Blimey, the UK lads had a fab Barossa Valley tour

Please like and share.

Five UK lads, one a Melbourne resident decided to book a gold level Be consumed. Barossa Valley tour.

The first stop was Henschke’s Wines of Eden Valley where they were able to meet Stephen Henschke in his vintage winemaking attire, and were photographed with him holding a bottle of their famous Hill of Grace shiraz….amazing! Then it it was a full range tasting of wines at Yalumba, the boys buying some wines they said they would never have found at Dan Murphy’s. Barossa Cheese Co was next, where one of the lads showed his expertise, presently working in a cheese store in the UK.

The lovely Kirrilee,  owner of Taste Eden Valley of Angaston, went through more than 8 wines in their range, the lads loving the Eden Valley Rieslings.

Scrumptious Apex Bakery crusty bread with a local metwurst,  olives and cheese, before an oversized black pepper kebab, loaded with juicy steak and vegetables. For sweets they loved the home made honey caramel and macadamia ice cream with fresh home grown figs, lightly poached. Of course, a bottle of the Roenfeldt Hill gold medal ZSGM washed it all down, the boys saying it was by far the best wine of the day.

A tasting at Seppeltsfield, then Kalleskes and finally, Torbreck Wines wrapped up the day, but not before getting some photos by the oldest commercial vines in the world, at Langmeil. “Blimey, we will definitely be back with our friends!” they said.
