It would be an understatement to say that the current Corona Virus situation has impacted many industries within Australia, particularly small businesses in regional areas. To give these businesses a helping hand, Edible Blooms have come up with Hampers in Hand gifts. The first region to be promoted, as part of their range, is the Barossa Valley, which has been off limits to visitors temporarily due to a Corona Virus outbreak.
The Hampers in Hand gifts promoting the Barossa Valley region comes in four sizes and we were fortunate enough to experience The Barossa Wine and Cheese Gift Hamper. This particular hamper supports businesses such as The Barossa Valley Cheese Company, Steiney’s Traditional Mettwurst, Relish The Barossa, Barossa Valley Country Biscuits, Trevallie Orchard and Pindarie wines.
The Barossa Valley Cheese Company is the success of the hard-working Victoria McClurg, who is also a qualified wine maker. After a stint making wine in Bordeaux, France, Victoria found a passion for cheese, the joy in sharing cheese with friends, and pairing cheese with wine.
Steiney’s Traditional Mettwurst is a family business that uses small batch artisan crafting techniques to makes exceptional quality Mettwurst with a distinctive Barossa Valley flavour. Steiney’s Traditional Mettwurst only uses 100% Australian Grass Fed Angus Beef and 100% Australian Pork and is owned by Scott and Tash Goldsmith who continue to produce products as it has been done for the last 40 years since they began.
Relish The Barossa specialise in producing premium contemporary and traditional products sourced from the famous soils of The Barossa Valley. Their focus on creating produce that retains the bespoke and artisan flavours of the Barossa is matched by their attention to quality production.
Dean Chambers has been a baker for 40 years and has produced the delicious Cheese Discs. 25 years ago, Dean and his wife Annie started Barossa Country Biscuits. While Dean does the baking, Annie and her sister Erica do all the packaging. All of their products are natural with no artificial colours or flavourings.
Trevallie Orchard is a family owned orchard located at Angaston in the heart of the Barossa Valley. Like the vineyards of the region, Trevallie’s history is steeped in tradition with their first trees planted over 50 years ago. All their fruit is grown, cut, dried and packaged on site.
Pindarie is located at the gateway to the Barossa Valley, on Gomersal Road on the Western Ridge. A family owned property with Tony Brooks at the helm after taking over from his grandfather in 1990. Together with Wendy, the transformation of Pindarie began. What was once a run-down and over-cleared farm has become a sustainable and regenerated property with over 12,500 trees planted in the last 20 years. The Tempranillo Sangiovese Shiraz (TSS) is a medium-bodied, lively and lovely modern blend. Bright red in colour, it’s perfumed on the nose and rewarding on the palate.
Support some of the Barossa’s best regional food and wine producers with The Barossa Wine and Cheese Gift Hamper. From the Pindarie red wine to the Barossa Valley cheese selection and condiments, a hamper like this will inspire a romantic connection as its unpacked and enjoyed.
