What to expect:

Day 1: Welcome, Hutton Vale Farm tasting and overnight at the J.H.A. Stone Cellar

Arrive Friday afternoon and be welcomed by a member of the family to the luxurious J.H.A. Stone Cellar on Hutton Vale Farm. A little time to settle in and enjoy the view, before a tour across the farm countryside on your way to a special tasting of Hutton Vale Farm’s fine wines in the relaxing cellar door. Collect your generous Barossa dinner from the farm kitchen, before returning to your villa to dine with a bottle of Hutton Vale Farm wine relaxed by the fire or outdoors under the night sky (all inclusive).

Day 2: Angaston Village, Henschke tasting, lunch @ Flaxman Wines, overnight at J.H.A Stone Cellar

Take a short trip to Angaston for a true village experience of artisan family businesses. Saturday morning is full of fresh produce at the Barossa Farmers market with up to 80 stall holders sharing what they grow and make.

Henschke will send a car with your personal host to collect you at 10:30am from your accommodation for a guided tour of the Mount Edelstone vineyard and Henschke winery, followed by a carefully curated private tasting.

At 1pm upon arrival at Flaxman Wines, Colin Sheppard (winemaker) will take you on a short tour of the vineyard (weather dependant), to share with you the viticulture, winemaking processes and stories behind the wines. You can then sit back, relax and enjoy a 3-course meal of seasonal produce cooked by Colin with each course paired with Flaxman Wines.

In the evening you will return to the J.H.A. Stone Cellar to enjoy your farmers market fare for light supper after your long afternoon lunch. Sit and enjoy the views and fire with wine from the day.

Day 3: DIY brekkie, Yalumba Tasting

Sunday morning will start with breakfast from your complimentary breakfast provisions provided before departing the J.H.A. Stone Cellar.

After a leisurely start to the day you will visit Yalumba at 12 noon for the ‘Yalumba unlocked’ experience which begins in the Wine Room, previously the brandy bond store. This experience will take guests through a short history of Yalumba’s Hill-Smith family. Guests will then enjoy a private tour of the grounds, historic buildings, the unique Yalumba Cooperage and iconic Signature Cellar, along with the unique converted fermentation Tank 11 & 12. The tour culminates in tasting of Yalumba’s Rare & Fine wines back at the Wine Room, hosted by a Yalumba Ambassador whilst sharing a Cooper’s Platter lunch of local artisanal produce.

At 1pm, you have the option to call into the old Angaston railway station now given new life as the Barossa Activity Station, have a coffee at Casa Carboni, or shop the main street before driving home through the scenic Adelaide Hills.

Just over an hours’ drive from Adelaide, you will find yourself in the beautiful Eden Valley.

This weekend is hosted by

Henschke

Henschke is recognised for its rich heritage, innovative spirit and commitment to handcrafting exceptional wines for over 150 years. The Henschke family grapegrowing and winemaking tradition spans six generations, from sustainably grown vineyards in the Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills.

The Henschke Mount Edelstone Experience offers exclusive access to the vineyard that built Henschke’s nation-wide reputation for fine, single-vineyard wine; beginning with a visit to the Centenarian Mount Edelstone vines, followed by a tour of the historic working winery and your own private tasting, headlined by Mount Edelstone Single-Vineyard Shiraz.

Hutton Vale Farm

Hutton Vale Farm is set amidst an impressive natural Barossa landscape. Pioneers of the region, the Angas family produce fine wine, exceptional on-farm accommodation, quality wool, free-range natural pasture lamb and hand-made artisan produce.

Hutton Vale Farm is an award-winning boutique wine producer from its Eden Valley vineyard growing classic varieties; Riesling, Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. The old vines were originally sourced from some of Australia’s oldest plantings.

Hutton Vale Farm was first established in 1843 by John Howard Angas. The Stone Cellar accommodation honours his name, with his initials, J.H.A.

Flaxman Wines

Fi & Col Sheppard established Flaxman Wines in 2004 when they purchased the property and made the vine-change move across from Melbourne.

Their vineyard sits in the very beautiful and picturesque Eden Valley in the Barossa and includes 3 acres of Riesling, 2.5 acres of Shiraz and 1/2 acre of Semillon, all planted in 1929.

For Colin and Fiona Sheppard, a desire to combine their passion for food and wine has led them to create a world-class boutique wine and food experience for their visitors to enjoy.

Yalumba

Yalumba has been fiercely independent, family-owned winemakers since 1849, showcasing the best of the Barossa. For six generations Yalumba has embraced the magnificent unknown, letting the land lead the way, and growing vines with as little interference as possible. Yalumba started with the planting of vines in 1849, by founder Samuel Smith. Under the moonlight, in the heart of the Barossa, he set in place not just the first of many generations of vines, but a philosophy that still holds true today. A genuine respect for the land and a willingness to venture into the unknown.

Yalumba has always had a deep connection to the Barossa. The long-term vision is manifested in the marble and sandstone Clocktower; a solid monument to their commitment to the region. The Yalumba Cooperage also shows this passion – where the proud tradition of crafting oak barrels in continued and the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
