Meet your favourite Winemaker

2011 Barossa Vintage Festival

This year, 26 of the Barossa’s leading winemakers will host the bi-annual Legends behind the Barrel – one of the many spectacular events presented at the 2011 Barossa Vintage Festival.

2005 saw the introduction of ‘Legends behind the Barrel’ as a strong wine focussed event in the Barossa Vintage Festival calendar. Since then, Legends has grown into an essential ‘must-attend” event and 2011 promises to be no exception.

Wine lovers will experience an afternoon immersed among some of Barossa’s pre-eminent producers, from small boutique wineries to the iconic Australian wine brands, showcased together in the one venue.

This is not only an exclusive chance to develop sensory skills by tasting and comparing both barrel and current release wines, but also a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with many of Barossa’s leading winemakers, the ‘Legends’ and hear their stories as well as sample previously unreleased wines — direct from the barrels.

The response from the local winemaking community to be part of this event has again been phenomenal and besides the large well-known producers, 2011 has also attracted a number of smaller wineries who as yet have not established cellar door facilities. Therefore, this is a rare opportunity to sample up and coming producers.

Wineries involved in the 2011 Legends behind the Barrel include:

Barossa Valley Estate, Bethany Wines, Cirillo Estate Wines, Chateau Tanunda,Dutschke Wines,Eden Hall, Glenburn Estate, Hart of the Barossa,Head Wines, Jacob’s Creek, John Duval Wines, Kaesler Wines, Liebicwein, McLean’s Farm, Murray Street Vineyards, Penfolds Wines, Peter Lehmann Wines, Rolf Binder Wines, Saltram Wine Estate,Schild Estate,Seppeltsfield, St Hallett Wines, Tait Wines, Wolf Blass Wines, Yalumba Wines, Yelland & Papps

The ‘Legends behind the Barrel’, will be a part of the 2011 Barossa Vintage Festival impressive line-up and will be held at Barossa Valley Estate, on Thursday 28th April 2011

An exceptional opportunity no wine lover should miss.
