Torbreck Hillside Vineyard Lunch
12.00pm - 4.00pm
Barossa’s Torbreck beckons for a leisurely lunch surrounded by ancient vines.
You’ll be hosted at the historic Hillside vineyard near Lyndoch. It was established by the Springbett family in 1849 and is home to one of the region’s oldest wineries and vineyard estates.
Feast on a three-course menu in the Stone Barn created using fresh produce grown on the property while the Torbreck team takes you through the estate’s rich winemaking history. A selection of Torbreck wines will accompany lunch.
The property’s first vines – planted in 1850 – were shiraz and grenache. By 1860 two generations of the Springbett family had built a small winery, which became only the second established in the region. Within a decade the property was a fully operational winery and cellar producing single estate wines, among the first of its kind in the Barossa. Today its old vineyards supply grapes for a range of Torbreck’s premium wines.
This is a rare chance to explore one of the region’s most historic winemaking landmarks and savour a long lunch in the process.
