THE Barons of the Barossa are looking for a further $2 million to complete the community project known as the Barossa Cellar. The project foresees an independent, globally recognised and respected regional wine museum and the Barons already have a significant collection of fine wines from the Barossa and Eden valleys, all donated by local wineries. “Not only will the Barossa Cellar be a stunning building in which to cellar and showcase this magnificent regional wine collection, but the Barossa Grape & Wine Association (BGWA) has signed a long-term agreement to be the sole tenant of the building,” said Baron Louisa Rose from Yalumba. “This will ensure the Barossa Cellar is a living, breathing building, with a real sense of activity and purpose at the heart of the Barossa grape and wine community. At the Barossa Cellar, the Barossa wine community will be able to showcase and educate discerning wine lovers from all over the world about the intricacies of Barossa wine.” Rose says fund raising is now under way to source the remaining funds. Donations can be made online or by contacting the Barossa Cellar at info@thebarossacellar.com.au.
