Barossa Winery Tour 21 April

Kev Tipler organized another of his winery tours through the Barossa Valley on 21 April 2018. Originally we were to take our military vehicles, but unfortunately my Jeep was u/s due to a brake problem, so we decided to take our civvy vehicles. On what turned out to be a lovely sunny autumn day, we met at Williamstown Cafe at 0900 hrs for coffee and Marc Turner arrived in his jeep! We then visited St Hallett winery for tastings where we were well looked after by a staff member who was a friend of Kev’s.

Next we drove to Pindarie for tastings, and were met by Tony Luke for lunch. After lunch Kev took us on a scenic drive including on some rough tracks to  Jacob Creek’s Steingarten Vineyard on top of the eastern ridge, then on to another of Kev’s friend’s wineries at Liebich Wein for fortified tastings and finishing up a Tony Luke’s for afternoon tea.

A really good day was had by all who attended. Well done Kev!
