Barossa Generations Lunch
2014 Barossa Generations Lunch
The 2014 Barossa Generations Lunch is on Friday 5 December. More information in our Events Calendar: barossa.com/events/barossa-generations-lunch
The theme of this year's lunch is “Who do you think you are Barossa? Who are you going to be?”
The Barossa Grape & Wine Association is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) from local filmmakers to contribute, on a voluntary basis, to an exciting, intergenerational multimedia project entitled “Who do you think you are Barossa? Who are you going to be?”
The project aims to produce a series of short films capturing the essence of “Who do you think you are Barossa? Who are you going to be?” The films will be used to promote the heritage and sense of community in the Barossa through a number of online platforms. Edited forms of the films may be shown at the Barossa Generations Lunch in December 2014.
2013 Barossa Generations Lunch
The Barossa community came together on Wednesday 4 December to celebrate the 6th Barossa Generations Lunch.
This year the event was held at the Tanunda Show Hall – a venue with fond memories for many Barossans.
250 Guests enjoyed canapés prepared by four Barossan chefs: Owen Andrews, Ryan Edwards, Scott Liddell and Mark McNamara, followed by lunch, the launch of the Barons Food Project and an address by Barossa Grape & Wine Association CEO James March.
The Barons of Barossa Food Project chronicles Barossan food culture and history. The video project features Mark McNamara and Callum Hann with 6 Barossan, each known for a particular Barossan food speciality – such as Rote Grutze . The project comprises 6 x ten minute episodes and will be distributed to local schools and community groups in 2014.
BGWA CEO James March inspired many with his personalised account of the Barossa.
“My proposition to consider at this year’s gathering is that there is always a value in coming together as a community. Sometimes it’s as simple as just downing tools and breaking bread that can help rekindle that sense of perspective, of remembering that the Barossa is an extraordinary place, where extraordinary things happen.”
