Barossa wine showcase to hit Sydney and Melbourne

Several of the leading winemakers from the Barossa are heading for Melbourne and Sydney to show off their wares at Barossa.Be Consumed this July.

The Barossa Grape & Wine Association, in partnership with Lever (Revel’s event activation arm), will hold two one-day events to bring big city wine lovers up to date with the latest from the region.

For the second season of Barossa.Be Consumed, 44 wineries will be bringing the character and stories behind their wines to each event, including former Young Gun of Wine finalist Michael Papps from Yelland and Papps, historic Seppeltsfield and 2017 Jimmy Watson winner Turkey Flat Vineyards.

Guests will have the chance to extend the Barossa experience to their own homes after the event thanks to the innovative Sip, Pick, Pack & Ship service.

This allows consumers to directly purchase wine from producers on the day of the event and have it shipped straight to their front door.

The crew from Harvest Kitchen will serve up flavoursome dishes including spice-fried free-range chicken with ancient grain salad, along with treats from Barossa Cheese.

Local producers will feature at the Barossa Maker’s Table showcasing iconic dishes using home-grown goods from around the region. The event will also feature tastings with local distillers Seppeltsfield Road Distillers and Barossa Distilling Company, along with Barossa Valley Cider Co.

"We are very excited to be on the road with Barossa.Be Consumed," said Yelland and Papps winemaker Michael Papps. "It’s an opportunity for us to talk to wine lovers about our region and what makes it so unique.”

General admission tickets are $65 excluding booking fee, which includes a Plumm wine glass to taste from and take home, all wine tasting and various food and drink samples.
