Wine flights are served with savoury or sweet food prepared by local chef Leon.?All food is inspired from old Barossa cookbooks like Grandma used to make.

Grape stomping, street parade, scarecrows, chocolate and wine?indulgence were just some of the variety of activities Liebichwein were involved with over?the five days of the Barossa Vintage Festival?held in April 2015.
Cellar Door was run off its feet with people booking in for the Fortified and Chocolate Experience. Visitors enjoyed a journey of flavour?through four varieties of premium fortified wines ranging from two to twenty years old. Wines were matched to four homemade chocolate truffles. A rare treat!
Once again we?entered a float in the?famous Barossa Festival Parade, the?longest street parade in the southern hemisphere.?Our daughter Briony and son-in-law Damian proudly dressed?the winery float?in a ‘Classic Old Barossa’ theme complete with scarecrow (Grandpa “Gus” Braunack) and classic 1960’s beach buggy.

Grape juice was flying as the iconic grape treading event returned for its biennial appearance at the?Festival. Young and old climbed into the bins and eagerly stomped the grapes.?Liebichwein have proudly sponsored this event for 10 years.?Ron is now converting the well-stomped Grenache juice into a smooth young Tawny.

Requests have been flowing in to host wine clubs and local sporting clubs for specialised private tastings in the barrel shed. The rare aged fortifieds are star attractions! Ron really enjoys the chance to?talk to consumers and show off his range of wines. He is happy to travel to where you are, should you wish to hold a tasting at work, a special function or a fundraiser event. In May we hosted a group of 30 people for an informal fortified workshop. Another special tasting is booked in August when we will travel to Western Victoria to provide a?taste of Liebichwein for the residents of the Tabor area.
