Wrapping up the trip!

The last couple days were pretty laid back.

On our last full day in the Barossa we took a wine tasting bus around to a few different wineries. My personal favorite for the day was Rockford (personal notes so I remember the wines I liked: P.S. Marion Tawny and the 2012 Rod and Spur were great, but the 2015 White Frontignac was especially nice on a HOT day — but very sweet. Good for one glass).

Before heading back to Adelaide we decided to go for a drive around Barossa to take some photos. This included Chateau Tanunda, and also a helicopter flight! We had been seeing signs all over the place that said “Helicopter flights $35!” — so how could we say no?

It turns out that the $35 flight was only 4 minutes long…TOTALLY WORTH IT. The drive out there was beautiful, and the 80s style safety video was hilarious. Plus, helicopters are cool.

Other than that — nothing really exciting happened. check out the video/pictures!

Today’s an easy one. We woke up, had a quick brekky, and hit the road to Barossa Valley!

Once we arrived, we hopped in a cab and went to Hentley Farm where we had a private wine tasting and a 5 course degustation that was probably the best meal we’ve had (until we hit the desserts — they were meh). It was a ‘secret menu’ so we didn’t know what we were eating till it came out, and each day the menu changes slightly so you really don’t know what you’re going to get!

After lunch we bought a couple bottles of wine, took a cab back to the hotel, and passed out. That was pretty much the day lol. It was fantastic.
