Fun Photo Friday is here, and here are some more Barossa Valley favorites:

I have for you today four more images of Jim Lambert’s Lambert Estate Wines, beginning with one of the vineyards:
Several of these vines are nestled among rolling hills:
No tour of a winery would be complete without a look at the cellar, so:
Leaving behind Lambert Estate we made our way to Seppeltsfield Road. The Seppelt Family were once the dominant wine dynasty of this area. Indeed, the Seppeltsfield Winery was established by patriarch Joseph Ernst Seppelt back in 1851, although to be accurate the first wines at what was originally a dairy operation were not produced until 1867.
An interesting feature along one stretch of Seppeltsfield Road is a segment lined with palm trees, which I’ll show you on this week’s Fun Photo Friday. But the vineyards along the road are fun as well:
Until Friday, I’ll leave you with this last rather peaceful image taken at Lambert Estate:
Beans and Cream was, quite simply, fantastic. Very interesting gelato and sorbet flavors from which to choose. Here’s a photo of some of their selection from Steempeak (unfortunately, Beans and Cream’s website does not do them justice):
Up here at the lookout are two other attractions. One is Barossa Pioneer Memorial:
The other is the Barossa Sculpture Park:
But our time here was limited. It was approaching lunch, and ice cream will only hold you over for so long. Our next stop was Lambert Estate Wines:
The founder of Lambert Estate is from Wisconsin. His name is Jim Lambert, and he was very entertaining when he dropped in on us during our lunch and wine tasting. His charming wife Pam also made an appearance. Let’s take a look at just one of the many vineyards here:
We’ll be returning for another look at Lambert Estate on Wednesday before heading on to Seppeltsfield Road. But for now it’s time to dig into lunch to go with our wine tasting. And what a spread it was. Each platter, one of which is pictured below, served two people. I shared this one with the gentleman across the table from me, and Ursula shared one with his wife:
Everything you see above was locally produced. Now that’s impressive! And nobody left hungry.
