When we first heard that the Barossa Valley and Paris were meeting in a new festival, we knew it was a match made in heaven. That was years ago, and today, Barossa Winery Seppeltsfied has made Bonjour Barossa a highly anticipated staple of the yearly roster of festivals.
On July 7, the iconic Seppeltsfield Village will be transformed into a unique and fabulous festival, showcasing SA’s most tastebud-tingling French-inspired delicacies. Local SA artisans in attendance include Dough, Coffee + Crepe, Chocolique, Barossa Valley Cheese Company, The Oyster Bar, Barossa Coffee Roasters, Barossa Valley Ice-cream and Owen Andrews. Then of course, there’s the alcohol – guests will enjoy Seppeltsfield wine and Champagne by Billecart.
The Seppeltsfield Village is perhaps the Barossa’s best kept secret. It’s a wine, food and arts hub, open for visitors year round. For Bonjour Barossa, it will undergo a French transformation.
Bonjour Barossa is also presenting a number of masterclasses, including Vasse Virgin at Seppeltsfield (perfumery masterclass), Billecart (champagne masterclass), FINO Seppeltsfield (sourdough masterclass) and Barossa Valley Cheese Co. masterclass.
If you’re somewhat arty, there’s the opportunity to make like Van Gogh, with ‘Paint, Sip, Create’ experiences on offer by Adelaide’s Studio Vino (yes – you drink wine and paint). Of course, if you’re more the sitting, sipping, savouring type, you’ll be able to do that to the Parisian Jazz sounds of Louise Blackwell and the French Set.
A child-friendly play zone will also be available to families looking to bring the little ones, with face painting, cupcake decorating and puppet shows.
Tickets for Bonjour Barossa at Seppeltsfield are $20, they include a wine glass you can keep. Children can get in for $10. We recommend pre-purchasing tickets here. For more information, head to Seppeltsfield’s website here.
