Nuriootpa to Angaston – Taste Your Way Through the Barossa During the 2nd Leg!
Oh Maggie Beer, what I wouldn’t do for some of your homegrown produce.
As you follow the cyclists on their quest for glory, why not sidestep and sample the delights of one of Australia’s iconic produce growers? Indulge in world famous pates, homegrown olive oils and wood-oven breads in the farm shop, accompanied by a glass of wine to match. If you’re afraid of missing all the cycling action, fear not – simply purchase a Maggie Beer hamper to take with you on the road (or bike if you’re so inclined)! This way, you get the best of both worlds, and you definitely won’t regret having all these delicious treats to savour later.
