“Vintage in the RIverland”

 

“The Riverland in South Australia is a long established, warm climate producing region, located east of the Barossa Valley.  It extends for 330 km along the Murray River from Blanchtown to Paringa”  Quote: http://www.riverlandwine.com.au

 

🍇A little taste of Vintage time in the Riverland.

Families are collectively involved during this really busy time of the year. Long days, working through the nights.
Grape Harvesters moving through vineyards, Truck drivers transporting grapes, wineries in full swing & we get to see the big machines at work.
Some vineyards still pick by hand to take their grapes off the vines.

“Liam”   On Saturday my Grandparents had their shiraz grapes harvested.  This footage I took early in the morning of their nephew, Brett harvesting the grapes with his harvester.  It took 4 hours to pick this patch”

Thanks to Liam a Middle School Student at Rivergum Christian College where I also work.

Liam sent up his drone for me to caputre a “taste of vintage time in the region”.

He also then added the soundtrack  #Riverlandwine #LiamMasonProductions

The Riverlands Winter Wonderland

A Winter Getaway

Winter in the Riverland turns in to a winter wonderland

7th June 2019

Winter is a beautiful time in the Riverland.  With fresh cold evenings, misty and even frosty mornings and your days become what we call “sunny country winter days”.

With over 300kms of the River Murray, serving as the lifeblood of the landscape and the community, it is a dream for anyone who loves the outdoors. Fishing, water sports, boating, gliding, national parks and walking trails, not to mention the magnificent panoramic backdrop of the River Murray limestone cliffs with layers of colour and texture; it is simply breathtaking.

The Riverland is served by five main towns, Barmera, Berri, Loxton, Renmark and Waikerie, each with their unique tales to tell. All offer a warm and hospitable experience and visitors will find a vast array of activities in and around these towns.

Which makes Barmera’s hidden gem, “Crossfield Cottage B&B” a great base to then go out and explore this beautiful region.

Lake Bonney is a photographed place, which can features the night sky in all its glory and the stars above that are scattered accross the night sky.   Show casing the amazing sunsets and sunrises that outshines all.

Exploring nature by moving through the National parks, the wetlands and floodplains of the region.  walking the boardwalk at Banrock station lets you appreciate the sourroundings. These areas are full of native birds & wildlife to enjoy.

Taking time to experience the beauty of the River Murray Kayak or canoe.  A chance to see the wild life on the water and along the riverbank or up in the trees.

In the Riverland we have “Canoe Adventures” or “Canoe the Riverland” buisnesses that can take you on their informative and relaxed guided tours.  Or you can hire your canoe and expxlore at your own pace.

Riverland is also home to fantastic wineries and distilleries to explore and to enjoy.  Award winning labels are produced in our region.  Apple and Lemon Ciders are another popular refreshment within the region.

Create your own memories while relaxing, sharing time with each other, creating your new happy place without the daily grind of work life, the intusions or modern day life, the schedules and time frames.

After a day of exploring, why not just cosy up to a wood fire, pouring yourself a glass of wines from one of our finest Riverland wines and enjoy a cheese & Antipasto platter.

Or Step back in time and soak in the elegance and charm of the clawfoot slipper bath filled with bubbles & drift away for a while.  Nothing like a bath to help you soothe and relax.  People have long known the therapeutic benefits of water, helping relieve stress and anxiety, and that’s exactly what a bath can do.  An opulence you’re sure to love and enjoy.

Why not escape for a weekend away, midweek getaway, holidays that are well deserved or that Romantic hideaway for a couples retreat to reconnect, relax and recharge.
