“Barossa vignerons have brought together an incredible collection that represent some of the most rare  and distinguished wines in Australia. It seemed only fitting to provide investors and collectors the  opportunity to enjoy the Barossa Wine Auction with unmatched hospitality and attention to detail”, says James March, CEO Barossa Grape & Wine Association. 

This year’s event offers different itineraries including indulgent accommodation at Adelaide’s Eos by SkyCity and The Louise, Barossa, chauffeur service, privileged access to the Barossa Live Auction VIP tasting and more. 

But with travel restrictions and Australia’s border closure, the on-site events will cater largely to domestic buyers.

Both the Barossa and Sydney Live Auctions will be open for bidding from 2 April 2021 at langtons.com.au. On Friday 16 April 2021 at 10.30am the Barossa Live
Auction bidding will move from online to live in the room at Chateau Tanunda where the final bidding takes place under the direction of the auctioneer, Andrew Caillard MW.
