The gorgeous Barossa Valley has been voted Australia’s favourite wine region in 2016. Here are some ways to enjoy a trip to the Barossa valley in South Australia – suggested by ‘escape travel’
With more than 70 cellar doors, 150 wineries and approximately 750 grape growers in the region, a trip to some cellar doors is a must and we recommend a visit to Barossa’s most famous winery Jacobs Creek. Others to add to your journey are Seppeltsfield, Rockford and the Artisans of Barossa. Also Hentley, Yalumba and Yelland Papps. Remember it’s all about the shiraz in the Barossa (and it’s all about the Riesling at Clare Valley – just 2 hours from Adelaide)
Each Saturday you will find the Barossa Farmers Markets in the Vintners Sheds, Angaston. Here you will find everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, organic olive oils, pickles, dukkah and more, a perfect accompaniment to a glass of Barossa Wine.
The Lyndoch Lavender Farm and Café features 90 varieties of lavender growing in beautiful rural surroundings. The shop is selling lavender products such as shampoo, lavender honey and essential oils, while the café is serving gourmet treats such as lavender bread, ice-cream and scones.
You can also admire the Barossa from the air by taking a hot-ai ballon flight with Balloon Adventures, with a one-hour flight departing from Tanunda and concluding with a gourmet champagne breakfast at Langmeil Winery.
A bite to eat can also include the award winning Hentley Farm, plus Harvest Kitchen and Ferment Asian.
