Barossa Valley has a ton of big name producers and a seriously diverse selection of cellar doors to choose from. But what if you’re looking for the boutique producers? The up and coming winemakers? Or those all so elusive winemaker side project labels? Or what if you’re just too overwhelmed with all of the options and want to hit one killer spot? Maybe grab some food too? Enter Vino Lokal.
Vino Lokal is a super dope wine bar with something on offer for everyone. This is the perfect spot for both a fun group gathering and for a more laidback or intimate get together for two. The vibe is sort of retro chic and the tasting list is extensive, well thought out, and representative of Barossa Valley. Plus, there’s food from a hatted chef! I seriously wanted to try everything on Vino Lokal’s menu.
The wines at Vino Lokal are all from local artisan winemakers including John Duval Wines, Hobbs of Barossa Ranges, Spinifex Wines, Schwarz Wine Company, and Sons of Eden. Typically, Vino Lokal has over 50 wines on offer. You can opt to create your own wine flight or for wines by the glass or bottle. I absolutely loved the curated flights they have available. Each of Vino Lokal’s flights is presented with descriptive cards covering the wine’s tasting notes and producer information. You’re even invited to take the cards home with you to remember what you tasted. We popped into Vino Lokal for a wine flight, but I would happily go for lunch or dinner as the menu looked incredible. Be sure to stop at this fun local hang on your next visit to Barossa Valley! Check out Vino Lokal’s website for more information on the winemakers, menus, and current tasting list.
