Australasia | Australia | South Australia | Adelaide | Barossa Valley – Barossa Valley

If you like wine as I do, there is no way to skip Barossa Valley if you have a day or two in Adelaide. The Barossa Valley is about 55 km north east of Adelaide. Many agencies’ offer day-tours leaving Adelaide in the early morning, I booked a tour with Groovy Grape, but I guess they are all pretty similar.

Our first stop was the “Whispering Wall”, a concrete dam wall with an unbelievable acoustics, normal conversations held at one end can be heard clearly at the other end, more then 140 Meters away.

Our next stop was Orlando, one of the oldest wineries in the valley, established 1847.

Next was a lunch break and we continued with two more wineries and a distillery. I ended up with 26 different wines and 3 cocktails.

My favorite was a Port Wine named “Choc a Bloc”, (or something like that), but I unfortunately forgot the name of the wineries. I wonder why…

Later that day I found out that being “tipsy” doesn’t mean to be able to sleep on a bus, as I traveled from Adelaide to Melbourne.
