The Barossa - Gourmet Weekend

As you may know, we went to the Barossa Valley Gourmet weekend recently and I wanted to share some photos of our trip.

We started with a glass of Barossa wine at Bibu in Tanunda.

 Then armed with a map of the Barossa, we headed for the wineries.

Rockford would have to be one of my favourites.

Look at this beautiful cottage where they do the wine tasting.

and boy to they have some good wines.

Then it was off to Peter Lehmann.  There is a small creek and beautiful green lawn out the front where they host A Day on The Green.

We did a tour of the historic Seppletsfield Vineyard.  These are barrels of 100 year old port.

Of course we had to see Penfolds, the home of Grange.

and Elderton is just across the road, so why not?

We even did one of the big ones.

We had a degustation delight at Hentley Farm.  Something like 7 dishes with matching wines.

The Barossa is also home to Angus Park, famous for it's dried fruits.

and my husband had some delicious Maggie Beer ice-cream.

The Barossa was truly an amazing experience, and I strongly encourage you to go see and experience it for yourself.  Remember ....

so if you find yourself in the Barossa and want to taste a premium red wine but don't quite have $100 to shell out (who does?), then try the Seize the Day Shiraz or Cabernet  for around $30.  In my humble opinion, it's one of the best Barossa red's I've had.  (If you live in Brisbane, you might be able to get it at the Breakfast Creek Hotel).


  1. food and wine heaven! looks like a great trip you had.
    we enjoyed our visit there too.

  2. Looks like a lovely weekend, always dream of doing something like this! Unfortunately neither hubby or I are wine drinkers, I would just have to go for that delightful looking food!

    My brother has been collecting Grange (Hermitage) since he left high school - he has quite an extensive collection (when he's not drinking it!)
