“If you enjoy hiking this is a great choice. The drive alone is spectacular, and then you can walk up to the lookout and gaze out over the entire Barossa Valley. It's a fairly easy uphill walk which takes around an hour. So worth it!”

“Weather you are a wine lover like myself or a completely non drinker like my flatmate Greg, you must visit the wineries and of course one of my favorites in the world!!!! Just driving there is amazing plus all the stops along the ways... Play your cards right and Greg will drive you there, he always loves going for a drive and doesn't drink... ”

A delightful dining experience as you are surrounded by their beautiful lush gardens made visible by the floor to ceiling glass walls of the restaurant. Tip: It can get quite hot in the Summer months. ”

“A collaboration between Executive Chef Mark McNamara and Chief Winemaker Dan Swincer, the dining experience is the ultimate expression of fine food and wine. Indulge in a four or eight-course tasting menu, designed to complement the power and elegance of St Hugo wines, or book the Chef’s Table Experience, which includes a tour of the vineyard and kitchen garden.”
