You can browse amongst her personally selected regional specialty goods, purchase one of her signed books or simply sit back & take in the views.
Continue to Angaston and visit Lambert Estate, where you will enjoy a structured wine tasting whilst sampling local seasonal produce from gourmet platters. Main course follows, and is a feast for the senses – with two signature dishes, salad and vegetables. You may wish to purchase a glass of wine from the impressive wine selection, or enjoy a coffee accompanied with their popular Chocolatier (Chocolate Port).
Take in the views from Mengler Hill Lookout before our final stop at Pindarie, a multi-tourism award winning cellar door which feels more like an Australian Homestead than a cellar door. Here, the friendly staff don’t just pour the wine; they share the stories behind the wines and Pindarie, a great way to finish off our Barossa Food & Wine Experience.
