Grab a beret and put on your best sexy French accent—a slice of France is coming to town. South Australia’s very own Paris will be taking form in the inaugural Bonjour Barossa celebration, which is set to paint the town of Seppeltsfield red, white, and blue on Sunday, 10 June. The event will celebrate our favourite French food, wine, and activities through boutique-style market stalls with enough cheese and wine to satisfy your tastebuds. Bon appétit!
2016 marks the first year of Bonjour Barossa and will allow South Australian's to escape to the cobbled streets of Paris this winter. Seppeltsfield Winery will host the event in commemoration of the storming of Bastille and the beginning of the French Revolution four days ahead of France’s National Day, Bastille Day (14 July).
Sip, sample, and savour some of France’s most famous gourmet delights and wine. An array of charcuteries (smoked meats), pastries, desserts, breads, and baked goods will be on offer along with the French favourites of delicious crepes and smelly cheeses. The champagne will of course be flowing, and so will the grand French spirit of Bastille Day.
Aside from food and wine, the event will also showcase live Parisian Jazz music by local South Australian band The Baker Suite, live cooking demonstrations by Adelaide’s Le Cordon Bleu, Segway tours, face-painting, and much more.
Tickets bought prior to the day will cost adults only $10 each, which includes entry to the event and a complimentary wine glass. Children under 18 can gain entry for free, while a ticket purchased on the day will cost adults $15 each (don’t worry, you’ll also receive a wine glass, and with all the champagne on offer, you’ll need it).
Immerse yourself in a culture full of decadence and become a true bon vivant (classy, sexy, lush French person) at this year’s Bonjour Barossa.
