Grapes of Mirth - The Festival is the vision of GOM Director and Head Clown, Merrick Watts to curate the perfect line up of comedy, music, food podcasts, masterclasses, and a wine list that is world-class.

The Barossa line-up will also bring Australia’s favourite comedy podcasts to the stage with its program featuring live recordings from Myf Warhurst and Zan Rowe with their smash hit Double J podcast Bang On, Peter Helliar with his podcast You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, and Kyran Wheatley’s hilarious Wax Quizzical. Luke Heggie will also present his podcast Mid-Flight Brawl with co-host Nick Cody before they both take to the main stage.
The food line-up will feature Melissa Leong (MasterChef) and Colin Lane (Lano and Woodley), who will host a comedian’s cook off on the main stage. Ivan Aristeguieta will present the live debut of his lockdown cooking sensation About This Much. Merrick Watts will also host the ultimate BBQ masterclass as part of the festivities.
