Our destination is the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort, where a relaxed barbeque dinner is served at the resort.
Tuesday 27 April
Explore the Barossa, choosing the option that best suits you. Start the day with a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the valley (additional cost); visit Seppeltsfield for lunch, wine tasting and some shopping time at the adjacent Jam Factory Gallery, supporting local artists and craftspeople; ‘Make Your Own Blend’ at Penfolds, using Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro – you’ll even receive a bottle of your blend to take home; or hone your cooking skills with a private cooking demonstration and wine tasting at Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop.
