My Barossa Day #25 - Eat. Drink. Relax. Repeat

A guest submission from Terri Norman, Lindsay Wine Estate

We don’t like to be rushed in the Barossa . A preference of quality over quantity, good service over rushed service and culture over clinical. Why…? We’re passionate about our story, our friends’ story, our Barossa.

Here's my recommendations for a 'quality' day exploring the Barossa.

9am – Fleur Social

A coffee shop and florist in one ... Fleur Social ticks all the boxes! Amazing single origin coffee, bagels packed with locally sourced and produced ingredients (hangover cure plus!), plus the vibe of the place is relaxed and fun. A perfect place to start your morning, check your emails and plan your day ahead.

11am – First Drop Wines/Home of the Brave

Fruit sourced from unique vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa to bring you a diverse range with a little Mediterranean influence. The wine list is extensive, and the décor is funky and art focused. Don’t expect detailed descriptions of vineyard soils, just a genuine passion for wine and Barossa Valley. The tapas menu here is delicious! THE place for a staggered lunch in between tastings.

1pm – Lindsay Wine Estate

The product of Will and Matt; two mates who share a passion for music, art and wine. They've combined all three of those passions can created a cellar door where casual tastings, cheese and wine paring, chocolate and wines tastings, local art, a cricket pitch in the summer, a large grass area for the kids and pooch to run around and a collection of 5,000 LP’s are an easy way to see the day away.

At Lindsay Wine Estate you're encourage to kick back and relax to some of your favourite tunes, with a platter of locally sourced goodies with a glass of Lindsay Wine Estate's finest in hand.

 

4pm – Vino Lokal

Vino Lokal, a wine bar, in the heat of Tanunda's main street is the place to spend an afternoon. Home to Artisans of Barossa - think five small producing gems all in one spot with Spinifex Wines, John Duval Wines, Hobbs of Barossa Ranges, Schwarz Wine Co. and Sons of Eden. This quaint little spot is perfect for a tasting, a beer or a nibble.

 

6pm – The Greenock

Taking something simple and doing it very very well. This gorgeous country pub has a reputation for the best parmi’s, burgers and steaks around. Local beers on the pour, local wines to choose from and Expresso Martini’s and Margaritas on tap. Quality, service and banter are on point at The Greenock. A great finish to a fantastic day.

Now that's my kind of Barossa day!
