What did you enjoy about the Ambassador’s programme?

There were many things I enjoyed about the programme. First of all it gave me plenty of new experiences and opportunities, such as a behind the scenes tour of Apex Bakery and Seppeltsfield winery as playing Kegel for the first time. 

Another thing I enjoyed was meeting heaps of new people and learning about their connections and love for the Barossa.

What have you learnt over this experience?

I have learnt during this experience that the vintage festival is way larger than it seems. So much work and preparation goes into hosting such a marvellous event.

Why should other people get involved in the Ambassador’s programme?

Other people should get involved because it is such a great way to learn about the Barossa and the Barossa community. It gives you so many opportunities you may not get outside of the programme as well.

What was a stand-out memory for you over the programme?

A stand out memory for me would be having the opportunity to be part of the declaration of vintage church service. It was such a unique experience that I’ve never been a part of.
