The Adelaide Hills was one of the areas affected in the summer bushfires that hit South Australia. Like me, you’ve probably donated or helped out in some way to at least one of the charities or community services all helping the many areas affected in Australia. The way I like to really feel that I’ve helped out at a grass roots level has been to buy from the towns and businesses affected. A very easy thing to do either by visiting the places directly or buying online or looking for products when you shop.
Discovering wineries in the Adelaide Hills is more than just about the wine. My latest find is Anderson Hill winery in Lenswood. Not that they are new on the scene, the winery was established in 1994 by the Anderson family on 35 picturesque acres. The restaurant is however recently expanded and you have the option of dining indoors, out on the deck or at tables set up on the lawn. The views to the north from outside overlook the vineyards and take in breathtaking rolling hills and the mountain bike trails in Mt Crawford Forest.
