The story behind 1918

The Great War was drawing to a close when Friedrich Carl Gottleib Wallent put the finishing touches to his fine home in Murray Street, by chiseling the date in the foundation stone by the front door. His son Morris 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 and generous place where Barossa winemakers could entertain their guests and visitors could relax after a hard day’s wine tasting.

In 1998 Tanya and Sid King visited 1918 as guests and said “when we get our own place it would be great to do something like this”, 17 years later, in 2015 the opportunity arose for The King Family to be the new custodians of this fine home of Barossa Hospitality.

They are passionate about serving fresh, seasonally-inspired cuisine, accompanied by carefully selected wines from the Barossa’s best and iconic Australian and International wineries – but guests are also welcome to bring their own special bottle. What you’ll also find is a youthful passion and buzz, modern Australian tastes and flavours that are borrowed from Asia and the Middle East, and a genuine willingness to please.

We used to have a date night ritual; open 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' to a random page, 1 person shop's the ingredients, while the other put's the kids to bed. Then we'd open a bottle of wine and cook together.
