Your day begins with breakfast overlooking the glorious Jacob’s Creek vineyards, then add some Maggie Beer’s flair to your cooking, in the very studio where Maggie and Simon filmed the Cook and the Chef, at a private demonstration. Sample the many products at her farm shop. Leaving the Barossa behind, head through the picturesque Adelaide Hills to Barristers Block; a small and friendly family run winery. Here you’ll enjoy a wine tasting at their cellar door followed by a leisurely lunch of homemade pizzas and shared local platters. It’s then onto historic Hahndorf. Settled by 19th-century Lutheran migrants, it’s known for its original German-style architecture and artisanal food. To learn more, visit the Hahndorf Academy, home to the German Migration Museum.
