Take a moment in the morning to soak up the beauty of your surrounds as you relax with breakfast overlooking the glorious Jacob’s Creek vineyards. Then add some Maggie Beer flair to your cooking with a private demonstration in the very studio where Maggie and Simon filmed The Cook and the Chef. Graze through the many products at Maggie Beer’s farm shop, but be sure to save room for some relaxed long-table dining, as you head off for a delicious lunch at St Hugo’s in the atmospheric vine-draped courtyard.

As you depart the picturesque Barossa Valley, you will have the opportunity to support bushfire recovery by visiting renowned local producers in some of South Australia’s most beloved townships. Join us, in collaboration with the #EmptyEsky movement, and support some of our favourite local creators, with time to fill your esky at the decadent Melbas Chocolate factory, and time permitting, nearby Woodside Cheese Wrights and Chesterfield Whisky Firm. Next, head to Barristers Block Winery, to sample their delicious wines or pick up a tasty takeaway charcuterie board of cured meats or salmon pate for a picnic that evening. This family run winery lost 100% of its vineyards in the recent bushfires. Fortunately, their cellar was saved, and guests are invited to support their recovery by filling their eskies with goodies. Your last Bushfire Recovery stop in the region is the Lobethal Bierhaus, where you can take advantage of tastings, or take home your favourites brews. We then head to Manna by Haus in historic Hahndorf, the perfect place to unwind.

Visit a delectable cheese cellar that showcases handmade artisan flavours from local producers. Bidding farewell to the idyllic Adelaide Hills, our journey then takes us to the stunning landscape of McLaren Vale and the quirky d’Arenberg Cube. This building was inspired by the complexities and puzzles of winemaking, with each of the five levels carefully designed to entice and excite the senses. Here, you’ll be taken on a journey before arriving at the top floor for a tasting with 360-degree views of the vineyards and a delicious three-course lunch with wine at the stunning d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant. There will also be an opportunity, for those interested, to see the Salvador Dali exhibition.
