1918 Bistro & Grill is set in a 100 year old Barossa stone home.

The Great War was drawing to a close when Frederick Carl Gottleib Wallent put the finishing touches to his family home by chiselling the date in the foundation stone by the front door.

His son, Maurice Wallent, later became the mayor of Tanunda and took over the family home.

More than 70 years later in 1992, an enterprising group of locals turned the proud Wallent home into the Barossa's first bistro grill - a friendly place where Barossa winemakers could entertain their guests and visitors could relax after a hard day's wine tasting.

The owners’ reverence for the building’s history and that of Barossa Valley food and wine seeps into every aspect of their offering.

On frosty winter evenings red gum logs still splutter in the original open fireplaces.

The SA History Festival 1918 Centennial Taste Menu offers dishes inspired by 100 year old Barossan Recipes.
