All change as the Barossa gets a new wine destination

The Artisans of the Barossa are shutting up shop at their Vine Vale cellar door and opening a new wine room and bar in central Tanunda.

The change happens on December 31, and the new destination will be known as Vino Lokal.

Calabria Family Wines, expanding their operations from the Riverina, will move into the former Artisans space (below), where they will join Harvest Kitchen.


Then, in April, construction will begin on the eventual new home of Artisans of Barossa, which will be located at Kroemer’s Crossing at the top end of Tanunda.

That operation is scheduled to open in early 2020, and Vino Lokal and Artisans of Barossa will then operate in tandem offering two different ways of enjoying Barossa wine and food.

The first set of new doors to open for Artisans will be at 64 Murray Street, Tanunda (below), in a building once known as Roger’s Shoe Store and then for a time as Nosh.


Vino Lokal is being described as "a melting pot of ideas, opportunities and possibilities".

It will feature Barossa wine along with some imports, as well as being somewhere to snack and graze from a compact wine bar-style menu.

The doors at Vino Lokal will be open 11am-8pm Monday to Thursday, and 11am-10pm on Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be an 11am-6pm affair.

There will be over 50 Barossa wines by the glass and plenty more by the bottle. Food will be prepared by Ryan Edwards, formerly of Appellation.
