The Barossa with all its springtime glory of vibrant canola crops and budburst vineyards will once again provide the perfect backdrop to the Barossa Gourmet Weekend.
Hosted from September 6-8, the annual event is a chance for the public to indulge in some of the region's finest wine, food and entertainment experiences.
The three-day Barossa celebration invites the public to discover something new with 28 registered events, including 13 Gourmet Trail events, with wines as the ultimate heroes.
The official guide is out now and there's a host of feast for the senses to discover, from generous breakfasts of sweet and savoury favourites and wine masterclasses, to comedy acts in the vines and indulgent spring dinners and long lunches.
It's the perfect platform for wine enthusiasts, culinary lovers and families wanting to discover or rediscover the region.
The public can also choose from exclusive, intimate, ticketed events that provide a front stage pass to some of the best wine and food experiences on offer, or hit the Gourmet Trail and travel around the region to soak up the atmosphere across different venues.
