Once again, we cleared out the sheds to host this annual event with pop up wine bar, band on stage and mobile food vendors. We were all glad for the shed space as the day was a cold blustery day in late June.
We had our most diverse range of food yet which pleased young and old. Popular Adelaide food truck Sneaky Pickle served up a tasting plate of a mini pulled pork bun and beef brisket burger with fried and fried pickles on the side. Alexandrina Cheese Company ?trekked all the way from Mt Compass to offer cheese tastings, platters and cheeses to take home. And for sweets, Little Dot Bake Shop returned after a successful outing at our 20th Anniversary celebration with divine sweet indulgences. There was also a stall selling quality dried stonefruit from the Riverland (the same used in our drunken fruits).
Music was provided by the local trio Finnigan who kept the crowd swaying with a good mix of folk and country with an Irish twang. Children were kept amused by a master animal balloon maker. There were two fortified workshops hosted by Ron to highlight the developing flavours of our four different grape varieties. A sensory skills quiz was prepared to match various odours with their descriptions.
Thanks to all who assisted with this huge event and to everyone who attended! It was fantastic to see so many new faces and to hear that people had travelled far and wide.

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