I have to confess I feel quite emotional each time I watch this video of the Barossa Valley. It captures the essence of what I love about the Barossa…the countryside, the characters and the genuine warmth of the people who live and work here, not to mention the fabulous Barossa food culture!
I came to the Barossa in 1985, but can honestly say that it’s only since we opened Seppeltsfield Vineyard Cottage in 2004 that I have realised just how special it is. Seeing the Barossa Valley through my guest’s eyes and really appreciating what is so special about it has been a wonderful journey of discovery.
This video was made by Dragan Radocaj, another relative newcomer to the Barossa. Dragan’s amazing photography manages to capture the beauty, light and soul of our region.
The very first scene is palm lined Seppeltsfield Road which I meander along when I head off to do my shopping – how lucky am I?
You will meet our Butcher Graham Linke in his smokehouse amidst his mettwurst, our Bakers from Apex Bakery at their wood fired Scotch Oven trying the Streuselkuchen and Mark McNamara & Callum Hann making and tasting Rote Grutze & cream, one of the Barossa Valley’s many food traditions.
The reason I love this video is that it is exactly what the Barossa looks like through the seasons, and I am lucky enough to live amongst all the wonderful people portrayed in it. The Barossa is about wine, food, heritage and hospitality and visitors to the Barossa Valley get plenty of that!
So, make yourself a cup of tea, turn the volume up and sit back and enjoy Barossa at Home, South Australia’s little piece of Paradise!
…..and here are some links to some of the other wonderful places you visited in the video……the Barossa Farmers Market, Appellation restaurant, Maggie Beer’s Farmshop, Victoria at the Barossa Valley Cheese Company and the Seppeltsfield Winery (just across the road from us)!
