After a solid 12 hours on the road, my glorious Barossa Gourmet Weekend was finally coming to an end, I was tired to the point of semi-delirious but nothing could suppress my excitement for the five course dinner at Barossa Valley Brewing for the monthly event called ‘Battle of the Bottle’.

What’s better than good wine? Wine made by passionate people with strong environmental and moral ethics. Meet Michael and Alisa Hart of Hart of the Barossa, the oldest certified organic vineyard in the Barossa Valley.
One of the highlights whilst gallivanting through the Barossa Gourmet Weekend was an up close and personal wine tasting experience with the Hart’s for their event – Shiraz Flights with Barossa Bites.

OK, so I was pretty boozy the first time I went to Ancient World. A friend had told me about this magical underground wonderland of cheap beers and rad music, tucked down an alleyway behind Hindley Street.

I’ll be honest, I can’t remember the last time I was awake before sunrise. Ordinarily, I couldn’t think of anything worse, but today was different. I woke up with the feelings reminiscent of a kid on Christmas day, but instead of the anticipation of that Barbie camper trailer I’d been dreaming of, I awoke with thoughts that within a couple of hours I’d be eating breakfast by an open wood fire in the Barossa Valley.
Itinerary planned – check. iPhone and camera charged – check. Umbrella, lipstick and sunglasses packed – check. Double shot flat white – CHECK.
I picked up my partner in crime, Daniel (the man behind the lens) and we were on our way, Barossa bound.
