Michael Clarke and the T20 World Cup Trophy to take on the Barossa

The cricketing great will visit Jacobs Creek as part of the ICC T20 World Cup Trophy tour with food and wine available for a morning of fun.

Pull out your best cricket whites and get ready to spend the morning with one of Australia’s greatest of the game, when Michael Clarke and the ICC T20 World Cup Trophy make a stop in the Barossa Valley.

Next Sunday, September 11 cricket fans, locals and wine lovers are invited to the home of leading Australian winemaker, Jacob’s Creek, to welcome Clarkey and the trophy for a morning of activity and the unveiling of a pop-up cricket installation that will be taking over the grounds until the T20 finals in November.

As a proud partner of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup that kicks off in October, Jacob’s Creek will host a meet and greet and merch signing with the cricket legend himself from 10am before official proceedings and a presentation of the trophy commence.

Visitors are encouraged to dress in their best whites and pack the cricket bat and ball to get the former Australian Test Cricket Captain to sign on the day.

A wine bar pouring up a selection of Mimosas and Jacob’s Creek wines will be available on the day, along with a gourmet sausage sizzle. 50% of all proceeds from the sausage sizzle will be donated to the local cricket team.

Come down to the Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre and watch Michael Clarke take to the pitch for a hit with the local Angaston Cricket Club. For cricket lovers alike, Clarkey will be sharing his insight on this year’s T20 alongside cricket writer and ICC Champion Bharat Sundaresan, and Jacob’s Creek Chief Winemaker Dan Swincer.

Inspired by the Jacob’s Creek vines, the cricket installation will be a fun, family-friendly pitch where parts will be crafted from Jacob’s Creek barrels and old vines, in an artistic first from the Barossa locals behind production company Release Creative. The installation will be open for all visitors to enjoy a hit on until the end of November.
