Held over five exciting days, the program showcases over 90 events curated specifically for the Festival. There are old favourites like the Wine Auction, Ziegnmarket, Long Table Lunches, Town Days and the Scarecrow Trail, but the 2017 program has been bolstered by marquee events including the Chook Shed Social Club, Silver Raven Festival, Feast Folk and Fossick at Lyndoch and a 33km hill climbing trail run through beautiful Riesling country.
Peter Lehmann Wines will be taking its own slant on festivities with the help of COAL restaurant to showcase Barossan produce, wine and musical talent with the stunning grounds of the Peter Lehmann winery providing a spectacular backdrop.
