Spring Garden to Plate Tasting Menu presented by Jacob’s Creek
The South Australian icon that is Jacob’s Creek has created a tasting menu that showcases the premium, locally sourced food that is a big part of the Barossa. Enjoy the seasonal ingredients accompanied by a glass of wine from their limited release range.
Bud Burst presented by Kaesler Wines

If You’re Game Feast and Fire presented by Lyndoch Hill & Barossa Chateau
The title says it all. The night will start with a traditional fire ceremony hosted by Aboriginal Elder Yundamara, then let the feast begin! Local food native to our country will be cooked on the coals as you listen to live music while sipping on Creed wines and local craft beers. Then, dance the night away.
The Freaking Pig At Musque presented by Rieslingfreak
Riesling winemaker John Hughes has teamed up with chef Stuart Oldfield to create a pork menu that celebrates the flavours of Rieslingfreak. With Hughes’ numbered range of Rieslings telling the tale of their region and style, you can’t go wrong with the blend of pork matched with Rieslingfreak.
