We leave the coast road today and head north to the Barossa Valley, home of my favourite wine – Jacobs Creek.

It’s a pretty drive through the vineyards and farms of the Adelaide Hills, through the quaint German town of Hahndorf, where we take a wander. Hahndorf was settled by German pioneers in 1834. They tried to conceal their Germaness due to persecution during WW1 but are trying to rediscover it again to boost tourism.

Onwards on Route B34, branded the Epicurean Way. We are enticed by a large yellow cow into a cheese shop and purchase some very tasty goats Brie for lunch.

On arrival in the Barossa Valley, our first point of call is, of course, Jacobs Creek, followed by Wolf Blass and then Penfolds. There are some heavy hitters around here.

We check into our hotel; The Vine (see what they’ve done there?) and get some chips to soak up all that alcohol.
