Russells Pizza House of Willunga – a fantastic spot to party

russellsRussell Jeavon’s pizza haunt at Willunga has, for some years, been a favourite short trip night out for groups of friends, and family celebrations.  Rustic atmosphere, warm and inviting even on the coldest nights; standing around open fires in winter. Of course, wood fired ovens. Surprise functions catered for. Food is sensational, as you would expect…it just keeps on coming until you are full to the brim. Not only pizzas, great deserts too.

Minibus to Hahndorf – a heritage treasure

hahndorf inn 1The beautiful town of Hahndorf is just 30 minutes from the city of Adelaide. It was first settled by Lutheran/Prussian immigrants in 1839, and is Australia’s oldest German settlement, the surviving buildings and character replicating the fachwerk architecture of the homeland.

George Fyfe Angas, a pillar of our state’s heritage, was a Newcastle (UK) businessman. He saw the potential of the region and Barossa Valley, working with  Hamburg pastor August Kavel to bring several 250px-George_Fife_Angashundred oppressed Lutheran families to settle here, and was the founder of The South Australian Company, risking his entire family fortunes in loan guarantees to see it established.

Today, Hahndorf sees thousands of tourists every week, the quaint Main St being a half km walk of attractions from home made ice creameries, arts, crafts, and Hahndorf03boutique winery cellar doors to hotel restaurants serving traditional German dishes.

Outstanding South Australian Wine Region Tours

IMG_cropped 0684 comp

Wayne’s week is always a busy one. He runs the family vineyard, markets his wines, does the rep work in the Adelaide restaurant scene, and does some consulting work too, as well as being involved in tourism.  He has now created  ABRM – short for Adelaide Barossa Regional Minibus, along with sub- brands, Be consumed.tours, and Winemaker Tours. Whilst the key target markets are in middle to high end wine tourism, he will be providing a full range of minibus services for groups.

The Be consumed. tours range provides clients with a wonderful tourism experience, delivering on the  magnificent food and wine character/culture of our state, as depicted in the award winning Tourism SA advert – click here to see.. Barossa be consumed. Whilst the ad is focussed on the Barossa Valley, it really is an expose of the character of all wine regions of our state. South Australian wine tours are simply exhilarating!

The wine region tours on offer are like no other, in that they are led by a vigneron and small winemaker, with guests able to choose from a range of itineraries, which can include a visit and lunch in the newly fitted barrel shed or in the natural bush of Roenfeldt Hill vineyard overlooking the Barossa.

Tours of the McLaren Vale, Hills and Clare Valley regions are also part of the business. Charters are welcomed too, whereby clients can run the day, using their  own itinerary.

Winemaker tours final 150dpi webThe Winemaker Tours is a service aimed at VIP groups….wine clubs, trade, restaurants, hotels etc and those who are seeking customised days in the wine regions, and meetings with the winemakers.
