Barossa Vintage Festival logoThe original Barossa Vintage Festival was a single event – a Thanksgiving Ball to celebrate the end of harvest and the end of WWII. It was conceived by Colin Gramp of Orlando Wines and Bill Seppelt of Seppelt Wines.   Australia’s longest-running wine festival, it is held every two years and now has a week-long calendar of events including  wine workshops, heritage events and, significantly, church services. The Barossa’s Lutheran leanings reflect its German heritage.
