Event description



Barossa is a region that captivates the imagination and Barossa Be Consumed is your one day, full immersion into all things Barossa!

Not just a tasting of the region’s brilliant wines, ‘Barossa. Be Consumed’ also offers you a taste of the region’s food, culture, history and character. With over 250 wines from 48+ Winemakers, plus artisan gin, local produce, live music, great coffee and new ‘Meet the Maker’ sessions, Barossa Be Consumed is an unmissable event for food and wine lovers.

Be consumed.

Held at the iconic Meat Market in North Melbourne, this historic building lends itself to all the facets of the region.

Booking Fees?

There's a small booking/processing fee that is added to your ticket before payment.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes please. As alcohol is at the event, you must be over 18 to attend. Please bring a valid form of identification with you on the day just to be sure (Passport or driving license).

Are children permitted at the event?

This is always a tough one. Whilst the answer is a non discriminatory ‘yes’, our events are often very busy, loud and a little hectic so not an ideal place for little people. We suggest getting a baby sitter and having the day off. We’ll bring the wine.

Will tickets be available on the door?

Only if there are any available. But more often than not, ‘no’ as the events sell out prior. We cap numbers to ensure everyone has a great time and it’s not too crazy as we want you coming back. We strongly suggest buying tickets prior to ensure you don’t miss out.

Is there a refund policy?

Refunds are available on all tickets up to 2 weeks prior to the event. After that date, no dice. If after that time, it’s always good to check on the event facebook pages as often people are looking to purchase ones if the event is sold out.

Do I need to purchase a general admission ticket on top of my Meet the Maker Session ticket?

Yes. Meet the Maker Sessions are an additional, 45 minute experience within the Barossa. Be Consumed event.

What is included in my Meet the Maker Session ticket?

Your Meet the Maker Session ticket gives you access to an intimate, panel session discovering 4 premium Barossa wines not available in the main event. Hosted by Melbourne's own Clare Burda, Sommelier, and winemakers, it's a chance to get a deeper understanding of Barossa, as a region, our wines, our people - and make a few new friends along the way!

I haven’t received my ticket? What do I do?

An automated email is sent upon purchasing tickets. If you don’t receive it, it could be for a couple of reasons. Firstly, check the spam folder as sometimes they get stuck there. Other times, when in a rush to purchase (!), some accidentally enter their email address incorrectly. If that’s the case, drop us an email and we’ll search and resend. But all good, you’ll be in our system.

Do I need to print the tickets.

It’s always easier, yes. But, even better is the eventbrite app which keeps them all on your phone. We’ll scan you in when you arrive.

Tasting, not drinking

We like to think of these events as a tasting, not a drinking as we want you to experience as many different wine styles on offer. Creating a safe, welcoming and non-intimidating event environment is what we’re all about so any inappropriate behaviour, of an intoxicated nature or not, that is dangerous to yourself and or others, is just not acceptable.

If we witness any of the above, we reserve the right to take appropriate action and have you removed from the venue.

I’ve got a couple of other questions, what should I do?

Easy. Drop Emily an email at and she’ll get right back to you.
