May 7, 2015 - Days 102 - 105 UPDATE NOTES

Hi All, The trip home to see the family was a bit of a break from the cold, rain and wind so far delivered to us here in South Australia. We stayed in or unit as a “guest” which is different but a lot of fun. During the time at home Heidi organised the 1st birthday party of our youngest grandchild Charlie May which was attended by all the family so we had a chance to catch up with all, but unfortunately the oldest grandchild had to work so we regretfully did not catch up with her. Our flight back to Adelaide was novel as we flew on a...

Nov 16, 2011 - Our day at the wineries

What a fantastic day!!! We were picked up in a 1959 Daimler by our excellent driver John. We started at Two Hands, then to Peter Lehman, then Langmeir. After that, we had a fantastic lunch at Vinters. We went to a scenic lookout (where everyone else was looking at John's car) and then off to 3 more - Artisans (which is 7 winemakers under one Cellar Door), a quick trip to Penfolds (far too crowded and commercialized) and then Torbreck.

We did one tour...

Mar 11, 2008 - Wein-Degustationen im Barossa Valley

Wir standen recht frueh auf und machten uns gleich auf die Weiterfahrt. Ziel war das Barossa Valley. Dies ist die sicherlich bekannteste Weingegend in Australien. Wir kamen dort am Mittag an, bezogen eine Cabin in einem Holiday Park und machten uns gleich auf, zu Wein-Degustationen. Wir machten zuerst Halt bei der auch in der Schweiz sehr bekannten Peter Lehmann Winery. Dort konnte man nicht nur Wein degustieren sondern auch gut essen. Spaeter besuchten wir die Wolf Blass Winery. Ein huebsches Museum erzaehlte die Geschichte von Wolf Blass...
