Barossa Valley – wining and dining

Barossa Valley, easy to photograph, easy to drink, easy to love!

We had quite a few reasons to be so excited getting to this part of the world. Not only had we won our Discovery Parks accommodation but we were getting closer east to home.

We have many good memories of the area from previous visits as well as family we love to see in nearby Adelaide. Helen and Daryl kindly came up for a lunch with us.

They know the area so well we were able to sit back and enjoy the day knowing we were going to see and learn something new for sure. Highlights included our pub lunch and a spectacular view from Menglers Hill Lookout.

We managed to sneak into Pindarie Wines. We had been here before two years previously and love both the wines and the cellar door.

As we usually do, we tried to go to some vineyards that we didn’t know so well. We are rarely disappointed with this tactic and found ourselves at Bethany Wines, Yalumba and Turkey Flat Wines.

Our other not so tactical tactic is to invariably buy plenty from each. So we were well loaded by the end of the day!

We decided to end our trip with one last supper. Kaz found a place only a short walk up the road called Musque Food & Wine.

From the moment we walked in we knew this would be a very special meal. The vibe was casual and friendly and the staff were very welcoming. Kaz couldn’t resist taking some foodie shots as it was so delicious.

Of course we walked there for a reason… matching wines to go with each course! What a great night. Now onwards home to reality.
