Nuriootpa and Tanunda, Day 2 ...

We awoke to a beautiful, clear sunny day- perfect for exploring the valley...
~
First up, coffee!
~
Mushrooms, scrambled eggs and honey cured bacon...
~
Then we were off to see a few wineries...  first stop - Rockford Wines.  Our favourite rosè wine Alicante Bouchée comes from here! 
~
They had some interesting wire and metal sculpures including this barbed wire sphere hanging in a tree...
~
Next stop, St Hallet Wines ... Lovely grounds here for outdoor dining...
~
~
On to Grant Burge Wines where we decided to have a light lunch...
~
We sat outside and admired the view, soaking up that sunshine!
~
We ordered 4 plates - a small quiche, a cheese platter for one, a tasting plate for one and a turkish bread with tomato, salad and cheese filling - all of which we shared...
~
Perfect!
~
Our last tasting was at Whistler Wines (on Brianna's recommendation)...
~
We bought a dozen of mixed wines because they were all good!
~
We did not try their Ring O Fire bier sticks!

Finally, we went to Maggie Beers Farm shop. We didn't go too overboard but we did buy some of her icecream...
~
...and I bought pickled figs and mustard preserved apricots and Bri bought the tomato sauce.
~
Then it was home to chill out for a few hours then Gus and Brianna started dinner...
~
Potatoes braised with herbs, bacon, butter and verjuice...
~
Pan fried prawns and scallops with lime & caper butter and a verjuice and butter sauce...smashing!
~
rolled loin of lamb, marinated in vino cotto and rosemary, verjuice heirloom carrots, braised potatoes with parsley and bacon and pan fried green beans...
Absolutely delicious!
~
This has been lots of fun, seeing who can cook the best but we all agreed it was a draw because both meals were fantastic!
~
Time for a bit of TV then lights out

Cheers - Joolz xx
