The Barossa culture has evolved based on the lifestyle of its people and environment of the beautiful and bountiful region. It is maintained by many great characters that define the Barossa, its food, wine and hospitality.
The Barossa culture is a vibrant blend of fresh ideas that pay homage to a food and wine tradition spanning seven generations.
You see examples of the culture when a colourful collection of winemakers get-together at the Tanunda Kegelbahn (home of the Tanunda Kegel Club, founded in 1858) for a game of traditional nine-pin bowling; at the agricultural shows where the locals put forward their best fresh produce in a friendly, but very competitive environment; and when the region gets together to put on great events like the Gourmet Weekend and Vintage Festival.
The Barossa’s food, wine and lifestyle are elements of the community that people are passionate about and happy to share. Today Barossa people still get together for ‘a schluck and a schnitte’ (which is Barossa Deutsch for some time set aside share some news or gossip, a glass of wine and a bite to eat).
