After your cooking skills have been put to the test you will enjoy a leisurely lunch matched with Jacob’s Creek wines.

For those who prefer a more relaxed approach to your dining then the Jacobs Creek Food and Wine Masterclass and Four Course Lunch is a must. This sensory journey will allow you to indulge in truly remarkable wine and food pairings, showcasing the Barossa, Jacob’s Creek, and the international love of this Aussie favourite. This bespoke Master Class will evoke a deeper passion for Jacob’s Creek wines and the Barossa Valley region.

This evenings dinner is at the iconic FermentAsian restaurant in the township of Tanunda. Head Chef Tuoi Do delivers a mind-blowing menu with its roots entrenched in her Vietnamese heritage and inspiration drawn from many of Australia’s leading restaurants serving south east Asian cuisine.

Day 3:

Awake again to a delicious self-served breakfast in the comfort of your cottage before checking out and heading off to tick another iconic experience off of your Barossa bucket list.

The world famous Penfolds Winery lies on the outskirts of the township of Nuriootpa in the Northern Barossa, a short but scenic 25 minute drive from Barossa Shiraz Estate. Penfolds is one of Australia’s most iconic wineries and allows you to be a winemaker for the day with their Make Your Own Blend Experience.

At this unique hands-on winemaking class you will step into the winemakers’ laboratory, put on your white coat, and get to work blending your own special drop of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro – just like Penfolds own Bin 138. Your own personal blend is then bottled for you to take home and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
