Weekend in Barossa Valley | Part II

Day 2 morning of our Barossa Valley weekend started with a buzz despite an early morning. We were off to enjoy the magical view of Barossa Valley up high with Barossa Valley Ballooning. Hot air ballooning has not just been on my bucket list, but top of the list.

We experienced breathtaking 360 degree panoramic views of vineyards and the Barossa ranges. It was peaceful, yet exhilarating. We rose with the sunrise, giving us a perspective like no other.

When we returned to earth, there was no better way to complete our flight than by reliving it with our fellow balloonists over breakfast. We returned to Novotel Barossa Valley Resort to celebrate in style with a delicious gourmet breakfast and a glass of bubbly to toast our experience.

A trip to Barossa Valley is not complete without a visit to Jacobs Creek Winery to enjoy a delicious lunch and a day amongst the vines.

In 1847, along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, Johann Gramp planted his first vineyard. His vision was to create great tasting wines that reflect the true character of the grapes and the land. To this day, wines are produced to showcase how each grape variety expresses itself when shaped by the soil and the sun of Australia.

With our belly’s satisfied and full, we headed off to Maggie Beer Farm shop.
