My Barossa Day #20 - Lazy Saturdays made for entertaining
A submission from Pat Chiverton, Barossa Visitor Centre volunteer/ambassador
We moved to the Barossa 20 years ago from Adelaide with our two boys and feel proud to call the Barossa home. We love sharing the Barossa with our friends and family when they visit for the day. We can't wait to entertain our first visitors again and this is how we dream of spending a lazy Saturday with family and friends.
Our ultimate Barossa Day will start in Tanunda. We will meet in main street and go for a stroll along the paths to visit shops and have a lovely Barossa coffee. The girls will sneak into Wohlers to graze the specials whilst the boys order our coffees and wait patiently for us. We hide our purchases well away from their stares!
Our next stop is a tasting at Elderton Wines with their beautiful cellar door bungalow built in 1918 looking over vineyards established as far back as 1894.
Peter Lehmann Wines is our next tasting spot with a wine to suit everyone. A beautiful platter lunch of local Barossa produce which will be shared under the verandah on a long table that we can take our time and enjoy the expansive gardens.
We will move onto Maggie Beer's Farmshop to stock up on pate, sauce and oils. We may get a coffee and cake while we are there, but an ice-cream is an absolute must!
Moving onto to a quick stop at Rosenvale with 180 degree panoramic view of the Barossa Ranges, before we finish the day at Atze's Corner Wines. Atze's has breathtaking views from their verandah overlooking vineyards established since 1912. A beautiful way to end the day watching the sunset with our friends again.
