Vino Lokal by Artisans of Barossa. The story so far.

Just four months ago we decided to open a ‘place’ in the main street of Tanunda. 

We hadn’t planned on opening a wine room and wine bar. 

And the building was still under construction. 

And we didn’t have a name. 

But the will to do it, the idea of what it could be and how it would work crystallised in an instant, and we’ve charged on at a relentless pace ever since to meet our opening night deadline of January 4, 2019. 

The name Vino Lokal seemed logical. Vino means ‘wine’ where ever you go, and this is a wine place. The Spanish origins of the word tied in neatly with the origins of ‘Barossa’, and ‘Lokal’ is a German word for ‘local’. Bring them together, and you have a gentle nod to the heritage of the region, and a clear message that this place will be all about Barossa wine… hence ‘Barossa Wine Room & Bar.’

So what can you expect from a Barossa Wine Room & Bar?

The Wine Room is our re-imaging of a winery tasting bar. A shift from just wine, to wine and food, it’s about sitting down and slowing down. 

The Wine Room will operate every day from 11-5 and offer over 50 Barossa wines on tasting from our Artisan winemakers – John Duval Wines, Spinifex, Schwarz Wine Company, Hobbs of Barossa Ranges and Sons of Eden. Wines will be available in flights of four/ six/ or eight tasting pours and will be accompanied by 4 bite sized selections from our wine bar menu. 

The Wine Bar will open from 11am - 8pm Monday to Thursday, 11am – 10pm on Friday and Saturday and from 11am – 6pm on Sunday. Matching our Wine Room program, we’ll offer a similarly extravagant selection of ‘lokal’ wines by the glass, carafe and by the bottle. Grower Champagne by the glass will also be in the mix, as will a few featured imports from familiar places and friends around the world. The Wine Bar will offer a menu of 10-12 small plate designed by our Chef Ryan Edwards to match perfectly with a glass of wine.

As for beer? Yes, we’ll have one. Gin and tonics? Maybe not. Possibly. Probably. Not sure. That’s a work in progress. Can you book a tasting in the Wine Room? Of course – drop an email to wineroom@vinolokal.com and we’ll lock it in. Can I book a seat or table in the Wine Bar? Unfortunately, because we’re a Wine Bar and not a restaurant, that won’t be an option. But by all means, give us a call on 8563 3935 before you head out the door and we’ll let you know the lay of the land.

We’ll keep you updated with news as we get closer to opening day. Make sure to stay in touch with the latest news via Facebook and Instagram – head to @vinolokal

 

Cheers from the team from Vino Lokal & Artisans of Barossa
