My Barossa Day #15 - Be Swept Away By Barossa's Generous Lifestyle

A guest submission from Barossa Shiraz Estate 

This is what we look forward to doing when we have friends visiting from interstate (and they don’t have to spend 14 days self-isolating). For our guests at Barossa Shiraz Estate, this is what I will be recommending as another great way to spend a day in the Barossa ... prepare to be swept away by Barossa's generous lifestyle. 

Start your day with a yoga session on the lawn in front of my favourite, the Barn Cottage with your own personal yoga instructor from Barossa Wellness. Breakfast provisions are supplied by Lyndoch Butchers with bread from Apex Bakery.

Now that you have enjoyed breakfast overlooking the vines of the Southern Barossa, it is time to see what the whole of the Barossa looks like from the skies with a 30-minute helicopter ride with Bridgette from Barossa Helicopters. Once you are back safely on land, jump in the car and grab arguably one of the best coffee’s Lyndoch has to offer at the Table Café before heading down to see Rachel from Hemera Estate who will take you on private tour and tasting of what the Estate has to offer.  

Lunch will then be had at the award-winning Fino at Seppeltsfield and to top it off after lunch a Taste Your Birth Year experience with Nigel from Sepppeltsfield. While you are at Seppeltsfield pop into the Jam Factory to take in the current art exhibition as well as checking out the studios run by independent artists from a millinery to knife making. 

Once back in Lyndoch there should be enough time to do a walk through the picturesque Altona Reserve, then head down to Chateau Yaldara for a glass on the lawns of the Chateau while the sun sets.

Now that the sun has set and you have freshened up back at the Barn, you can walk across the road to Lyndoch Hill for the “Trust the Chef” tasting menu to put the icing on the cake of a terrific day in the Barossa.
