bounces through the vineyard.

He’s waiting to meet you!

Barossa Fortified Fest 2013

Held annually in winter.  This year it is Sunday 23rd June 2013 from 11.00am – 5.00pm.

The Fortified Fest is one of those events many people place in their diaries for the following year as soon as the day is over.

It’s the day we celebrate the Liebich family’s great tradition of ageing and blending fortified wines – what the Barossa is famous for!

fortified wine displayHeld in the barrel shed, come rain or shine, this is a great reason to visit the winery and enjoy the company of friends over a glass of wine and home-made food.

This 8th annual Fortified Fest gives you a chance to taste rich and rare fortified from museum stocks of various ages and grape varieties including Muscat, Frontignac, Semillon and Grenache.

Wines from across the range will be available for tasting and purchase by the glass or bottle.

You can even enter your own home barrel blend for judging by experts. Entries are open Australia-wide as long as you can send us 150mL of wine without spilling a precious drop.

Mobile food stalls will be tempting taste buds with a selection of gourmet dishes, cheese platters and sensational cakes (some made with Liebich Tawny). Coffee and tea are also available.

There will be live music to entertain all and activities to keep the kids busy.

If you are thinking about joining us, best call to book your table in the barrel shed.
