A little over a week ago, we did something really big. In 4 days we poured ourselves into the Barossa Valley, I think it’s safe to say we got drunk on all things Barossa.

It’s only a 1 hour flight from Melbourne, but this place is entirely ‘other world-ly’. As many of you will know, this little valley in South Australia is home to countless well known and boutique wineries. We were lucky enough to see a selection of our favorites and even better, was when we got off the tourist track to meet some of the wine makers and their families. A special mention must go out to Jan & John at Hutton Vale winery, John Glaetzer & family and Colin Sheppard of Flaxman Wines who were all so welcoming and generous in spirit – thank you.

This post has taken me a while to put together, because never have I had SO many photos to contend with, I don’t want to leave any of it out. Barossa, you brought out my love of photography at every turn and I can’t wait to see you again.

This post is a whopper – enjoy!
