Be consumed by the rich flavours of the Barossa.
Explore the fusion of new and old in one of the country’s first and foremost wine regions.
Start at one of the region’s traditional favourites, Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop. Wander through her pantry of artisan wares, grab a picnic basket and enjoy the view of the lake. After dinner at FermentAsian in nearby Tanunda, prepare for a full day of activity.
One thing to not miss out on is a visit to the award-winning Hentley Farm Restaurant. With head chef Lachlan Colwill at the helm, you'll connect with the vineyard, the wines, the produce and the Barossa in a way you never thought possible. Take in the picturesque and historic Hentley Farm and immerse yourself in the daily life of the chefs and winemakers that live and breathe the Barossan lifestyle.
If you're spending a Saturday in the area, start with the Barossa Farmers Market and sample the bounty of local producers, or tread the same path as the pioneers who settled the region with the Butcher, Baker, Winemaker Trail. Sample olive oil, local cheeses, dried fruit and smoked meats – and wash it down with a glass of spicy red wine.
Pack a picnic from your morning’s culinary adventure and traverse the stunning local landscape of the Barossa to Eden Valley and Mount Edelstone, tasting the wines from the vineyards along the way. Finish your day with a tasting at Henschke Family Wines or an exclusive Hutton Vale Farm experience (by appointment only).
To end your long weekend in foodie paradise, join Tasting Australia Ambassador Sharon Romeo at FINO Seppeltsfield for a meal created with the freshest of local fare.
