The Tailor Touring Co> Barossa – From Paddock to Plate at Hutton Vale
Your Barossa Valley journey will begin with a meet and greet at your accommodation by your local guide. The drive to the Barossa is relatively short and filled with exceptional scenery.
Today’s experience has been specifically designed to highlight the extraordinary level of quality and passion that Barossan artisan producers have for their craft. There is no better family to showcase artisanal Barossa produce, than seventh-generation farmers and owners of Hutton Vale Farm, John and Jan Angas.
Hutton Vale Farm offers a wonderful example of elegant sustainability set amidst an iconic Barossa landscape. Join John and Jan for an exceptional day of private access to the oldest mixed family farm in the Barossa Valley with a perfect blend of history, nature, environment, vineyards, food and wine. A day you will certainly never forget!
Celebrated for its fine wool, free-range lamb, duck, chicken and pork, as well as artisan food products, such as pickles and preserves. Hutton Vale Farm is also an award-winning boutique wine producer; its Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache vines are taken from some of Australia’s oldest plantings. Hutton Vale Farm is an iconic South Australian property, part of the original estate created by George Fife Angas (1789-1879), one of the architects of the Colony of South Australia. The family originally owned 28,000 acres of Barossa land, and the nearby village of Angaston was named in their honour.
Follow the journey of the production of wool, food and wine explained by John Angas as he takes you around the farm. John says visits to Hutton Vale Farm are an opportunity for guests to experience the rhythms of country life first hand – and to sample some genuine country hospitality.
Jan Angas will create your farmhouse lunch with home grown produce. She is a dedicated cook, with extensive regional food knowledge, preparing magnificent flavours of the Barossa, from food grown on Hutton Vale Farm or sourced from local artisan makers. There is no better way to enjoy authentic Barossa generosity, with the warmth of a fire, or the sun, under the vines in the private stone walled garden.
The day is a most superb country experience in a pristine heritage landscape that has been under the custodianship of the Angas family since European settlement of South Australia. A relaxed and real encounter with friendly conversation over stories of the region.
As your Hutton Vale Farm experience begins to wind down, your local guide will advise it is time to re-board the vehicle and begin the drive back to your accommodation. Leave the Barossa behind you, with a new appreciation of the region and all it has to offer.
