The rescheduled 2021 Barossa Winterfest is taking place this Sunday at Coulthard House after a number of cancellations due to extreme weather and South Australia’s snap lockdown.
From 10 – 3 on Sunday 29 August visitors will be able to wander the atmospheric winter wonderland of Coulthard House, enjoying a variety of wintery stalls that will include foodie feasts, warming red wines, and that old winter classic, hot mulled wine as well as a crackling fire to heat up even the chilliest of winter days.
With vast, manicured lawns and its grand homestead, the grounds of Coulthard House, built in 1854, will be home to the first ever Barossa Winterfest this year, sure to delight visitors with an array of local food vendors and of course – mulled wine from the plethora of world-class vineyards that call Barossa home.
The Festival’s organisers have expressed their excitement about this year’s event and hope that it will be met with a positive reception by visitors, in order to grow its offerings each year, with plans for a full-sized ice skating rink in the works.
Proving that summer wine tours aren’t the only time to visit this stunning region of South Australia, the inaugural Barossa Winterfest promises a free day out for all the family (including pets!) with live music, games and covered seating around a cosy fire, so you can safely duck under if the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Barossa Winterfest is one of a number of magical wintery wonderlands you can visit in Adelaide during the coming colder months, with Winter Reds, Tasting Australia, Illuminate Adelaide, the Winter Village and the Alpine Winter Festival offering a range days out for foodies, wine-lovers and ice-skating fanatics alike.
The festival adds to Adelaide’s busy calendar, further confirming South Australia’s stellar reputation as the Festival State and its recent appointment as the most liveable city in the world!
