We’re thrilled to have Jalna as a Gold Sponsor across all our events this season. 
Jalna and Barefoot Cinema is a match made in heaven as, like us, they have a passion for all things natural. Jalna is a third-generation Australian owned family business, that has not wavered from its founding principles of making pot-set yoghurt the traditional way. Their new Double Cream Yoghurts are the creamiest, silkiest, most decadent yoghurt with real fruit on the bottom. And because Jalna yoghurts are naturally pot-set without additives, preservatives, or anything artificial, there really is nothing quite as pure and delicious.

You’ll be sure to see lots of those little pots of purity at Barefoot Cinema this summer! Make sure you treat yourself to one.
We’re delighted to have Matso's Brewery as one of our alcohol partners at Barefoot Cinema this season. Matso’s hails from the tropics of Australia, and has a range of yummy drinks to help you Escape the Ordinary. Exactly what suits a night at Barefoot!

Try their fun, fruity, refreshing and flavour-filled beers this Summer if you’re looking for something a little different to normal beer or ciders. They’re best known for their Ginger Beer and Mango Beer, plus we’ll also have the NEW Matso’s Hard Lemon available– a low sugar, zesty alcoholic lemonade made from real Aussie lemons.

Something you may not know, is that the Matso’s range makes great cocktails when paired with spirits or apertifs, so search the hashtag #MatsosMix on Instagram for more.

To learn more about Matso's, head to their Instagram (@matsosbeer) or website, and make sure you try out their great beverages at Barefoot Cinema - you might even catch them doing a sampling bar on-site, if you're lucky! 😉
It wouldn’t be a real summer event without the quintessential summer drink, Aperol Spritz, and we’re delighted to have Aperol as part of our events this summer!  Sunny, lively and perfect for sharing with friends, the Aperol Spritz will be available to Barefooters across the season at all locations with its bright orange colour and zesty, bittersweet taste. Make sure you plan your Barefoot date to enjoy Aperol’s perfectly balanced combination of oranges, herbs and roots; a secret recipe which has remained unchanged since it was created in 1919.
 
Classically Italian, an Aperol Spritz is the most popular drink of choice for Aperitivo, with over 1 million served per day in Italy alone! Refreshing and citrusy, it will bring an element of true Italian style to any occasion. Aperol Spritz: come together and enjoy each other’s company.  DRINK RESPONSIBLY
We’re thrilled to have Babo Wines as our wine partner this summer! In 2009 Babo Wines was born, joining Australian winemaker duo (and best mates since school) Justin Bubb and Luke Saturno. Justin’s expertise in Italian winemaking comes from almost a decade working at globally recognised wineries in Tuscany and Piedmont, while Luke gained extensive experience working in senior wine marketing roles in London. Together, their mission has been to consistently make great quality wine in the most famous regions of Italy and bring it back to Australia, so more Aussies can fall in love with Italian wine like they have.
 
With Babo, the team aims to produce approachable wines that stylistically represent the regions they love. They want to shake any stuffy or old-fashioned stereotypes of Italian wine by producing contemporary styles that suit the wine-savvy palates of Australians.

We think they’ve been successful, and we know you’ll think so too when you opt for a glass of Babo Wine at the Barefoot Bar. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the Babo Wines team who are sure to be hosting tastings of their delicious drop at select Barefoot Cinema screenings across the season!
Wallaby Water is Australia’s most recycled and most recyclable packaged water alternative.

Aluminium is Australia's highest recycled beverage container.
