Angaston is the focus of today’s post. Situated on the eastern side of the Barossa. It was originally known as German Pass, but was later renamed after the politician and banker George Fife Angas, who settled in the area in the 1850s.
As you approach Angaston there are a couple of excellent lunch venues,Vintners Barossa and Saltram Wine Estate & Salter’s Restaurant.
Once you get into Angaston itself it is a great place for an amble up and down the main street, with beautiful historic buildings lining each side. There is great shopping with homewares, organic foods, women’s and children’s clothing stores. For those interested in blacksmiths there is an operating Blacksmith (open on weekends and public holidays.)
Dining options include Casa Carboni Italian Cooking School & Enoteca where Chef Matteo offers cooking classes and a traditional enoteca, right next door to the Barossa Cheese Company where you can taste a selection of locally made cheeses.
There is the newly opened Hive Barossa Cafe & Co Work Space, D&M’s Bakery Cafe – Angaston, Soul with Zest, Barossa Siam, 40s Cafe and Wanera Wine Bar & Restaurant to name but a few options for either a sustenance recharge or a longer lunch.
If wine tasting is something you are interested in you can visit the iconic Yalumba, Taste Eden Valley or Thorn-Clarke Wines.
Angaston is a beautiful little town and well worth a visit.
