Barossa Vintage Festival 2019

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All the traditions of the long-running Barosa Vintage Festival were celebrated in April 2019. We had a ball celebrating a century of Liebich family winemaking heritage in the Barossa Valley. Winemaking is in Ron’s blood starting with his Grandfather, Benno Liebich, who established a family winery in Rowland Flat in 1919.

The cricket theme for the float was selected given that between Ron, his Uncle “Darkie” and grandfather Benno they had notched up 100 vintages not out. We rolled out the turf on the back of a truck, set up stumps, donned the whites and rolled the arm over.

Barossa Vintage Festival 2017 Wrap Up

Benno says “Cheers”
Grape treading crowds
Wine bar at Feast, Folk & Fossick

 

It’s incredible to see the Barossa Vintage Festival being so successful over the last 70 years – the longest running wine festival in Australia!

We were thrilled to meet so many new faces during festival events and at Liebichwein cellar door. Our scarecrow Benno (Ron’s grandfather’s name) was there to wave his glass of plonk to all who passed by in Rowland Flat.

The weather was kind and crowds flocked to popular events like the Vintage Festival Parade which we watched in full for the first time ever! Following the parade, Ron was kept busy organising the Grape Treading Competition. A large audience gathered at Nuriootpa Oval to watch 12 teams of children and adults stomp over 20 buckets of Grenache grapes. Ron has since turned this juice into a batch of port.

Congratulations to locals Steve Schiller and Paul Noack of “The Harvesters” for backing up their Grape Treading Champion title from the 2015 festival. They stomped a whopping 1590mL in 2 minutes pipping the Penfolds team by just 20mL.

Another fun event was Feast, Folk and Fossick at Lyndoch where a huge BBQ was built and fired up from 2am on feasting day. Look out for a repeat of this popular event.
