Gourmet Greenock – Barossa Valley

2 Comments

As a way to support South Australian Tourism and businesses, the state’s tourism authority has been gifting ‘Great State Vouchers’ which enable people to have an ‘experience’ or get accommodation at a very reduced price to boost the economy in these sectors. One of these vouchers I was able to use recently to book a wine and cheese flight at a Barossa winery.

There were a number of establishments to choose from, and I chose this particular winery with the thought of also discovering a different part of the Barossa Valley that I wasn’t too familiar with.  The larger towns of Tanunda and Nuriootpa are probably the busier and more well-known towns and they have very good caravan parks and loads of things to do in those centres.

Unfortunately there may not be many shops or businesses open when you get to your destination so it will pay to go for a walk, make a phone call or check social media or just take a drive by to see for yourself. Some cafés and restaurants with outdoor dining may be open and food and beverage takeaways are always a possibility so it’s time to start spreading the money around again and supporting our regions.

Barossa Valley Chocolate Company

It’s the Easter weekend and unlike any one we’ve ever experienced before. I hope everyone is having their fill of chocolate. I know that shouldn’t happen until Sunday, but tough times call for desperate measures! Just to tempt everyone a little more here’s an ideal spot to head to in South Australia (add it to the list) when you want a chocolate fix, Easter or not.

The Barossa Valley Chocolate Company is in the town of Tanunda, a little under 80 kilometres from Adelaide. The Barossa of course is known world wide for its wines, in particular its reds, but it also has many great dining experiences, distillers and brewers, friendly country boutiques and artisan food makers.
