Are you ready for a taste explosion?

RAA has just launched SA Holiday Experiences so we can all explore our amazing state in style! They’ve done all the hard work for us (whoop whoop) so you can book a holiday including accommodation and experiences with just a few clicks of a button. It’s great for busy people like myself. AND makes the holiday that much more exciting!

Here is one of the awesome (and tastiest) experiences you can do while in the Barossa!

:: Sensory Tasting Lunch

Well, this was equally as fun as it was delicious! And so educational, too. I felt like a fully-qualified wine connoisseur. Almost.

This experience is like no other. It kicks off with a two-course lunch at Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre, including a Barossa-themed platter, loaded with local produce.

After an amazing lunch, you’re led into a full sensory experience overlooking the divine Jacob’s Creek vines.

For the next hour, it’s all about you, your taste buds and wine. Our guide, Daniel, was so fantastic. He paired a variety of wines with a platter of delicious Barossa produce.


Who knew a strawberry, dipped in pepper, could change the way a Shiraz tasted? Or how a slice of Brie could make a pomegranate jelly pop? Or, if you chew on a mint leaf while blocking your nose, you actually can’t taste anything until you unblock it? Your nose makes up 90% of your taste, so without a sense of smell, your love for delicious food is screwed!

As someone who knows absolutely nothing about wine, this was so interesting and Daniel made it ridiculously fun at the same time!

Warning: It’s easy to lose track of how much you’ve had to drink — so sipping water during the experience definitely helps.

If you love wine and pairing it with the right foods to bring out the best flavours, you’ll adore this experience! Why not take what you learn and show-off to your wine-loving friends, over a dinner party at home? It’s part of the Barossa RAA SA Holiday Experiences package.
