Yalumba celebrates their proud partnership with Australia’s premier eating and drinking festival, Tasting Australia for 2023. This is the fourth year the Barossa winery will partner with the festival, showcasing the best of South Australian wine and cuisine.
The winery will bring Melbourne restaurant Chin Chin back to the Barossa following their extremely successful debut earlier this year.
On 6 and 7 May, Yalumba will be converted into an exciting pop-up restaurant for Chin Chin Executive Chef Benjamin Cooper to share Chin Chin’s famous South East Asian cuisine alongside Yalumba Barossa wines.
In addition, Yalumba Clocktower lawns will be transformed into Chin Chin’s GoGo bar, where guests can settle in for an afternoon of street food, Barossa contemporary art, Barossa wine and culture over the weekend.
Yalumba’s sixth generation Jessica Hill-Smith is excited about Tasting Australia’s program for 2023.
“We are incredibly proud to partner with Tasting Australia again in 2023,” said Hill-Smith.
“This event goes from strength to strength, and the opportunity to have Benjamin and his team from Chin Chin here with us again, will be a highlight of the Festival. To have the chance to experience some of Chin Chin’s famous dishes in the Barossa at Yalumba is a real treat for locals and those visiting the region.”
As a partner of Tasting Australia, Yalumba will be showcased across the 10 day culinary program, including a Town Square Kitchen dinner Smoked on Friday 29 April and numerous Town Square Masterclasses held in Adelaide’s Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga.
“The Yalumba Wine Bar will be in the Town Square again, so people can pop in and enjoy a glass of Yalumba during the festival,” said Hill-Smith.

Graze away on the Yalumba GoGo Lawn, settle in, stay awhile and enjoy delicious bar snacks by Chin Chin while sipping on a glass of Yalumba wine.
Each ticket includes a selection of Chin Chin bar snacks, including Curry Spiced Potato Gems, Glazed Wings, Larb Meatball Sub or a Roti Apple Pie with Nutella, with a glass of Yalumba in a Riedel glass to keep. Over the two days, guests are invited to set their own itineraries and enjoy food, drinks and entertainment on the Yalumba lawns in front of the iconic clocktower building.
The original GoGo Bar is hidden beneath Melbourne’s Chin Chin and is worthy of a visit in its own right. This unique collaboration marks Chin Chin’s second pop-up at Yalumba – one of the Barossa’s most revered destinations.
