TITLE: Red, Red Wine.
IN SHORT: The Adelaide Hills and The Barossa Valley. Sorry that was probably a bit too short.
Together we left the city bound for Mt. Lofty to check out the view. Numb, we continued onto Hahndorf where we explored the various specialty shops that line Main Street of Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement. As it had reached a more appropriate hour we stopped in at a couple of wineries, one of which I found ‘positively’ frustrating; I was hard pressed to find a wine that I didn’t like!
Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop was next on our agenda, here we watched a cooking demonstration and enjoyed a picnic lunch overlooking the lake, o’ so full! Not the lake, my stomach. Slow to move but back on the road we made 3 more stops, a wine purchase and took group shot on a hill overlooking the vines. At just past 5pm we left the Barossa behind and headed back into the city.
TIP: Your eyes can never be bigger than your stomach so I think the problem is Maggie Beer; every product bearing her name is so true to the flavours of the featured ingredient, not only that, but she then takes it to a whole new level. So therefore, you cannot blame your eyes, you can blame your taste buds, all of them. They will tell your brain that your stomach is more than capable of ‘eating all that’, especially at Maggie’s Farm Shop.
