A Winter Wine Event - watch this space!

This blog entry is to give you advance notice of a special event that will be happening in the Barossa on the last weekend in June. Some of you may be planning to visit the Barossa this winter (what better time for a Barossa Shiraz??) so if you are, please make a note in your diary so that you may attend a very exciting and indeed enticing new event.

The Barossa Wine and Tourism Association has come up with a new concept called Barossa At Home. The idea is for wineries to open their homes to limited numbers of guests (ten per winery) for a personalised evening of Barossa food and wines. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and speak with the people behind the wines. In our case, you will be dining with the three winemakers from the three wineries involved.

We are planning on having a combined dinner party at Karra Yerta with two of our three Collective offsiders: Gumpara Wines and Kurtz Family Vineyards.
At this stage, and it is early days, we are looking at having three tables of nine guests with one of the winemakers at each table (we are allowed to have more guests as there are three wineries joining up for the event). A delicious home-cooked four-course feast will accompany our splendid range of wines and any wines that we produce that are not on the menu (food and wine matched) will be available for tasting on the night.

Please email me if you would like to be kept up to date with this event. I will also post information on this blog as it is finalised.
