The #HEWman does so much more than look impeccably stylish. His taste extends to other outlets like culture, food, wine and experiencing the best that Australia, and the world, has to offer. So where is the perfect spot for the HEW man to visit? The Barossa Valley. HEW's creator, Ema, shares her perfect day in the region.
Your morning is best spent at The Barossa Farmers Market to sample the fresh and delicious food that the region has to offer. Go in a group so you can try a little bit of everything and share your treats! One thing you can’t leave the market without trying are Mark’s, from Food Luddite, Portuguese tarts. Make sure to buy a few because you’ll regret only having one.
IN THE MORNING:
Seppeltsfield is a must if you like port. They have an enormous collection of aged port dating back 100 years. It’s incredible to sample the port at such vast stages in the ageing process. A fun thing to do is try port from the barrel of the year you were born. It’s an unmissable Barossa experience.
Travis Earth is a small winery with a very laid back and homey vibe. It’s the place to go if you’re looking for information on the processes involved in making wine, and where you can relax because the winery is just in back yard!
Harvest Kitchen is a beautiful restaurant on the outskirts of Tanunda. Part of the Artisans of Barossa, a group of producers who focus on small batch, regional winemaking, Harvest Kitchen lets you indulge in sweeping views over the Barossa Valley. Indulge in Harvest Kitchen’s 'Feed me like a Barossan' menu where the kitchen does the choosing for you.
Kalleske is a family run farm and winery near the village of Greenock. They have been open since 1853! Head there for great white wine and absolutely delicious cheese platters. For those who are looking to try something different, Kalleske specialises in organic and biodynamic wine.
Award winning Kellermeister is the place to head to if you’re more of a meat platter than cheese kind of man. Naturally, the wine is noteworthy, with special mention to their Shiraz.
Henschke Wine is another family run business in the region, with a great cellar door. It is quite far from the other wineries but worth it to see their ‘Hill of Grace’ which has 120 year old vines. Just keep in mind that they're not open on Sundays and close at midday on Saturday. Plan ahead to when you're organising your trip to Henschke Wine.
Head to 1918, located in Tanuda. 1918 is a beautiful, cozy venue with exceptional food. The oysters were a highlight for entrées. The dessert choices are incredible with choices like saffron panacotta and blancmange; for those who don’t like to miss out they even have a desert tasting platter. 1918 is extremely popular so make sure to book in advance!
