A vote for Australia's Barossa

Article content

12 July 2010

The Barossa region as a whole was a clear winner with the 100 Greatest Australian Gourmet Experiences panellists, who selected four of the valley’s experiences in the Top 100.

Australian Traveller editor Greg Barton says: "SA shines for sheer diversity. There aren’t any food regions, as such, because the whole state is a veritable feast. Cheese, wine, bread, chocolate, meat; you name it, it’s on show in SA."

The Barossa’s luxury vineyard retreat was also recently voted Australia’s ‘Best Luxury Accommodation (under 100 rooms)’ by readers of The Weekend Australian newspaper.

Acknowledging the award, James Carreker, owner and developer of The Louise said: "We are honoured that our guests have expressed their preferential vote, and for the Barossa to have been selected as home to Australia’s best small luxury accommodation."

The Louise is a luxuriously appointed 15-suite property surrounded by vineyards. Each suite offers guests their own gated courtyard entrance, a spacious ensuite, private open-air terrace with vineyard vistas and more. Some suites also have private outdoor showers. Bicycles are available on site whilst activities include hot air ballooning and private tours of heritage sites and local wineries.

Activities at the hotel include ‘Breakfast with the Kangaroos’, a privately guided walk to see kangaroos in their natural habitat followed by a gourmet picnic breakfast in the Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park and ‘Signature Barossa Experiences’, a chance to discover nine of the region’s top boutique winemakers opening their doors exclusively to overnight guests at The Louise, providing an unparalleled opportunity to meet the families and artisan individuals responsible for making some of Australia’s most prestigious wines whose distribution is limited to small volumes.
