Barossa Slow 2009

Barossa Slow, 1-4 October 2009

The Barossa has long been known as a food haven, a place where the evolution of the ‘waste not want not’ principle has simmered into an industry in its own right.

Welcome to 2009 Barossa Slow which proudly highlights the traditions and transitions of the region's rich food culture. Participants in this event have a rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the very heart of these customs, to meet the makers and savour the exciting elements contributed by insightful newcomers.

Share meals with local artisans, take tours with primary producers, get into the minds of those who exemplify small-scale production, meet the locals and make new friends with like-minded food lovers. Share exquisite wine and discuss the intricacies of long held beliefs and time-honoured rituals.

This is how we do things here - slowly but surely, lovingly and carefully. It's about mixing tradition with the now, progressing but withholding, being commercially viable but maintaining integrity. Bringing it back, moving it forward. Keeping it real. Slowing us down.

Highlights include:
• The Long Table Dinner – everyone will gather for a warm Barossa welcome with great food, wine and conversation
• The Producers Table – a behind the scenes look at the food artisans of the Barossa
• Torbreck Terroir – Take a walk in Torbreck Winemaker Dave Powell’s world of terroir
• The Cellar Table - Intimate dinners around the Barossa with a chef or a winemaker

Full details of the event are available here.
