Chasing Wickets and Wine in the Barossa Valley, South Australia
If Gatsby had been Aussie, this is where he’d have hung his chapeau. Hop on the nearest Liquor Bus or Wine Train and drink your way through dozens of the world’s finest vineyards and cellar doors. Once your head has begun its swirling dizzy-dance and the Aussie sun has baked you straight through, stumble over to Chateau Tanunda for gourmet cheese, a round of croquet on the green, and a palate-pleasing array of true-blue South Australian wines. Don’t miss the Small Winemaker’s Centre inside this 1890s estate for a glimpse of the up-and-comers of the Southern Hemisphere grape. If cheap, but glamorous inebriation amidst sprawling vistas is what you hope to achieve, there can be few better places than the Barossa Valley.
