Barossa Gourmet Weekend

The Barossa Gourmet Weekend is on Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 August 2012.

Brave the cold and come on out for fabulous food, world famous wines and great live entertainment!

Our tips:

Start the day at Chateau Tanunda with a Sparkling Shiraz and a scrumptious breakfast by Owen Andrews.
Then head up to Artisans for terrific views over the valley, a large range of small, exclusive wine producers, teamed with some delicious dishes by Simon Bryant and the acoustic tunes of Laura Hill.

I can certainly see myself settling in for the afternoon there, but Gibson and Whistler are always great options too.
