Barossa Gourmet Weekend 2010

Set your taste buds free with a weekend of indulgence in one of world's best wine regions. Each of the cellar doors taking part in this event will be serving up a fine dining experience matched with premium wines and the smooth sounds of live music. NAB Barossa Gourmet Weekend is a fantastic opportunity to indulge in food, wine and music and famous hospitality in the beautiful Barossa. Here is just a small snapshot of some fabulous events to tantalise your gourmet tastebuds!

Nothing quite starts the day like a glass of Sparkling Merlot, but you’ll need something to go with that, so head to fun loving Gibson Wines for a hearty country breakfast to stand you in good stead for the day ahead. Stay on a while, because twice cooked pork belly is a bit of a Barossa favourite and so is visiting acoustic funk bank Cousin Leonard, who will provide a great backdrop to good food and good wine in an authentic setting. Gibson Wines, Willows Road, Light Pass.

In Angaston, The Magnificent 7, Wine Guns from the West will be showcasing non cellar door brands and those whose wines are not readily available, such as Tscharke, Russell Wines, Diggers Bluff, Jamabro, David Franz, Soul Growers and Milhinch Seize the Day Wines. The tasting will be extensive but it’s still a great place to bring the kids. The lawns at family friendly restaurant SA Company Store will provide a great space to race around and face painting and crazy hair are also on offer.
