A wine run around the Hahndorf area was undertaken by club members on Saturday 23 October. Four Jeeps and a Perenti took part along with some friends of Mick and Deb Jenner. We met at Millies Bakery at Mount Barker for coffee, before heading off to the Karrawatta winery near Meadows through the verdant Adelaide Hills. This spectacular winery is situated amongst vines grown over the adjacent rolling hills. The cellar door is a quite recent development to the vineyard which has been in operation since the early nineties. After wine tasting, we set off for lunch at the Longview winery near Macclesfield. We were seated in a private room overlooking the sprawling vineyards, and some local sculptures. Lunch consisted of plentiful platters of antipasto and cheese, accompanied by the local wines. Some members also undertook tastings.
After lunch we set off to Hahndorf via Echunga to our last stop at the Landhaus winery on the main road in Hahndorf where we were met by the effusive host who offered tasting of up to 18 of their wines. However being late in the day, the ladies opted for a glass of bubbles, with some of the men choosing a cleansing ale or coffee.
A really great day out, enjoyed by all who attended. A big thank you to Deb Jenner for organizing the event.
A reminder that the club run to Rick’s farm is still on for 24 September. Light rain is forecast, but that shouldn’t be a problem this time! Meet at Mount Torrens pub at 10.00 am for a run via backroads to the Mannum waterfall and then back to Rick’s for a BBQ lunch. The club will be providing the BBQ lunch , but bring you own drinks and chairs and if you wish, salads and desserts. An extra treat will be the lamb sausages locally made from lamb sourced from Rick’s flock.
Military vehicles are preferred but civvy vehicles capable of managing dirt roads are OK.
For those not wishing to partake in the run, you can go direct to Rick’s farm to arrive after 12.30.
Family and friends are welcome to attend.
Those interested and haven’t yet indicated, please contact Mick Jenner or Rick, so we can cater for the required numbers.
