2019 Burning of the Barrel

THE GLANDORE BURNING OF THE BARREL MADE THE TOP 50 WINE EXPERIENCES IN THE WORLD!

The Burning of the Barrel has quickly turned into an icon event of the Hunter Valley Food & Wine Festival and in 2018 was named amongst Gourmet Wine Travelers Top 50 Worldwide Wine Experiences!

It is an absolutely spectacular evening where, in a nutshell, we build a bloody enormous fire, drink some very tasty wines, dine on some fantastic food, listen to some great music and have quite possibly the best night of the year in the Hunter Valley!
