Declaration of Vintage

15 February 2015, 11:00am-12:30pm

Location: Tanunda

As is tradition, The Barons of Barossa will declare 2015 Vintage on February 15 in Tanunda.

From inception the Barons of Barossa have always given significance to the annual grape harvest and its importance to the Barossa community. Over the last 38 years the annual recognition of the harvest has become the Declaration of Vintage and is always held on the third Sunday of February.

The event is unique in Australia and not only declares the start of vintage but also gives the vintage forecast and announces the Winemaker of the Year, Vigneron of the Year and the BGWA Services to the Industry Award.
